ABOUT SHERIFF ALPACAS
Welcome to Sheriff Alpacas, based just outside of Strensall, York. Surrounded by rolling fields and woods you can “mosey on down” for the ultimate Alpaca experience.
Situated on a 7-acre organic farm, the Sheriffs really do live an idyllic life. Founder Caroline Barugh purchased her first Alpaca in 2014 and today has a strong herd of 30 alpacas growing year on year.
Walking with alpacas is great fun and we hope to make it both enjoyable and informative. During your visit, you'll learn about the special qualities of alpaca fleece and how each alpaca has its own personality and quirks.
We will introduce you to our walking team, our mums and cria (baby alpacas). Get up close and personal with these beautiful animals, feel how soft their fleeces are and listen to them hum to each other; you may even get a kiss!
