How can you not love baby goats and Alpacas? Tina and her family were warm, welcoming, and very knowledgeable. I loved the experience but was most impressed with their care and compassion for the animals. We had a blast.

This was a great experience. We saw animals very close and interacted with alpacas. They are such fun animals. Tina is super friendly. This is a great memory and my kids really enjoyed it. Highly recommend this experience. Really, really fun, we talked about it all day.

I loved everything about this experience! The minute after we got out of the car we were greeted by the most beautiful dogs who loved being petted and doted on (shout out to Rosie and Birdie in particular!). Tina and her husband made us all feel very covid safe and cared for, and they handled the fact one of us in the group had a fear of birds really well, never making fun of her and looking out for the birds on the property. It was a delight being able to see not just the alpacas and goats on the farm, but all their animals (baby emus and adorable pigs who could do tricks). And I had no idea I’d be able to enter the pen with goats and alpacas and feed them with no barriers! And i even held a baby goat which was perfect 💕 The soap making and felting session at the end was the perfect way to end the experience and gave us time to chat with Tina and the two other guests there while learning a lot more about how to make soap and use alpaca fleece. All in all, a wonderful day spent with amazing animals and lovely people.

Nature, animals, great host, and an amazing location. What else can you ask for in an experience. The animals were super friendly and awesome to see. I personally didn’t know what to expect from felting soap but my wife and I had a blast. If you want to experience something unique and new, be sure to check out Tina’s farm.

LOVED this part of our trip. We stayed in Paso and just drove to different activities. Tina and her husband were amazing hosts. It's a little bit of a drive (and on curvy roads) out there, but was well worth it. The animals were awesome and my animal-loving son could not get enough love from their 2 big guard dogs. :-) We loved learning about the different animals, especially the alpacas.
