What you'll do

Meet the curious and social herd of Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas! Join Shannon as you get up close and personal with 13 fluffy faces, all with their own unique personalities and quirks. Shannon will share with you how this herd is different from all other llama/alpaca herds, hand-selected for their personalities to be shared for therapy and education throughout their Pacific Northwest community.

Curious about the difference between llamas and alpacas? What animal family they're related to and why they have such a reputation for spitting? How about kissing a llama - has that ever even crossed your mind?! All of your most camelid-inspired questions will be answered (including "what the heck is a camelid?!"), and you'll learn fun facts you would have never considered before!

In this experience, you will be introduced to 6 llamas and 7 alpacas, learning their names and what their role is in the herd/on the farm. A typical herd meet & greet lasts around 15-20 minutes followed by plenty of time for questions and answers along the way.

Hello! I am Shannon Joy and I have been working alongside my mother, Lori, raising llamas since 2002. In 2006 my mother had a calling to begin sharing our original llama, Rojo, as a therapy animal and in 2007 that dream became a reality when we got him certified through a local Portland, OR animal hospital.

Since getting Rojo certified, we have added four other full-time therapy llamas and alpacas to our herd, several more in training, and have gone on thousands of therapy visits into adult care communities, special-needs schools, and hospitals.

When covid hit, we have found virtual farm tours to be an excellent way to introduce so many to our whole herd. Since the pandemic began, I have hosted over 150 virtual tours introducing folks to our herd from all over the world!
