Do you fancy taking an alpaca for a walk? Then join the queue…
With summer round the corner and lockdown easing, trekking companies are reporting record bookings
When Chris and Vicki Agar bought three pregnant alpacas in 2000 they had no idea that years later they would have more than 100 animals and be running hugely popular alpaca walks five times a week.
“If you turn the clock back to 2019, for weekends we were booked up three months in advance and for weekdays a month in advance, with people clamouring, trying to get in on walks,” said Chris, who owns Spring Farm Alpacas, near Fletchling in East Sussex.
