If you're looking for things to do in the Central Coast this weekend.
Visit our farm and get up close and personal with our alpacas.
Iris Lodge Alpacas is a working farm on the Central Coast where you meet our 60+ alpacas, 42 wiltipoll sheep, horses and cows and our working dog Lola a maremma.
When you arrive at our farm you'll be greeted by Billy, the very special guard alpaca who will demand to be fed a banana upon entering the farm! Along with Billy, they have 14 other alpacas who will meet you including cria (baby alpacas) and Ellie May, the hand raised wiltipoll sheep whose Billy's best friend.
We walk up past the horses to meet Benny and his gang - the flock of wiltipoll sheep who love being fed their grain and carrots. Here you'll have the chance to hand-feed the sheep and learn about what makes wiltipolls different to other sheep and meet Lola the maremma who guards the sheep. From here you'll head down to cows & calves and hand-feed them. Then we get up close and personal with the 60 alpacas to hand feed them.
Once the alpacas are full you'll head back up to the deck with a group of alpacas and guests enjoy a leisurely with the alpacas in front of them.
Iris Lodge also runs an afternoon farm visit which is similar to the breakfast except that they don't provide an afternoon tea for guests.
