Alpaca for Adoption
Isaac is a lovely alpaca with a very gentle and quiet personality inherited from his mother Bianca. He was born in August 2015 and is one of our most experienced alpacas on our walking team. In 2017 he won his class and came reserve champion in the male white class at the South of England show. He was praised for his conformation and uniformity of fleece. He has a large distinguishing moustache and hums frequenly when out with our visitors on the walks.
Jimmy is the oldest and most experienced of our adoption alpacas. He's a white 7 year old and otherwise know as Mr goofy as his lower front teeth are very prominent.
Jimmy is the experienced one who is cool in all situations including the sudden appearance of small yappy dogs which would worry many other alpacas. Jimmy's other love aswell as going out walks, is agility, and over several years now he's the one who enjoys a jump or two. If you adopt him then you'll get a chance to do some agility as well as walks.
Oscar is the cutest little boy, he’s 18 mths old (as at Nov ’18) and is the smallest of our alpacas born in 2017 and also the lightest ever born being only 5.3kgs at birth. Typically 8kg is the average. He had to be bottle fed for 6 weeks as his mum had very little milk.
Oscar has a lovely attitude and walks very well on the headcollar, already being a regular on the walking team. He was also chosen for our first alpaca wedding visit so he’s perfect as one of our adoption alpacas.
Pedro is a lovely soft fleeced white boy also from the class of 2017. He's one of the few who has his own greeting card and was very photogenic as a baby cria. His fleece is one of the softest and there's plenty of it!
He's just starting out on his walking career. He's been on some practice walks on the paths and will soon be going out for real with some of our customers.
Rafa alias 'Kisser' is one of the most people friendly alpacas we have ever bred. He loves people and will come up to nuzzle us in the field whilst we are busy poo picking!
Rafa is named after Rafael Nadal the tennis player, we never got round to letting the real one know he had an alpaca named after him! Although he's not going to be a prize winner in the ring Rafa's personality has already won him an army of fans.
Scrunchy was born in 2017 boy, and was one of the first in his year to become a regular on our walking team. He enjoys walking and was the easiest to train to walk on the lead rope. He's called Scrunchy because he grows so much fleece around his head he looks really 'scrunchy! Consequenlty he has been registered as Victor Scrunchy rather than just his real name Victor. He grows lots of fleece and looks so cuddly from October to May. He is very friendly and calm around our visitors and also loves carrots!

Feedback from our Adopters
Our visits have been really enjoyed by our adopters. We had a great recommendation from Kate see below....
We really enjoyed our day at Yew Tree Alpacas. Many ‘adoptions’ give you very little chance really to meet your adoptive animal; however, this package seemed very well designed – I felt it would strike a good balance between keeping the alpacas happy, which is important, while giving my daughter the chance really to get to know more about them. The parcel sent out was fun to open and she enjoyed looking at the photos and the lovely sample of wool.
We were so lucky with the weather on that first visit – the farm was a beautiful setting with the sun out! We had plenty of time with the alpacas and a chance to ask all the questions we wanted. We came away feeling that we had really got to know more about these fascinating animals.
It was also nice to have the tea and cake offered and the chance to look at the knitted goods made with alpaca wool – all very tempting! We are really looking forward to coming back again in the summer.
