Due to their very inquisitive nature you will no doubt notice our alpacas watching you and they are particularly fond of laughing at people’s reversing techniques!
The site is flat and laid to lawn (awnings with breathable groundsheets only please). There is a freshwater point within the field and direct gated access to the toilet disposal and recycling point.
The farm is unique as it is an off grid eco farm. This means we have no connection to the electricity grid or mains sewage, etc. Instead we produce our our own power and process sewage locally using green techniques. This does incur a few restrictions and will requrie you to adapt to green living.
ELECTRIC HOOK UPS: 6 AMP.
We have installed Electric Hook Ups (with 6Amp, 1.4KW, breakers). This will enable you to use lights, fridge, low power kettle, water pump, battery charging, microwave but will not allow for high current draws like heaters. So, no electric space heaters, high power water heaters or kettles. For heating and cooking please use gas. You may need to switch things on and off selectively. Most truma water heaters will be fine.
CHEMICAL POLICY: NO ANTI BACTERIAL CHEMICALS
This includes the common blue additives that are commonly used in a chemical loo as well as anti bacterial hand soap, washing up liquid, pink flush additive, etc. Instead, you will need to use an approved bio toilet additive. Not all chemicals listed as green or eco can be used here. For a full list of acceptable chemicals click here.
We stock a very good additive called Blue Bio. We can provide it at a heavily discounted price (£10). It is probably cheaper (per use) than your currrent chemical. This can also be used in your flush.
Some customers simply don't use a chemical additive or use our on site toilets which are accessible 24x7 and have hot running water.
Please ensure that your toilet cassette is free of anti bacterial chemicals before arriving. We cannot dispose of chemicals.
About the Site:
As well as alpacas, we also have pygmy goats, rare breed sheep, free range ducks, guinea pigs and rabbits at the farm and, depending on the season, we may have rare breed pigs. Our free range duck eggs and home reared pork and lamb is available on site.
Beyond the alpaca paddocks you will enjoy viewing the beautiful Chiltern Hills and Dunstable Downs. Overhead are many species of bird including red kites, barn owls, tawny owls with many other species in the nearby woodland including bull finch, chaffinch and woodpeckers.
Light pollution is very low, considering we are only 5 miles from 2 towns, which allows for some spectacular skies at night. Due to the wonderful open vista and elevated location you are advised to use storm straps on your awning in strong winds.
The site is secure with cctv cameras and an electric gate. A key fob will be provided for the gate but please return it on departure.
