Meet our animals at the retreat

Will and I LOVE animals of all kinds and our retreat is a busy place with our farm animals and pets. Our visitors love feeding our small herd of alpacas. We have five girls and three boys. They are due to have cria or baby alpaca in the summer.

Our new arrivals are Ginger and Grunter our friendly and greedy Kune Kune pigs. They love people and will wander over to our neighbours if they feel they are not getting enough attention.

We have our own free range hens, they free range around our property eating bugs and cultivating the garden. The eggs are delicious in our baking.

Both Will and I are from sheep farms so we like to run a few sheep for old times sake. Our ewes are due to have lambs in October.

We have four very tame cows who were bucket reared as calves. They keep the long grass down around the wetland. They are sort of walking lawn mowers
