It all began in 2017 when I met three gorgeous alpacas at a trade show. I had seen alpacas before at children’s farms but seeing these three boys sparked something special. The alpacas’ inquisitive nature, unusual looks and calming influence intrigued me and I set about finding out a lot more about them.

Whilst working full time as a secondary school teacher I took every opportunity to spend more time with these curious, docile creatures. A lifestyle change had been on the cards for a while and I hoped that working with Alpacas would be the way forward to a more fulfilling and giving life. My dreams were allocated deadlines, turning those dreams into plans and I bought my herd early 2019 and Big Sky Alpacas was born. January 2022 saw the arrival of our two small standard donkeys, Mr D and Sonny, and that was the beginning of our much loved donkey herd here at Big Sky Alpacas

So what are my dreams? It’s simple really, it is to provide people with an experience based around our alpacas or donkeys, that is not only educational but leaves them with happy and treasured memories. Whether it be an alpaca walk where you can take an amble with your alpaca, a donkey experience full of cuddles or a visit from our alpacas or donkeys for those who are unable to come to us. We love to bring smiles to faces by attending care homes, schools, special parties and events.

We are so blessed to live in this much undiscovered part of the Country, our Alpaca Experiences are based at our home in Beesby near the market town of Alford and we are easily accessible whether you are visiting the seaside on holiday or like us are fortunate enough to call these beautiful natural surroundings your home. Our experiences are just 9 minutes’ drive from the nearest beach at Mablethorpe and 12 miles from the fabulous market town of Louth.

Situated between the Lincolnshire Wolds, designated an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the sea, it is a location that is well worth a visit.
