Alpaca Your Bags for Hush Hush Glamping!

Updated: Feb 15, 2023

Have you ever been glamping with alpacas before? Well, now’s your chance!

Fostings Farm, the home of Hush Hush Glamping, is occupied by our friendly and inquisitive herd of alpacas.


Alongside Hush Hush Glamping, the Fostings Alpacas herd breeding programme is part of the farm’s diversification plan. We breed and rear cria to sell as weaning males and keep on the females who join the breeding program when of age.



Our Alpaca Story


With traditional farming becoming harder each passing year, we knew that we needed to diversify, as the farm was unable to continue supporting the family. We looked for animals that could be kept in much lesser stocking levels but still bring in income. Cue alpacas!


I had previously worked with alpacas and persuaded Kevin to attend an alpaca husbandry course. After both falling in love with alpacas, we made the decision to start our own herd here at the farm.


We purchased our first group of 4 alpacas back in summer 2018 from a local breeder. Since then, we have been busy growing our herd by welcoming cria each year, purchasing additional breeding females, and selecting stud males for the breeding programme.


Frequently Asked Questions


We often receive questions about our alpaca herd here at the farm. Some of these include:


1) Can I see the alpacas during my stay?

Our alpacas live in different fields on the farm across the year, according to their pasture management schedule. So, if they are not right outside your pod, they will only be a short walk away. And don't forget you can add feeding the alpacas as an optional extra to your booking for the opportunity to get up close with them!


2) Are the alpacas friendly?

Our herd of alpacas are extremely friendly and inquisitive. Guests can stroll over to the alpacas and sit with them if they like.


3) Can I pet the alpacas?

Alpacas aren’t like dogs so don’t like to be ‘petted’. However, they are often happy to hang out with you if you are calm and quiet.


4) When are the babies born?

Cria (baby alpacas) are usually born between May-August. So, if you’re staying with us between May and December, you may see some youngsters about!
