PRIVATE BOOKINGS AT TOFT
You can now book in your own group visit, whether you are a crafter, animal enthusiast, WI or a community group. A visit to TOFT will be an exciting date to add to your calendar and we can tailor your experience to suit your needs and expectations.
WHAT DO WE SEE?
When you arrive here at TOFT you will be welcomed into TOFT Studio. We can alter the length and path of the walk around the farm to cater for the physical ability of your group. For those wishing to stretch their legs we can do up to an hour long walk of the farm to meet the whole herd of 200 alpacas. If you fancy a more leisurely stroll we can offer your group a short trip into nearby fields to get close to the alpacas and of course provide plenty of fantastic photo opportunities.
Along the way our expert member of staff will teach you everything you will ever need to know about alpacas – starting with why they are not llamas and taking you through how and why alpacas are now popularly farmed in the UK.
Once back at the Studio you can enjoy refreshments as you relax after your tour of the farm, while we continue explaining our field to fashion process to enlighten you on how we turn fleece into luxurious yarn and knitwear.
You will then complete the visit with a chance to purchase any of our luxury 100% wool and unique alpaca products.
If you are a knitting group, community group or WI why not select one of our current workshops we already offer, but choose a date which can suit your meeting time? You can always arrange for a half day session, and we will do our best to cater for an evening session tailored to your group's needs.
Prices start from £10 per person – please contact us for more details and a quotation for your party and their needs.
We can accommodate up to 100 people subject to activity required.
A farm walk and talk will last approximately 1.5 hours.
Coffees, cakes and cream teas can be added to your tour.
