»All visitors must sign a waiver before entering any area inhabited by our animals.

»Adopted alpacas may not leave the farm with adopters. Certain alpacas are available for walks around designated areas of the farm, and may not be removed from the property.

»Visitors must be accompanied by a member of farm staff when visiting their adopted alpaca.

»Visitors must abide by our biosecurity protocols. Adopters who refuse to comply with these protocols will not be allowed into areas inhabited by our animals.

»As this is a working farm, all visits must take place either during store hours or at an appointed date and time. Please ensure all children are under supervision at all times, this is for their safety as well as that of our animals.

»Akelei-Alpakas SA reserves the right to end an alpaca walk or visit if we deem conditions unsafe (ex. alpaca stressed, weather change, adopter unable to follow instruction)

Biosecurity Protocol

Due to the fact that there are communicable diseases between animal species, for the safety of our animals, we operate as follows:

»No boots or shoes worn at other farms or zoos within 48hrs.

»Plastic bags can be put over shoes on request if adopter has been in contact with other zoo animals the past 48 hours.

»We ask that you wash your hands before handling the alpacas and preferably afterwards.

»We request that you not wear the same clothes that have been worn while working with cattle, as there are serious diseases/parasites that may be transmitted by them.

We are a closed farm in that no new animals have come on the farm in the past 2 Years. That being said, any animals that go out or come in for breeding are placed in quarantine for 2 weeks — Same goes for animals that go to shows where other animals might be in attendance.

*Please note that any guests who refuse to abide by our biosecurity protocols will not be permitted into areas of the farm where our animals live.
