The Alpaca Podcast for all things alpaca. Alpaca Tribe is for anyone who feels a connection with alpacas. It is for existing owners, everyone interested in keeping alpacas, people working with alpaca fleece or providing alpaca services, or those who are just alpaca mad.

With our guests, we will look at getting into keeping alpacas; making the most of the ones you have got (and enjoying it); ways to use the fleece, not just store it; opportunities to develop business activities relating to alpacas; and growing in your experience, wherever you are starting.

Each week we will be talking to people like you and to breeders, vets, producers and professionals.

The Alpaca Tribe Podcast is your place for wisdom, guidance and great stories about all things alpaca, from people who know because they have already done it.

    Welcome to the podcast for alpaca people!
    In this episode, I predictably complain about the weather. I am British, after all! Strangers on the farm and more welcome visitors - swallows, ducks and https://british-dragonflies.org.uk/odonata/life-cycle-and-biology/ (dragonflies). Keep the water topped up during the hot weather and try to spend some time with your alpacas - you may want to avoid direct sunlight!
    Take care and hope to see you again soon.
    Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoyed it.

    A walk and talk with the alpacas

    Welcome to the podcast for alpaca people!
    In this episode, it is a great day for a walk and a talk with the alpacas. The lake is starting to fill again (slowly, though it might not last)
    The girls were nicely arranged around the buildings waiting for my arrival. Pic omn the website for you.
    If you can, go spend some time with an alpaca.
    Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoyed it.

    Having fun with your alpacas

    Having fun with your alpacas

    Welcome to the podcast for alpaca people!
    In this episode, I am thinking about how funny alpacas can be and how they are a delight to be around. Remember to always laugh with them, not at them - that goes for those significant humans in your life too!
    Millie the matriarch and Megan and Alys all get a mention.
    What do you do with your alpacas for fun?
    Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoyed it.
