National Open Farm Days Success

09 September 2021     British Alpaca Society

At the time of writing I have had reports back from 23 (out of 100) farms that were open to the public and the total attendance for these farms is over 10,000,

Comments that came back include:

“We had a wonderful time on Saturday,,,,,,,It was a really enjoyable day for visitors, helpers and me too.  Can’t wait to do it again.”

“Both the response and atmosphere were amazing with visitors ranging from those with a passing curiosity to those with a desire to pursue ownership”.

“We had an absolute blast at the weekend! We have never run an event at the farm and are not open to the public so this was a first!   We had about 800 visitors over both days. A lovely steady stream all day from start to finish. All the feedback since the event and on the day has been wonderful and people have been very appreciative of the chance to see the farm and meet the animals.”

“We were blown away by the turn out we received. It was a great day and the smile on all of the kids’ faces was amazing and lovely to see.”

“We made new friends with some of the locals (we’ve only been trekking 5 weeks!) And showed our old friends what we’ve achieved. We got some super feedback (All good)!”
