Ozokwenza

Your visit begins with a meet up and quick safety briefing on how to interact with the Alpacas and Goats. Then it's off to the chicken yard where you’ll get a hands-on experience with our girls. We’ll talk about the rewards of raising backyard chickens. Collect some eggs to take home with you so you can have the freshest, most nutritious, delicious breakfast ever! Next we'll visit the goats. The goats will come when called and eat leaves from our hands. Everyone will have treats to offer the goats. There will be opportunities for pics all along the way. We'll then set off to our fluffy friends. Alpaca are gentle, friendly, wonderful creatures. You will be amazed at their incredible soft fleece and their large, expressive eyes which seem to exhibit both wisdom and childlike curiosity. Depending on time of day and the weather you may help bring alpaca to their fields to graze or help feed them their daily grain. Guests are welcome to go into the enclosures and interact with the Alpacas and Goats. All will be able to participate in farming activities which may include feeding, moving, or milking. Included in your tour is an “Alpaca Trek” A leisurely 1/2 mile walk across farmland and country roads(guest>7 yrs old). You'll be able to take some great alpaca selfies! Final stop is our farm store where you will have the opportunity to purchase some of our farm products.

Matt is retired US Air Force and Melissa is a Registered Nurse. Who knew how helpful those skills would be to farming and raising animals. We are now in our fourth year of being farmers. If you ever thought of escaping the rat race and living a farm lifestyle then come visit. We will be more than happy to share our experiences and stories. In the past four years we have learned how to keep honey bees, raise and breed Nubian goats, chickens, and care for alpaca. We call it "Farm Therapy". One of the many ways we keep from despairing [about the world] is doing this farming thing. There's a lot of peace in reducing our footprint and living our values. Eating our homegrown foods, enjoying nature, raising our animals, and most importantly learning new stuff everyday.

Our visit to Shaka Alpaca was one of the best parts of our trip to Blue Ridge. Matt and his crew were very enthusiastic and informative. They welcomed us like family, and introduced us to the animals on their beautiful farm. Our favorite part was us taking the alpacas on a walk…… what a unique and memorable experience!

We loved Shaka Alpaca! So many animals! The owner was amazing and explained everything! You can tell how much they love animals! We bought their book for our first baby and hope to be able to come one day when our little one is older!

This was a great experience. I took my 13 Year old daughters and they loved it. We feed chickens, goats, rabbits and of course, the Alpacas. It was amazing getting to walk the alpaca around the property and really spend time up close with them. Very hands on. Matt was a wonderful guide and clearly loves the animals and his farm. I highly recommend this experience!

This tour is a great. I will defiantly do it again. The interactions with the animals were plentiful and because of the small group very personalized.
