Agistment (or livery) is the term used in the alpaca industry to describe “board and lodgings”. For a small weekly fee we will look after your alpaca(s) at Woodbine Farm, providing all the necessary care and attention as we do with our own herd.
Whether you already own alpacas but have limited space or you are looking to purchase alpacas for the first time, an agistment arrangement could be just what you need.
Agistment can be a great option for people purchasing their first alpacas, but do not immediately have the adequate land of their own. It can be a viable way of entering this emergent industry and as alpacas need to be kept in groups of at least three, provides you with a chance to start you ownership with just a single animal. Take a look at the vast range of alpacas we have for sale here at Woodbine Farm.
When leaving your alpacas with us you are welcome to visit and of course make any big decisions regarding your animals. Agistment is ideal for you to learn the basic animal husbandry skills and experience handling your alpacas in the correct manner.
