Ever wanted to take Alpacas out for a walk? Well, now you can! There’s this amazing farm in Granby that allows you to take Alpacas out for a walk. Whoever said you have to fly all the way to Peru to get up close and personal with Alpacas has never visited Verger Champêtre all the way in Granby! This family-owned farm is now giving its visitors the possibility to take Alpacas out for a walk. I mean how fun is that?
Farm owners Mario and Thérèse are constantly working hard to come up with ideas to charm their visitors. With over 250 animals in their petting zoo that are scattered along the trails of their farm, you just don’t know what you’ll come across! And if you haven’t gotten around to getting your Christmas Tree yet, well now’s your chance! They have a wide range of trees for you to choose from all right up on their farm!
Their most popular activity, however, is definitely taking the Alpacas on a walk! Their Alpacas have even started becoming celebrities by appearing in shows like Worth It and off course XOXO. If you watched XOXO, then you probably saw the episode when Oli’s team took Alpacas out for a walk. Have you not been dreaming about having your own Alpaca since you saw them on TV? Honestly, it’s all I’ve been thinking about!
