Please visit our llamas in the field behind the car park. They are gentle, inquisitive creatures who may follow you as far as the first stile on the footpath through our land. You can continue onto the cliffs above Mullion Cove and the total walk is about ten minutes.
The llamas were all born in 2010 at Llamaland near Truro and came to the craft centre a year later when they were all coming up to one year old. Although they are mostly short coated, we are hoping at some point to use their fleece here at the centre.
During our Christmas Fayre we introduced Liam and Elliot to our visitors, who enjoyed meeting them at close quarters. All of the llamas are named, Liam being the smaller of the two brown ones and Geoffrey has a black mask on the right side of his face.
Llamas are often kept to protect other livestock from foxes and they seem successful in guarding sheep. We hope they will take care of our chickens, who supply the coffee shop with fresh eggs daily. So far this has worked although the llamas seem more friendly with the foxes than scary.
Look forward to seeing you here soon.
Liam, Hero, Elliot, Tim, Legend, Zebedee and Hans
