Chetwyn Farms | Destination Ontario

Unique experiences at Ontario’s alpaca farms include farm tours, scheduled feedings, alpaca walks, yoga retreats, picnics and even overnight farm stays.

Shop for gifts, products and apparel made from the alpaca’s thick coat of fleece. Considered a luxury fibre, it’s softer than cashmere, warmer than most wool and hypoallergenic.

Note that most farms will require booking and reservations in advance. Also, some of these properties may have an age limit for the alpaca walks. Wear comfortable clothing and close-toed walking shoes when visiting a farm.
