As well as our friendly champion alpacas there are lots of other fabulous animals that live with us at Liberty Hill Farm.
Members of the British Angora Goat Society, we have a lovely (and naughty) herd of around 10 Angora goats which includes breeding females/does, kids and 2 bucks from our founding pedigree champion Corrymoor Galileo. They have beautiful fleeces that we turn into yarn. From time to time we do sell some of our Angora goats so please get in touch with us if you are interested.
The pesky pygmy goats! You might see them in pygmy goat hotel (made by Paul and Ross, designed by Gilleous) or you might see them ‘free-ranging’…
Thor the Pygmy billy
Thor is our stud goat and we’re expecting our first Thor babies in 2019…
Not quite an Angora goat, but adorable and there’s a story to share with you about how he arrived with us that involves a slice of toast and some broken glass…
He’s knocking on a bit now and is suffering a bit with arteritis so be nice to him when you see him please.
We have many chickens!
Golden brahmas have feathery feet and are very tame.
Cream Crested legbars (lay blue eggs) are one of our favourites – check out Stanger our cockerel!
We also have some rescue battery hens. Eggs are in plentiful supply at Barnacre Alpacas!
The lowland sheep
Some real characters here! Don’t leave any food about because they will eat it!!! We have 4 lowland sheep which are Jacob/texel crosses.
Apparently one of the largest and heaviest domestic and native sheep breeds, our little flock of 7 Wensleydale sheep is full of character and lovely colours! Oh yes and we’re hoping for lambs in the Spring of 2019…
