One Farm, Two Purposes

Severn Valley Alpacas is an agricultural smallholding. We breed & train alpacas and produce a small quantity of fruit and veg. This is our family business. We also provide alpaca educational visits for Schools, College's and community groups. We also provide experiences such as trekking, private picnics, private wellbeing & therapy activities and seasonal alpaca events.

Alpaca Farming and Produce

We operate a developing alpaca breeding heard as an agricultural business as well as providing animal husbandry educational sessions for local colleges & schools. In addition we offer wellbeing and leisure experiences. You can find us about halfway between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth, in the Severn Valley.

We also produce and sell from our carpark sales booth a small amount of seasonal fruit, vegetables, eggs, alpaca fiber, and alpaca manure — the secret behind the outlandish size of our vegetables. Free local delivery when available.

Wellbeing Experiences

We believe that everyone has a right to access the countryside and we recognise the positive impact that doing so has upon an individual. To facilitate this we will offer individual and group activities that are meaningful and thus promote a positive effect on health and wellbeing. This can be specific or in general terms.

We welcome all individuals and respect and embrace diversity.

  • Wolverley Animal Centre

    We brought 25 Year 10 BTEC Animal Care students to Severn Valley Alpacas as part of their animal health unit. Severn Valley staff were able to provide a bespoke day covering all elements of alpaca & equine husbandry, care, health and maintenance - vital for our student’s units. Each and every student had ample opportunity to get hands on with the animals which included walking, handling and restraint, grooming and even trailer loading! Staff were excellent with our students and were able to instil confidence in nervous learners and stretch & challenge our high achievers. All students returned to school with a wealth of hands-on skills and a newfound confidence when working alongside larger species. We hope to return every year for our animal health unit.
