Who We Are
Artemis Alpacas are located on the premises of the family run Yew Tree Farm, in Halewood, Liverpool. We embarked on our adventure with a small herd of 5 pregnant girls in 2017. We are now a growing herd of 17, 11 girls and 6 boys, our love for these beautiful creatures has grown beyond belief. We started looking after our Alpacas on our friend’s fields in Southport. In July 2019 we were lucky to find Yew Tree Farm only a few miles away from our home and moved the herd to their new home. Yew Tree Farm has 23 acres of farm land providing a beautiful surroundings to carry out our walks.
Since 2000, Yew Tree Farm has been cultivating and supporting wonderful local produce, from their own free range chicken eggs to organic honey. The scenery at Yew Tree farm is something we want our visitors to make the most of, being a short drive out of the city centre, it is an oasis of calm.
There is the wonderful cafe on site, called "The Coffee Barn" from which local produce can be sampled. After your alpaca experience, some home made refreshments are an absolute must. There is also 'The Barn at Yew Tree Farm' function suite, an ideal venue for parties, weddings, corporate events and other special occasions - all of which the alpacas would love to help you enjoy with extra special memories !
We have started our adventure with the Alpacas using Camelid Dynamics, a technique that uses positive training methods to gain their trust and give us a greater understanding of them. Our aim is to move towards Alpaca assisted Therapies with these amazing animals. Alpacas are fascinating, inquisitive, intelligent, gentle animals. They are unique in their ability to provide emotional support and promote wellness in many situations. They are full of fun and respond to human interaction.
We believe that our beautiful alpacas have immense qualities and deserve to be treated with respect and love.
