Holly Hagg Community Farm and Alpaca Trekking
We are a not-for-profit community farm in Crosspool, Sheffield. We use permaculture principles to grow organic food and care for our animals, wildlife and community. We run volunteering sessions and alpaca treks several times a week as well as hosting occasional events. Sorry, no drop in visitors. If you would like to visit the farm please become a volunteer, book a trek, attend an event or arrange a special group visit.
Treks with our beautiful herd of alpacas and llama run several times a week. Our treks are very popular and can book up quickly. Gift vouchers available.
We are entirely volunteer-run, and new volunteers are always welcome. We run drop-in volunteering sessions for all every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon, as well as looking for regular trek guides and animal feeders. We also offer group volunteering sessions for various organisations, in addtion to providing work experience and placements to students and DoE participants. Find out more…
We offer group visits for local youth groups and SEN groups who want to come and learn more about nature, meet the animals and have a go at pond-dipping. We also provide tailored treks and animal encounters for local charities, hospitals and youth organisations who work with people who might benefit from some time connecting with our land and animals. To arrange a special group visit please get in touch…
Each year we have an Open Day and a Fleece Festival, as well as visits to local fairs and fêtes. Open day is usually held in June and is very popular giving our local community the chance to explore our 3-acre community farm, meet the animals, go pond dipping, enjoy craft activities and buy alpaca yarn and more in our pop-up shop. You can find out about upcoming events here and on our Facebook page.
