Killinagh Lodge, the environment

Do come and visit us. We we used to have a variety of ducks that supplied eggs and two goats which supplied milk, from which cheese, cream and yoghurt were made. They also helped to keep back the serious overgrowth of brambles and ivy. We had donkeys that simply delighted us; they used to pull the cart bringing turf from our turf bank.  We leave their photos here as a fond memory. 
However the alpacas have since taken over all the availale space and even 100 of them, as it turns out, are less work than just the two goats and the cheese-making.

The alpacas blended in well with all the other livestock which is  testimony to their tolerance and versatility.   We know of alpacas being run in the same field with a variety of other animals.  In fact these gentle animals show little aggression, preferring to run rather than fight.  The one exception to this is in relation to foxes and wild dogs which alpacas will attack if they feel threated either for themselves or their young.  This protection has also been known to include lambs, young calves and poultry. 
We will be happy to show you around and answer any questions. You are also welcome to spend time with the Alpacas and enjoy them for yourself.
