Alpaca farm – the largest in Estonia!

Pärnu maakond, Niidu küla

Alpacas are curious, albeit slightly shy animals that simply beam with positive energy and cheer you up with their large eyes and smiley faces! In the Kännu Alpaca Farm, you can see alpacas – Peruvian animals grown for wool because of their wonderfully soft coat. Alpacas like to spend their days eating grass on the pastures. When guests arrive, they gather by the fence and wait for treats.  In the farm, you can pet an alpaca and feed it treats. Beside alpacas, you can also see cute pygmy goats, miniature sheep, Angora rabbits, and chickens. Come and visit the alpacas with your whole family! You can buy souvenirs and products made of alpaca wool in our farm shop.
