‪My husband and I visited the farm with our 13 year old niece and nephew. Farmer Gary gave us a private tour of the farm. We were able to pet, feed, walk, and brush the llamas. Farmer Gary taught us so much as we toured the farm. We had very limited knowledge about them beforehand, and we each took some fun facts away with us.
It was wonderful to be up close and personal with these amazing animals. They are soo chill! The farm also offers a trek through the woods with the llamas. It is definitely something we look forward to doing on a future visit. They also have a small gift shop. 😊
Highly recommend! ‬

‪Conveniently, there is a llama farm a mere 10 minute drive from our house! For only $12 per person (and free for our toddler), we booked a tour at Dakota Ridge Farm. The Farm also offers private treks for a more quiet, romantic experience with your very own llama.

We pulled into the charming, inviting farm on a Saturday afternoon, ready for our field trip! Our friendly tour guide greeted us and brought Mike out right away. Mike was a beautiful and loveable llama that really looked more like a “Cusco”, or maybe even “Cookie”. But, Mike it was.

I must admit, when I get close to a llama, I get nervous one will spit on me. Our tour guide reassured us that llamas don’t enjoy spitting either and they use it as a last line of defense or if they are incredibly agitated. He also informed us that these creatures of the Andes are not happy with intense heat and that some llamas have been known to spit at County fairs in the middle of the summer when the sun is angriest with us, Northern Hemisphereans. Somehow, Dakota Ridge farmers keep their llamas happy enough that, supposedly, they have never spat (at a human?). You can confirm that fact when you book your own tour.

The tour was interesting for us, adults, and mildly entertaining for a toddler. Let’s be honest, he just wanted to run around the farm. At the beginning, we let him do just that, walking back and forth through a stable, sometimes following a loose hen. This is really what we wanted, though. We have an abundance of farm books at our house, and this trip is one of many in the future that will allow our son to chart his own course in a new land, surrounded by all kinds of life’s creatures.

After some needed independent exploration, we would pick Elijah up and introduce him to a llama or even a group of llamas. Mind you, we have dozens of stuffed animals, but no real ones. The tour guide asked what kind of exposure our son had had to large animals...we said none. However, our spiritual little boy had no problem petting, and even grabbing these large, gentle animals’ faces and necks. And how did the llamas respond to a grabby toddler? Lovingly… The nervous mom in me had to step back and trust that Animal and Baby were forming their own special bond that I was not to interrupt. I think it is important to mention that I have a toddler who is, in general, quite hesitant to try new things, but something drew him to these beautiful creatures, and he was not afraid. I’m glad this farm is only 10 minutes away, because that interaction definitely makes me want to come back.

This is probably a good time to add that our tour guide mentioned that the farm offered special sensory visits for children with certain sensitivities.

During our tour, we saw llamas of all ages and sizes (or “alpacas” as my husband referred to them throughout the tour - we still don’t know the difference). I would say the older llamas were more toddler-friendly. When the tour was over, we walked a bit more around the farm, and Elijah practiced stepping in puddles. His mud-filled shoes are still in my car because...I just can’t.

While we had a great time on our field trip to Dakota Ridge Farm and made many new llama friends, I can’t possibly write about llamas and not review the book “Llama Llama Red Pajama”. Ambitiously, we’ve tried to create a somewhat multilingual home for our growing family with Spanish as the second language spoken (followed by Turkish and Hebrew to a much less frequent degree). I purchased “Llama Llama Rojo Pijama” as one of Elijah’s Spanish books. Here is my one complaint...the word “llama” means both a loveable cousin to both the alpaca and the camel, and also “calls”. So, when the llama calls to his mother, he llamas his mother. La llama llama rojo pijama a su mama llama y llama...o algo asi. It’s confusing! Sorry to the other parents trying to find fun Spanish-translated books, but I think this one might be better in...not Spanish.

In conclusion, go to Dakota Ridge Farm already!‬

‪My husband & I visited Dakota Ridge Farm on 9/25. It was a great time & wonderful experience. Katrina & Gary were so hospitable & friendly. We did the Private Farm Tour. It was AMAZING!! It was a relaxing and up close experience of the Llamas. We got to brush a Llama, walk a Llama & feed/visit with them. We HIGHLY recommend spending sometime at this farm. We will definitely be back next year for the Trek adventure.‬

‪The owner was personable and informative. We loved our farm tour and we loved our close up interactions with the lamas, including feeding, walking and petting them. We learned a lot about lamas and we were surprised at how lovable they are. My kids had a blast. I would definitely go back. The lamas were therapeutic and angelic. ‬

‪My grandson, daughter and I walked with Katrina and two of her llamas today. It was a beautiful mile long path in the woods. The llamas were very well-behaved and my grandson loved the experience! Katrina and Gary, the owners of the farm, were lovely people.We took our time walking, taking pictures, and looking around the farm at all the cute animals. I would totally recommend this experience to anyone.‬

‪July 20 my grandson had his birthday party at Dakota Ridge Farm. It was wonderful! Gary and Katrina took their time with the us and made sure everyone had a chance to walk, brush, feed and hug the Llamas. The tour was informative, casual and moved from meeting one Llama to being comfortable standing in a barn with many large Llamas! We were also able to use a screened in area for the party. It was charming, inviting and we enjoyed our lunch and birthday cupcakes! Everyone at the party loved the opportunity to interact with the beautiful Llamas. Thank you Katrina and Gary for hosting a birthday party we will never forget!‬

‪I went with two of my friends to meet and trek with the llamas! Mind you we are three retired woman ! It has been really wet this spring, but the paths were in decent shape, not as much mud as I feared. Don’t fear the llamas! They are friendly, and well behaved! They follow directions well.. I have had a harder time walking dogs, then These guys! I recommend this activity! We are lucky to have this treasure so close to SarAtoga Springs. Get there for a spring or fall walk... call and make a reservation‬

‪My 6 year old granddaughter and I had a great llama encounter at this small local farm. We were guided around the property and personally introduced to many of these cute and interesting animals by the owner. We are allowed to walk, pet, groom, and feed these generally friendly and beautiful animals. The young llamas were particularly fun and would push close seeking to get their head or back scratched. This was a great activity for a couple of hours with young children.‬
