We adopted Jake and Elwood in 2014 from Namaste Llama Farm in Alburnett, IA. (Jake is the brown llama, and Elwood is the white one.)
When you visit, you’ll find Jake and Elwood grazing in the pasture or lazing in the barn. If you want to give them a treat, just ask. We have alpaca pellets they like to snack on.
If you’re wondering if llamas really spit…yes. But it’s more like a sneeze, and they only do it when they’re mad, usually at each other. They’ve only spit on us a couple of times, and it was when we were giving them medicine they didn’t want to take. Don’t worry; they don’t spit at visitors feeding them treats—and they never bite.
Oh, and hey…Do you want a great organic fertilizer rich in potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorous for your flower or vegetable garden? Bring a bucket and take home some FREE LLAMA POOP! (Yes, for real.) It has almost no smell and is easy to scoop and spread. Llama farmers refer to it as “llama beans.” Fun fact: The Incas in Peru burned dried llama poop for fuel.
