Kensmyth is an Alpaca farm first and foremost but is also a livestock farm. So there may or may not be other livestock of different ages in addition to Alpaca (who are always here) depending on the time of year – we also have to sell them too! Please note that Kensmyth has not had ducks here since 2013 but we do have miniature ponies and Rare Breed Draught horses.
