Alpakable - Alpaca Farm.

The Büchel/Peter family is living in the middle of the Zurich Oberland on a former farm together with their four alpacas. They practice a traditional craft - the processing of raw wool.

Visit the alpaca farm

A free half-hour visit includes the following:

  • get to know the alpacas
  • feed the alpacas

Help processing the alpaca wool yourself in a workshop or during a spinning course: 

  • examine the raw wool and take a look at the tools
  • pluck the alpaca wool with a wool picker
  • card the alpaca wool with a drum and a hand carder
  • spin the alpaca wool with a spindle on a spinning wheel
  • produce your own thing according to instructions (cost of raw material)
  • costs: CHF 30.– per hour, as of 5 people CHF 50.– per hour

The activities can be booked for individuals and groups of up to 30 people. 


Free parking available. With public transport to Mönchaltorf or Gossau ZH – walk to the alpaca farm within 20 minutes from there.

A heart for people in difficult life situations

Our farm also has a social purpose. Together with people with difficult life situations we make alpaca wool products and improve their social and financial situation.
