Utah County may not have its own zoo, but unusual animal experiences can still be had. About 50 llamas live on 15 landscaped acres adjoining KHQN radio station one mile south of Spanish Fork. Not only at Llama Fest, but throughout the year, guests are attracted to visit the property because of the animals. Caretaker Vai Warden says the llamas are extremely calm, gentle and non-aggressive. They don’t bite, kick, or spit (on humans).
Tours will include llama orientation, use of the llama obstacle course, rides for kids under 60 lbs, grooming, feeding the animals, and taking them for a walk.
The tours last an hour, and cost $ 2.00 per person, minimum $ 20.00. We can give discounts to groups of 20 or more.
Scheduling should be done at least 48 hours in advance for these guided tours. Call (801) 798-3559 and ask for Vai.
Alternatively, groups can come onto the property with bags of carrots and/or apples (best broken up or cut into slices) and feed the llamas without an appointment or any fees (or guide).
A buffet lunch and salad bar is open daily on the premises from 10 am until 7 pm.
