I'm a firm believer in gifting experiences instead of things, and this place in Waconia is going to be added to my regular gifting rotation. If you are looking for an awesome and memorable family outing this winter, why not hang out with some super fluffy and fun farm animals? I am all over this kind of thing.

Carlson's Loveable Llamas is located in Waconia, MN about an hour and a half south of the St. Cloud area. If you've ever wanted to spend a day with llamas, this is the place to do it. Here are some of the services they offer:

  • Birthday parties
  • Llama petting
  • Llama walking
  • Llama selfies
  • Llamas brought to your event
  • Llama kids camp
  • 4-H llama project opportunities
  • Llama therapy with lots of petting, hugging and walking.

While you are hanging with the llamas they even have a gift shop full of things made from llama fibers and even sell llama compost which has a really high nutrient value and makes great garden fertilizer.

You can even adopt a llama which gives you access to visit the llamas whenever you want during farm hours, walk, train, and groom your llama and give it treats.

Rick Carlson was known as the llama whisperer, was the man who started it all, but he has recently retired and his kids Ashley and Evan, are carrying on the fun at the family farm.

If you want to hang out at this unique farm, you can schedule your llama experience here.
