Det skal I lave

Spend a couple of hours with alpacas on our organic hobby farm - where animals are family. Libby is the matriarch, Lizzy is her next in charge, and Chips and Salsa are their crias (and half-siblings) who were both born here at the farm in 2019.

We'll start out with a meet and greet with the alpacas, providing you with their favorite grain to feed to them. Most days, Chips is a fan of bodywork, getting all of the scratching and loving you can muster. She was handled quite extensively after her birth and is a fan of humans - often bumping noses with guests during her investigation of them.

Did you know that alpacas are huge fans of water? You'll be their favorite person when you turn on the hose at the barn to fill their kiddie pool and shower them until they are soaked through - and loving it! Don't be surprised if Polo, our 150-pound Pyrador farm dog tries to get in their pool, too.

We're happy to answer all of your questions about our hobby farm, alpacas and other animals we keep and raise. We have lived here for about a decade and the farm and animals teach us something new each day. You'll also have an opportunity to visit our historic red dairy barn for a peek at vintage and local goods or to grab some quick refreshment for yourself.

My husband and I are professionals and Airbnb Superhosts who also enjoy the challenge of hobby farming. We both grew up in and led lives in major cities like Philadelphia, Chicago and Denver. When our kids were young we moved to Viola, WI to offer them a different experience - one surrounded by nature and animals and all of the unpredictability that offers. We bought this hobby farm in 2011 and have kept the land organic while raising animals who compliment our land and lifestyle. The menagerie evolves over time, but tending, raising and even assisting in the birth of our alpacas is a treat. We have learned and benefitted much by welcoming them into our lives.

Her skal du være

Griff Run is a 13-acre organic hobby farm nestled in a private valley in the Driftless Region of southwest Wisconsin. We have nine buildings on the farm with some dating back to the late 1800s. We share the farm with four alpacas, three dogs, four barn cats, and about twenty chickens and heritage breed turkeys. Wildlife sightings such as deer, fox, coyote, owls, hawks, eagles, opossum and raccoons are a regular treat.

Something fun and out of the norm to do! Not every day you get to chill with some alpacas! Shawna was knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great time!

Great and unique experience in a beautiful setting with a warm and friendly host and her super cute alpaca pets! I really loved this experience and the way the alpacas were treated with respect and care. It was funny seeing them get in that pool and experience their individual personalities. The setting was so quiet, beautiful, and calming; even if you're not into alpacas, the drive and the beautiful farm they live on is worth the trip in and of itself. Thank you to Shawna and her friend April who manages the really cool vintage shop on the property as well. I highly recommend this experience!

We loved our alpaca experience! Our hosts were knowledgeable and super friendly. We had a lot of fun hanging out and learning more about alpacas. Beautiful farm. The barn shop was an added bonus.

We were expecting a great experience and we got it. Shawna and her daughter Holland were very welcoming and personable. The explanation of what to expect and how to interact with the alpacas was thorough and easy to understand. The alpacas are very cute and friendly and interacting with them, feeding them and spraying them with the hose (something they very much enjoy) was a lot of fun. The hosts were very attentive and happy to talk and answer all the questions we had. The farm is in the driftless area of Wisconsin so the rolling hills make a very picturesque setting for the farm and experience. I highly recommend the Alpaca Love experience to anyone who loves alpacas or who just wants to see an alpaca up close in a charming farmland setting.

This was such a great experience! Shawna and her daughter, Holland, were fantastic guides with these sweet animals, and we had so much fun getting to interact with the alpacas, and hear about their different personalities. The store had some incredible antiques, and was delightful to look around, and the surrounding area is gorgeous.

Went with my mother and 3 year old daughter to this amazing farm. We had a wonderful experience with the alpaca and chickens, plus just loved wandering around the farm. I think the best part was just meeting Shawna and her daughter, Holland. They were lovely ladies that opened up their farm to us! Loved that Shawna took photos for us so that we could be totally present while spending time with the alpacas.
