Det skal I lave

Even before you enter the gate the Llamas will be checking you out, the goats will cry out a welcome. When you enter their corral you might be wary of their size, and you will be amazed at their speed as they run around to show off their long strides. After they run for you, we will show you how to hold the llama pellets in your hand as the llamas use their oddly grippy lips to pick up the pellets. The llamas love the pellets and they will take turns visiting each feeder.
Once they have eaten all the pellets, we spread some hay for the llamas to graze on and everything becomes peaceful and silent. You hear the wind in the trees, the call of the quail, the gentle sound of hay being mashed into cud. When you look up you notice you are surrounded by the desert, the Sawtooth and Joshua Tree mountains to the South, the ancient volcanic Black Mesa to the West, and Johnson valley stretching endlessly North.
Throughout this experience your hosts will educate you on all things llama, and snap pictures of you so you can share this magic with friends, family, and followers. Experience last about an hour. NOTE: you must be 18 yrs or older.
Other things to note
There may be up to 6 people participating in a feeding.

My husband, Sam, calls me the Llama Whisperer but in reality it has taken both our efforts over several years to teach these rescued then adopted llamas to trust humans again. Our expertise comes with 1000's of hours learning about our precious Llamas. Following their pack behaviors and working with them based on that knowledge, you could say they trained us.
An artist and Bay Area ex-patriot, I have been reborn as a docent of the desert. I built my own personal oasis rescue ranch, and I am a certified Coachella Valley Master Gardener. Breath taking views and a wealth of native flora and fauna are the art I cultivate now. I love my desert home, garden and animals, and my greatest joy is helping others see, know, and enjoy the desert and all her glory. NOTE: you must be 18 yrs or older.

Melissa and Sam thoughtfully introduced us to their llamas, goats, and sheep. We were able to pet and feed them and hear each animal's story. It was a fun experience, definitely would recommend!

This was 100% worth getting up at 6:30am for! Melissa went above and beyond to make sure everybody felt comfortable at all times and she knew so much about all the animals who are clearly well taken care of. We loved the llamas and baby goats the most but they were all adorable. We got some incredible photos as well! I will absolutely recommend this experience to anyone going to Yucca Valley!

Melissa and all her furry friends were a delight to visit. As many other reviewers have mentioned, Melissa is extremely knowledgable about the animals she so thoughtfully cares for. What I loved the most was her description of each one of the animals' personalities. You can really tell how much she cares for these animals through her descriptions of them. My boyfriend and I had such a fun time feeding, petting, and spending some good ol' fashion quality time with the animals!

Beautiful happy animals and Melissa is very knowledgeable. Loved meeting all the llamas and goats and sheep. Definitely made a friend with the baby llamas! Would love to visit her again next time I am in JT.

The llamas are all very sweet and the goats & sheep are tons of fun. We learned a lot about all the animals and Melissa was super nice and even gave us some tips on the best route to get to a grocery store & pizza place we had planned on going to afterwards and sent us off with some snacks & water. I would definitely highly recommend it to anyone who is even remotely interested in doing it.
