Located within the South Lakes area of the Lake District National Park and just a short drive from Lake Windermere, lies six acres of picturesque farmland otherwise known as South Barn, and which was acquired at auction by Rick Fallowfield and his wife Amanda in 2018.

Since purchasing the land and its 400-year-old barn, Rick, who is an engineer by trade, has been on a journey of discovery, developing the farm and farm buildings to accommodate six top pedigree alpacas, ready for breeding.

This has included the creation of an advanced, fully-functioning barn, as well as relevant feeding sheds and other essential shelters, which have all been constructed using lightweight roofing systems from Onduline Building Products.

‘’After we were able to obtain full planning for more movable structures, it was a no-brainer that Onduline sheeting would be used because it is so lightweight, so they can be easily repositioned or re-purposed if necessary.’’

Rick was also able to put any spare sheeting to good use, building a chicken shed, which houses 20 chickens to accompany the alpacas.
