What happens when a city boy meets a country girl at Stephen F. Austin State University in 1986? Well, they become best friends, move back to Houston, get married and raise two wonderful boys. Fast-forward 27 years and it’s time for a new adventure. We discovered alpacas and their incredible nature and we were hooked. While we breed & cultivate their fleece through Texas Trails Alpacas, we found the calming nature of the animals could have benefits for children (and adults!). That’s when we decided to share animals in our herd with a therapeutic nature.
By day, Walter is a Project Manager and commutes to the big city. Regina, a prior teacher, has been involved with education for more than 15 years. In the evening we put on our Sloggers, scoop poop and work with our animals while watching the sunset over our pasture.
Our younger son, Jared, attends college and helps with the farm duties.
Our older son, Weston, serves our country in the Navy.
We are also guided by the experience and knowledge of fellow Board member, Kathy D’Amico. Kathy, a parent of a child with Autism and a public school teacher, knows first hand of the needs of children with special needs. She participates on our Board by providing insights for programs and services.NOTICE: under Texas law (chapter 75a, Civil Practice and Remedies Code), an agritourism entity is not liable for any injury to, or death of, an agritourism participant resulting from an agritourism activity.
