Just to the west of Mitzpe Ramon near the rim of the Ramon Crater is this farm, with its herd of 600 sweet-faced alpacas and llamas. Young and old get a kick out of feeding the animals, even if they receive the occasional spit in the face from these long-lashed creatures. Children weighing less than about 50 pounds can take a llama ride; horseback rides (some at night) and tours are available to all. You can also weave wool on a loom, purchase items at the local factory,
and the shearing festival, which takes place around Passover, is worth catching if you're here.
