An alpaca farm will be holding its annual open day this weekend.
Visitors will be able to meet the herd at AzSu Alpacas, in Letton, near Dereham, and find out more about the unusual animals.
There will be alpaca walks and an obstacle course as well as tractor rides around the farm. Refreshments and a barbecue will be available.
Native to South America alpacas have been bred for their fleece for 6,000 years.
Alpaca fibre was used to make clothes for Incan royalty and was also popular during the Victorian era.
