King of the Barn

Did you know that our llama, King Duke, loves bananas? He likes other treats too, like snap peas, apples, grapes and greens, but bananas are his all time favorite. Every evening when we say good night to the animals, King runs to us and looks deeply into our eyes asking for his treat. How can we say no to that face? So King gets a bedtime banana every night. Next time you come out on a Sunday or for a private tour and want to bring a gift for King, definitely make it an organic banana. The goats and sheep love them too!
