The alpaca walking experience will start with an introduction to the alpacas in their yard, where they will come up to you and smell you as they get to know you. We will have a brief safety talk. You will then assist me as we get the alpacas into their field shelter where you will watch me gently handle each alpaca as I harness them ready for their walk. After that we are on our way, walking through our farm in stunning scenery with our delightful alpacas. Of course there will be photo opportunities en route. After the walk you will be offered tea/coffee and homemade cake in our guests' lounge with fabulous views over the farm, or of course out in the garden if you prefer.
My husband Bez is the 3rd generation to have farmed here at Stoop Farm and we have been married for 30 years so I have lived here a long time also. We farm over 900 sheep and early in 2019 we decided to buy 4 alpacas to offer a walking experience for visitors. Our farm is in a beautiful and peaceful location in the Peak District National Park and walking the alpacas here is a truly wonderful experience.
We will meet the alpacas in their field shelter where your guide will put their halters on ready for their walk.
