The Oak Moor Alpaca Herd comprise of 10 boys, aged between 18months and 2 years. Let me introduce you to...

Stridor

He is our little pocket rocket, our smallest alpaca but certainly not shy, best friends with Kalou, they like nothing more than running around the paddocks trying to see who is the quickest.

Max

Jinx

Our gentle gent, calm and goes with the flow. He loves a good roll and a cuddle, Best friends with Max.

Hatchi

The cheeky one, and certainly the most distinctive, He is the mischief maker and will think nothing of removing hair bobbles or hats and even a cheeky nibble to let you know he's there.

Zorro

Zorro de Orro, Our stunning second brown alpaca of the herd, with eyes that makes your heart melt. He loves to be a part of the team..

Kalou

Our brown cuddly teddy bear. He is a very friendly boy, a bit of a character and loves to be by your side all the time. He loves to be the centre of attention. Kalou likes his food and loves nothing more than being fed by hand so he can take his time and enjoy every mouthful.

Uthred

Our lovely big cuddly boy who loves to chill and is happy chomping on the grass all day. He likes to think he is the leader, probably due to his name, but he is a real softy and always likes to make sure he has paid everyone some attention.

All of our alpacas have settled into life at Oak Moor Farm really well and are enjoying the views, the visitors and their neighbours … And the sheep!!! They can't wait to meet you.

Hello, let us introduce ourselves! 

We are a family of six, including Adrian, Clare, Fletcher, Montana and our parents, Keith and Lorraine.

During the middle of the pandemic, we all decided that we’d like to enjoy life a bit more, prioritise family, and take the chance for Clare and me to spend more time together.

So, with this in mind, we started the beginning of our new journey. In March 2021, we put our houses on the market, and surprisingly, within a short period, we had offers on both of our properties. That’s when the panic set in with the realisation that we still hadn’t found a new place that we could call home! 

Then one day, by pure chance, Keith, Lorraine and I were driving out and about, and we spotted a fresh For Sale board in a very attractive location. The farm and home we now reside in (Oakmoor Farm) had come for sale. Promptly, we arranged a viewing, and as soon as we set our eyes on this beautiful property, its location and the endless magnificent views, we instantly fell in love.

New Beginnings

I hurriedly called Clare excitedly to say, “I think I’ve found us a forever home!”

To my joy, once Clare had also viewed the property and the surrounding stunning countryside, she instantly felt the same about the property and its future potential.

Consequently, we made an offer on Oak Moor Farm and mutually agreed upon a price.

Our family were hugely excited to finally move in during the middle of winter in December 2021, but things began to get a little testing at this point!

Purely by bad luck, we soon discovered that we had decided to move in during the middle of the now famed weather system called ‘The Beast from the East!’ Consequently, we had no electricity supply for a week due to the weather conditions and electricity grid problems.

All this was on top of dealing with local snow drifts… What had we taken on!? Nevertheless, winter eventually passed, the nesting birds began to sing, budding trees and flowers popped, and the joy of Spring in the Peak District was finally here… Here’s to new beginnings!
