Saddleworth Llama Trekking and Animal Farm

Saddleworth Llama Trekking and Animal Farm

Higher Oxhey Farm in Denshaw, high on Saddleworth Moor, is home to Saddleworth Llama Trekking Centre and Animal Farm. On the farm you’ll find rare breed chickens, pigs, Herdwick sheep and lots of others including the very rare Mangalitza and Curly Coated pigs. Head out from the farm on a trek and you’ll walk side by side with the animals over the beautiful Saddleworth Moors. Treks can last from 2 – 5 hours and include a tour of the farm. Alternatively, tours of the Animal Farm can be booked independently (with the chance to include talks on the animals and hands-on activities). Treks include: 2 Hour Treks - This is a lovely easy walk around Oxhey Top and Heights Church in Delph. There are great views and lots of wildlife to see. Great for children or those who just want to experience walking a llama. Bring a picnic and have it on route or you are welcome to picnic at the farm.
