Alpacas... Live the life... Live the luxury!
Welcome to Moore House Fine Alpacas, an alpaca breeding farm located in picturesque Niagara, Ontario!
A desire to end the hectic pace of the corporate lifestyle, coupled with wishing to spend more quality family time, gave rise to Moore House Fine Alpacas a number of years ago. We were smitten with alpacas at our first introduction and have never looked back since our alpaca adventures began. Alpacas, with their luxuriously soft fibre, endearing personalities, and undemanding care were the perfect choice for a small acreage like ours.
At Moore House, you'll enjoy a wide selection of reasonably priced huacaya double and single registered breeding stock , award winning alpacas, as well as fibre and hobby alpacas ideally suited for first-time purchasers, with the peace of mind that comes from dealing with a farm committed to integrity and breeding excellence. You will receive plenty of personal attention and mentoring that our small farm is noted for, both before and after sales. As huge believers in education, we regularly attend seminars and workshops about alpacas and readily share best practices and tips for success with our clients. Your success is our success!
Bloodlines We Offer...
We carry some of the finest genetics you can acquire, including champion bloodlines from CPeruvian Daniel, DPO Lexus, Victor's Vaccoyo, Alpamayo, Hemingway, Jolimont Peruvian Pauco, PPeruvian Guellermo, Batido, Peruvian Desperado, CPeruvian Timo, Peruvian Condor, and other high impact bloodlines. As each cria season comes to a close, we are delighted with the results of our breeding program. We invite you to browse our alpacas for sale and contact us if any of our quality alpacas catch your eye.
Our Approach to Alpaca Handling...
Moore House is a small alpaca farm that is big on quality. We make a point of never losing sight of our love for our alpacas. You can be confident that each of our alpacas is calm, approachable, and can lead well since we use Camelidynamics@ techniques for interacting with them. When you visit, you will see the benefits of our approach! Take a walk in our pasture and you are sure to find a girl or boy you just can't resist!
Alpaca Fibre Industry
At Moore House, we recognize that a strong alpaca fibre industry underpins the long term success of alpaca commerce and that alpaca breeding and the fibre industry are intimately linked.
Catherine has become known in alpaca circles as highly knowledgeable about alpaca fleece, particularly since embarking on the journey to become a fully certified Camelid Fibre Sorter/Grader through the certification program offered by Old's College, Alberta. As an apprentice Sorter/Grader, Catherine travels the country side to numerous alpaca farms during the shearing season to sort and grade fleeces for other alpaca owners.
We are excited that a growing number of people are becoming aware of the luxurious qualities of alpaca and are seeking out apparel and products for home that boast Canadian alpaca. As a person who enjoys engaging her "artsy" side through knitting, spinning, felting, dyeing, as well as designing, Catherine is happy to share her knowledge of fibre quality to prospective clients.
Please feel free to bookmark our site as we update it regularly to share our stories and adventures. You can gain information on our animals, services, and products for sale as well as general information on alpaca care and time-saving farm strategies.
Better yet, call us today to arrange a visit to our Niagara alpaca farm - we would love to introduce you to our alpacas!
