Covid Update (November 17, 2020):

Re: Annual Farm Open House and Christmas Boutique Opening

Farm Open House - Upon careful consideration, we have decided to cancel this year's Farm Open House. Safety and security of the public is of paramount concern to us and with the hundreds of visitors that attend our event each year, there is just no way to maintain the social distancing requirements to manage Covid risks effectively.

We'll be back next year though so mark your calendars for November 20-21, 2021!!

Christmas Alpaca Boutique - Each Christmas season we open a portion of our historical home as a seasonal boutique where the public can come to discover and purchase our beautiful alpaca items in person.  After much humming and hawing, we have decided that this year, it is best that we do not open our home-based boutique.  We will continue to operate our On-Line Store so the products you know and love can be ordered in this manner.

We recognize that some of our customers are not comfortable with on-line purchasing.  That is fine!  Please drop us an email or phone us with your order.  We can take credit card payments over the phone or etransfer payments through email.

For our local customers, we offer curbside pickup of your orders so you can save on the shipping charges.  Rather than placing your order through our website where shipping charges will automatically be applied, please call or email us your order and we will set up a mutually agreed upon appointment for pick-up (to ensure that I am here when you come).  Appointments for pick up are available Thursdays through Sundays.  As is the requirement in Niagara Region, please wear a face covering.

Shipping - We ship using Canada Post Expedited and we will endeavor to ship your order within 2 business days of receiving it.  Some orders of yarns or rovings may take a little longer.  Once your order is shipped, you will receive a tracking number so that you can monitor the status of shipping.  Please note that Canada Post is no longer offering guaranteed delivery standards due to new Covid protocols in their distribution centres.  Despite this, it has been our experience over the last several weeks that actual shipping times are quite excellent.  That may change as we get closer to Christmas.  The best advice is to shop well in advance of you needing your order.

Farm Visits - Because of this year's hiatus of our Farm Open House, we are using this time to embark on several long overdue home and farm renovations so we'll be back bigger and better than ever!  At this time, we are suspending private farm visits so that we can focus on the jobs at hand to get them finished before the snow flies. We appreciate your understanding!!

While we do not operate an on-farm store all year round, we do offer year round on-line sales of a wide selection of alpaca items, including alpaca yarn, alpaca socks, alpaca gloves, alpaca scarves, alpaca hats, and alpaca duvets.  Shop early for best selection as we have seen a surge in on-line sales this year.  For your convenience, our On-Line Store accepts payment with PayPal or a credit card.  (You do not need a PayPal account - we use PayPal as our financial transaction manager).  If you prefer to make payment with Interac E-Transfer or credit card over the phone, you may place your order through email or telephone.  We ship our items all over and offer curbside pick up.  Of course, if you live close by and you prefer to look at our merchandise in person, please call ahead to make arrangements to ensure that someone is here to assist you.

Christmas is a fabulous time of the year to share your appreciation of all things alpaca with your loved ones.  Our seasonal alpaca store offers alpaca apparel such as alpaca gloves, alpaca hats, alpaca scarves and our ever popular alpaca socks!  Or treat yourself or a special person with something for the home such as an alpaca throw or alpaca duvet or even alpaca dryer balls.  We're always sourcing out new alpaca items and styles and developing our own product lines.  We have a few new goodies so be sure to stop in and have a look!  Knitters in your life would love to work with our alpaca yarns made from fleeces from our very own alpaca herd.  Yarn is either sold in individual balls or skeins or is teamed up with a custom Moore House pattern in a Paca Pac Knit Kit.

Please note that we accept orders and will ship anywhere in Canada.  Either email us or phone us at 905-892-8252 for details.

Twister - so sweet

Welcome to Moore House Fine Alpacas, an alpaca breeding farm located in picturesque Niagara, Ontario!


Our Beginnings...

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!


Moore House Alpaca YarnAlpaca 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.
