About Us

The Secret to Our Success?



Leslie, Jeff, Courtney, Cassie, Candice, Lily and Breanna along with a farm full of alpacas, their dog Molly, cats, chickens, and assorted other critters make up the Autumn Mist family. For more than 10 years,we have been enjoying the alpaca lifestyle by contributing to the care taking,boarding, quarantine, breeding and showing of our alpacas. More than 20,000 pounds of fiber have been processed through one of the longest running Belfast Mini- Mills in the country. Our love for alpacas and their fiber bring us much joy and we look forward to seeing what the next generation of Jorritsma children will bring to the industry.


Where has the time gone?  We look at this picture and are amazed that all Three of our older Girls are happily married and Courtney and Andrew have a beautiful daughter, Harper and Candice & Ryan are expecting a little boy in June! Getting ready to start our 16th year in the alpaca business and our 15th year in the Fiber processing business doesn't seem possible!


Jeff along with running the farm and fiber mill is the current President of the Empire Alpaca Association and the treasurer for MAPACA.  He really enjoys working to better the associations in a team effort.


The farm has really moved over to the "Agritourism" mode and is now offering educational tours and plan on growing more each year with a wider variety of animals and experiences for people to enjoy year after year.
