Unlike cows, goats and other ruminants with four stomachs, alpacas are pseudo-ruminants with three stomach chambers. They eat up to two kilograms of hay and grass a day, which, through a unique digestive process lasting over 65 hours, produces the purest and most prolific manure of any animal species in the form of black droppings. In Peru, the country of origin of alpacas, these are sometimes called Oro Negro: Black Gold. They owe this nickname to their safe and powerful effect as a fertiliser.
Moreover, it is the only odourless manure, so it is free of flies and insects and can be used perfectly at home or in your garden without any unpleasant scents. We manually filter these droppings – which we have named Alcaca Oro Negro – so that they no longer contain any stones, weeds or sand and offer them in small and large quantities: from a mini bag of 125 grams to large orders of hundreds of kilograms.
