NEAFP's launching a Farm Store Locator!


Each year NEAFP receives 1,000's of inquiries from people across the country looking for our finished products at the retail level so this is a great way to promote your store and drive business to your doorstep.

We plan to launch the store locator this Fall and are now collecting registrations for farms and shops looking to be listed.
Register for the Store Locator!


NEAFP Site Upgrade

On Sunday June 26th we will be shutting down the online store to perform a HUGE upgrade on our website. We expect the website to be down a total of 6 to 8 hours and back up and running Monday June 27th.

All user accounts & order history will be transferring over but the one thing we may lose in the process is everyone's current saved shopping carts. If you've been building an ongoing order over the last few weeks that you don't want to lose we encourage you to checkout by June 24th.

Thank you for your patience during this down time. We look forward to sharing the new website with you once it launches!


NEAFP's Annual 4th of July Summer Break


NEAFP will be closing down for our annual summer break during the week of 4th of July.
 
Our mill and office will be closed Friday July 1st and re-open on Monday July 11th.

If you have time sensitive orders for upcoming events we encourage you to get them in before our Summer Break.

All orders placed during break will start being processed in the order they were placed on Monday July 11th.

We're excited for this week off to recharge our batteries and get ready to hit the ground running for the fast approaching Fall and Winter months!
