Everyone's getting busy with shearing season underway so May's NEAFP Note is going to be as short & sweet as we can possibly make it. We're packing up the truck & trailer to head to the PAOBA Breeders Showcase but before we depart we wanted to make two major announcements.
Today we are launching our first Alpaca Farm Survey focused on Branding & Marketing and would greatly appreciate it if everyone could take a moment to fill that out. It's only 17 questions and should take 3 to 4 minutes to complete.
Alpaca farms are on the ground level, educating their communities on alpaca and the products they produce & we're looking for your vital input to help guide future branding & marketing decisions.
We are also really excited to announce the opening of two new West Coast Regional Collection Points.
WASHINGTON Lone Tree Alpacas
Jack & Jackie Bruner will be running a NEAFP Fiber Collection from now until August 15th, 2015. Area farms should plan to utilize this collection point to get their fiber to NEAFP for FREE!

NEAFP is actively looking for more farms to become Regional Collection Points! We cover the shipping costs for collections with over 500 lbs so it's a great way for you to get your fiber to us for free while helping neighboring farms put their fiber to work.
