Once in a Blue Moon
Once in a blue moon we have so many projects in orbit around us that the end of the month sneaks up before we have a moment to email the NEAFP Note. As farmers and small business owners, you slowly start measuring time by the season instead of by the week. The line between work and play becomes blurry, and time begins to fly while making hay in the sunshine. Over the last month we've collected over 10,300 lbs of U.S. Grown alpaca fiber from hundreds of farms spanning 27 states. A large portion of this fiber came directly from regional collections with the help of a handful of fiber whisperers from around the country.
A special THANK YOU goes out to the following alpaca farmers:
Linda Ley â€“ Parris Hill Farm
Liz Mitchko â€“ Whirlwind Ranch
David & Debbie McLeish â€“ Dreamland Alpacas
Deb Cilley â€“ Spring Pond Farm
Patty and Les Fuller â€“ Poplar Hill Alpacas
Earl and Millie Keene â€“ Keen and Queen Alpacas
We couldn't do it without you and want you to know you're very much appreciated.
While fiber has been moving in our direction from around the country, we've been busy at the mill cooking up some things of our own. Last year we began offering dyed products and we're happy to report our dye capabilities are officially up and running under our very own roof.
