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.

All orders that were meant to be delivered to the show will ship out for free on Monday. We hope everyone had a safe travel day in the weather to the show and makes it home safely at the end of the weekend!

All of New England and much of New York are still under snow so there may be some shipping delays due to the storm.

Survival - Large back on website

12/17/2014
by NEAFP Co

Survival - Large back on website Our first batch of Survival Socks - Size Large arrived yesterday and are in the process of being finished and labeled now. They are back on the website and can be ordered.

Socks on back order will begin shipping out this afternoon (12/17) in the order they were placed.

New orders placed today will begin shipping out Thursday, 12/18 in chronological order.

There is a very high demand for these socks and we will be working as fast as humanly possible to get them on their way to you. Please keep this in mind while placing your orders. As our initial shipment is limited, we may reduce the amount ordered for the next couple of days to ensure we can get these socks in as many farm's hands as possible. There are several more pallets on their way to us and our inventory will be back to normal by the beginning of next week.

 

Thank you very much and Happy Holidays!
