Cynthia Kuhlmann of Sierra Rose Alpacas is now a fiber drop-off location for NEAFP!
Accepting fiber until October 17th, 2021 by appointment.
Sierra Rose Alpacas is located at:
15895 Greenhorn Rd.
Grass Valley, CA 95945.
Here are all the details:
We will accept your fiber, boxed by you and ready to ship, and put it on a pallet and ship to NEAFP.
The collection starts Sept. 20, 2021 and closes October 17, 2021.
This will save in shipping costs for all who participate: If you are attending Gold Country Gathering in Grass Valley, this is a good time to drop your ready-to-go boxed fleece at Sierra Rose Alpacas - just 15 min from the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Make an appointment for drop-off!
WHAT MUST YOU DO?
2021 Update: Regional Collection Transportation Fee
To help offset growing transportation costs, we are implementing a $10 transportation fee per 50 lbs submitted using Regional Collection Points for 2021.
Fiber Transportation Fee Rate Example Table (based on incoming weight)
1 to 50 lbs = $10
51 to 100 lbs = $20
101 to 150 lbs = $30
151 to 200 lbs = $40
The transportation fee applies to incoming weight and will be invoiced to each farm once their fiber has been sorted through by NEAFP.
The transportation fee will help offset the growing costs of running the collections and give us the resources to expand them in the future.
The Fiber Transportation Fee is waived for all host farms running regional collections and fiber drop-offs.
We hope this helps you get motivated to get your clip out of your barn and into production!!
