NEAOBA members - If you would like to participate in the holiday farm tour and have us assist you in promoting your farm and the products you offer then please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide us with your farm name, address, website, and hours of operation for those weekends. We'll put your farm on the map. NEAOBA will also be providing templates of media alerts and press releases that you can modify with your farm information to promote the Farm Tour. We will also provide a handy step by step guide on how to identify your local media outlets so that you can send out your releases.

About Our Associate Members and Member Farms -
NEAOBA members feel passionately that their alpacas are like nothing else on earth — inquisitive and gentle creatures that provide the most luxurious of natural fiber, as well as a solid business investment.
There are no finer quality alpacas than right here in New England, which, with its family farm tradition, ideal climate, and outstanding alpaca bloodlines and strong regional association (NEAOBA), make New England the perfect place to
buy and raise alpacas.
Just one touch...and you may fall in love with alpacas too!
