Every once in a while, I receive a press release so delightfully absurd it must be shared. Today is one of those days. Why? Because it is almost National Alpaca Farms Days!
Just a reminder that National Alpaca Farm Days will be here before you know it! Please contact me so that we can schedule a special (and timely) interview with some of our members. There are so many unique stories within the alpaca industry, including the birth of rare alpaca twins, a breeder who left working on Broadway to raise alpacas in Colorado, a certified therapy alpaca, and many, many more!
Now, the writer of this email can't possibly think that anyone at the Philadelphia Inquirer is going to write a single word about National Alpaca Farms Days. However, she might be crazy like a fox and hoping that someone like me will provide free publicity by mocking National Alpaca Farms Days on a blog like Blinq.
So here I go. Alpacas' win, my loss, who cares?
When: September 24th and 25th, 2011
Where: Participating alpaca farms and ranches throughout North America
Why: A great, free opportunity for the public to come meet alpacas and learn more about these inquisitive, unique animals, the luxury fiber they produce, and why the alpaca business is perfect for environmentally conscious individuals!
