Videos and Press About Our U.S. Mohair-Producing Farm and Business …

It’s one thing to talk about ourselves, but it’s another to have others discuss our operation and goals. This page features videos and articles about Pure American Naturals (PAN) and our interests.


This video shows what PAN is all about: People, Animals and Nature. From our rural farm and spinners come the luxurious fibers and eco friendly processing necessary to turn high-fashion designs into wearable clothing. We’re all American, from start to finish, and traceable through our unique QR labeling.

“Cauffman lives farm innovation” from American Agriculturist

Glen Cauffman has come full circle, from visionary farmer to Pure American Naturals (PAN) co-owner and master farmer. His efforts, innovations and love of agriculture were recognized in March 2013, when he was honored as part of the 80th class of Mid-Atlantic Master Farmers. Glen was recognized as a cash-grain and US Angora goat producer and entrepreneur. The 80th class speaks of Eastern Agriculture’s strong diversity, ingenuity, productivity and commitment to leadership service. Glen Cauffman is a true, American original, and this piece and honor is testament to that fact.
