It was brought to our attention late last night (February 6th) by phone call that there is a false actor posing as This Old Farm sending out spam emails. The email states that it is from This Old Farm, and that you have been set up as a new customer (the text of the email is copied below). The gentleman who alerted us to this received the email from info@WKNz.realancien.eu, but you may receive a similar email from a different email address. This email is spam and is not from us, do not open any attachments or links!
All email communication from This Old Farm (except for our newsletter) will come from an email address with the format “first name”@thisoldfarminc.com. For example, emails sent by Clayton (our order distribution manager) will be from firstname.lastname@example.org, emails sent by Jessica (the president) will be from email@example.com, and so on.
Should you receive any suspicious email claiming to be us, we encourage you to give us a call at 765-324-2161 to clarify if you have any questions. Though it’s certainly frustrating to have a false actor impersonating us, it gives us an opportunity to ensure you know the people here at This Old Farm who work hard to provide you with good food. The representatives from This Old Farm whom you are most likely to receive communication from are…
Clayton Rascoe (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Clayton manages our inventory and keeps track of orders amongst other things. You’re most likely to receive invoices and other order related information from him.
Cindy Suter (email@example.com)

Getting to talk to lots of people about lots of things and working closely with Clayton, you may receive emails on a variety of topics from Cindy including information about your order, answers to questions asked, or other miscellaneous topics.
Travis Hood (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Travis does his best to keep all our butchers busy by bringing in customers amongst other things. If you’ve brought livestock to us in the past, you are likely to receive communication from Travis asking about scheduling more livestock in the future.
Richard Byrer (email@example.com)
Richard is one of our newer members of the team! He has years of butcher experience he puts to work on the processing floor. When processing workload slows, he also conducts sales calls to try to keep us busy.
