Alligator hide farmers can’t sell their hides

Alligator hide leather farmers can\'t sell hides

I bet you thought I would never write another post here! No, I’m still around, just busy. Hope your summer is going well. I thought I’d share a news story with you I heard. Seems like with all the bad economy going on, people who farm alligators for their hides can’t sell them. I don’t mean they can’t sell them for much, I mean they can’t get ANYONE to take them!

The places that process them and make them into all those fancy alligator leather boots, wallets and purses just don’t have enough demand for them anymore. Even the big shots that buy the high end alligator leather items are cutting back. So it’s not surprising that the alligator purses and boots are the first to go!

There’s a lot of alligator farms around here in Florida. The guy in the picture above is one of them. He’s ready to kill his whole farm of alligators because it cost so much to feed and keep them. It’s just not worth it anymore. I imagine it will take a while before people start buying the high end products, and alligator leather is one of the top price items.

Once this guy gets rid of his gators he will freeze the hides and wait until the price picks back up. I guess only a few will come out of this good. You can read about it here: alligator hides not in demand. So see, even the CEO’s are cutting back, poor things! They will have to downgrade to cowhide like the rest of us. 😉
