The cost of packing the order, padded mailers, labels, gas to PO, and postage exceed the shipping charges listed below. There are few categories like grains, corn, peas and beans for instance, where you may be charged an extra .15 for shipping per package. This is a fair way to bill only those that are purchasing items that cost a bit more to ship and keeping the basic shipping cost down for all.
We are in the process of implementing USPS "realtime shippign" which will tell you exactly how much your package will cost and gives you the option to either ship via Priority or First Class.
Prices are subject to change as the USPS frequently changes shipping amounts and charges.
*We offer shipping insurance. Once a package leaves our warehouse we do not have any control over it. Over 95% of the calls we get about lost packages were delivered to the neighbor for safe keeping by the postman. Please check with your neighbor before calling. We will do our best to track lost packages and remedy the situation. However, we will not be responsible for replacement if your package was not insured. If your package is lost and insured it will be replaced immediately.
*A few large books may ship separately with a $2.50 media mail charge.
*Large packages of seed such as 2oz packs are charged .15 per package.
* Bulk seed and wholesale vegetable seed orders will be charged based on actual weight.
*International orders: We do not issue phytosanitary certificates which are some times needed to ship for foreign countries. It cost us a great deal to have a certificate issued because the Agricultural Inspector (for a fee) must come out to inspect the shipment and the process involved is not cost effective for us. If you buy seed from us, have it shipped to a foreign country and it is rejected it will be at your own expense. We will not be responsible for rejected orders and you will not receive a refund. All foreign orders are shipped at you own risk. (Many times the shipment is destroyed or kept in unsuitable conditions for seeds so even if it is returned to us it can not be resold.)
