Potatoes, Onions and Exotics Shipping
All orders under 300 lbs ship via FedEx or USPS.
For orders 300 lbs or more, we offer delivery by freight truck. This
option can save you oodles of dough, but it’s not as simple as
shipping with FedEx. Before you ship by truck, please review the
list below to make sure you and your site can meet the requirements. For
Your road and driveway can accommodate an 18-wheeler (53'
box) ideally with room to turn around. We strongly
discourage you from expecting to unload at the side of the road.
Some drivers may accommodate this request, but they’re not
obliged to and their willingness may come with additional handling
fees. If we incur unexpected charges related to delivery/receiving
logistics, we will pass them on to you.
We are shipping to a commercial or institutional address.
Residential freight customers should expect an additional
$65 charge (freight companies presume additional difficulty and time
for residential deliveries).
You must be present to accept the delivery. We ask
our carriers to contact you before delivery to arrange a delivery
appointment. Carriers will not deliver until they reach you and make
this appointment, so please have your phone handy once you receive
your shipping confirmation from us. Carriers will not (or should
not) deliver without you present to receive.
You are able to unload mechanically with a forklift or
tractor. The bottom of the truck bed delivering your
order will be 4’-5’ above the ground. If you need a liftgate to
lower the pallet from the truck to the ground, please let us know and we will add one for an
additional $85. We
strongly discourage you from expecting to unload by hand, even if
your order is small, even if you’ve done it before. Doing so
increases the likelihood the driver will charge additional handling
fees for waiting. If that happens, we will pass those fees on to
If your location is not suitable for receiving a freight delivery,
we’re happy to ship to a nearby commercial location. Hardware
stores are a popular choice, but anyone who regularly receives truck
deliveries would do. For this scenario, simply enter the address of your
receiving location as the shipping address at checkout and add the name,
phone number and receiving hours of your receiving location to the order
