Shipping Details

Thank you so much for choosing to support your small-scale ecological farmer! Your business is important and valued at Naramata Seed Company.  By supporting this business you are supporting a continuation of ecological, small-scale, heirloom and open pollinated seed production to support seed and food security. 

This online shopping site is simple so we have to do some manual overrides if you would like us to ship it at the 'cheapest option' Please read and let us know your option via email or "special instructions to seller" just before hitting the checkout button.  If cheapest option is indicated (manually by you), you will be refunded the difference in shipping cost once we process your order. 


In the height of the seed purchasing season (January to May) we are providing very quick service. 

In the slow seed purchasing season (June to December) please be patient with us, as farming is the top priority.  Orders will be checked approximately every 1-2 weeks and then your package will be placed in the mail once we see the order.  Please be patient in the slow season and thank you so much for your support. 


Shipping Costs

  • Cheapest Option: Orders under 100g in Canada are $3 and up to 199g is $5. These are sent letter mail without tracking and the customer takes responsibility if the item gets lost in the mail. 
  • If you want tracking on on your package, you pay the price the website calculates. 
  • All orders over 200g automatically get sent sent as a parcel and have tracking built into the price shown on the website. 
  • All international orders will be sent at the price calculated on the website.  If you would like it to be sent with tracking, please choose the more expensive shipping option so we are able to pay for that cost. 


PLEASE INDICATE IF YOU WANT THE CHEAPEST OPTION IN THE "SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO SELLER" JUST BEFORE HITTING CHECKOUT.  We will provide you with a partial refund to reflect the difference in postal charges but Naramata Seed Company is not responsible for any item that may gets lost in the mail.
