Terms of Ordering for 2019 - Online ordering for 2019 is now CLOSED!

We are running very late this year and most varieties might not be ready till June.

This year we will be shipping some of our slips in the old traditional style by pulling and leaving some of the roots intact. Short slips will be sent intact, longer slips will be cut back.  We will also use the newer and accepted practice adopted by universities and large commercial growers by supplying “cuts”.  This is where the slips are cut off at soil level and shipped without roots and some of the leaves also removed.  It adds an extra layer of disease control and gets the slips into a more desired size for shipping and reduces stress. They are also packed rather dry, so will be wilted and possibly yellowed. The cuts will root very fast after being planted and kept moist/wet for a few days.  Some of them might look like they are inches from death to the unknowledgeable gardener when they arrive, but will spring back to life faster. All they need is a healthy stem. Eventually we will move entirely to cuts.

If you have a question, please email us. DuckCreekFarms@aol.com.  If you don’t hear back in a reasonable time, please email again. We had problems getting all orders with our server last year and are changing to a faster and better internet service. Hopefully this will elevate “missed” orders this year.  We can’t answer phone calls or take phone orders.  Thanks for understanding.

MINIMUM ORDER is $19.95 not including shipping, a surcharge will be added if the order does not meet the minimum.

Shipping is $12.80 per order for 2019!

We are running very late this year and most varieties might not be ready till June.
Our Plant Guarantee is that we will send the best slips possible, but will not be liable for damages other than the cost of the slips.
By placing an order with Duck Creek Farms, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to our terms.8

Please do not request a shipment date until your soil temperatures are consistently in the 60’s for an extended period. Your state cooperative extension service can provide those dates. This is typically about 4 weeks after your average frost free date. And definitely when the night time lows are in the 60’s for an extended amount of time

Due to the ongoing colder than normal Springs we have been experiencing the past few years, we are delaying shipping a week for 2019 expecting the “New Normal” trend to continue. 

Our last shipping will be the week of June 17, 2019.  We typically plant our stock after the bulk of the shipping season is over. 

We ship Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for instate addresses,

We have indicated some of the Varieties that are sometimes slow slippers, so if you order those varieties, don’t expect early shipment.  EARLY IS ANYTIME IN MAY.  PLEASE, if you must have your slips earlier, and cannot take a delay in shipments, please order from someone that can guarantee earlier shipment. We appreciate your business, but we want you to be happy.

We ship USPS Priority Mail.  It comes with automatic $50.00 insurance. If you have problems and need to file a claim consult your Post Master. Most packages should arrive in 2 to 3 days. Some areas of the US have very inefficient postal service and might take longer. Our Plant Guarantee is that we will send the best slips possible, but will not be liable for damages other than the cost of the slips.

By placing an order with Duck Creek Farms, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to our terms.
