Volume Discount: If your order totals over $500 (before taxes and membership), you may deduct 2%; over $1,000 deduct 3%; over $2,500 deduct 4%. If you qualify for the discount and must pay Mass. Sales Tax (page two items only) figure the tax after calculating the discounted total on page 2.
Taxes: Only Massachusetts residents must pay a 6.25% sales tax on all of the items with item #s beginning with a 3 (ie 300-350).
However, you can claim exempt status if your business is not-for-profit (include copies of forms ST-5 and ST-2) or if you are a commercial farm (include a copy of Form ST-12, downloadable from www.mass.gov/dor). Sales tax will be charged unless exempt status documentation accompanies the order form.
Deliveries: We can offer full- pallet pricing for most of the minerals and fertilizers listed; prices for bulk loads of VCC compost & potting soils are already listed. To qualify for this pallet pricing, we require you to arrange for your own drop delivery at individual farms or other pre-designated sites. Please contact the Bulk Order Team to determine pallet pricing and drop shipping rates, which are to be included in your payment. If you are ordering VCC slings only, delivery charge is $92 per sling bag, and you can add it on the form without contacting the coordinator. You are responsible for offloading pallets with a pallet jack, fork lift, tractor, or equivalent equipment. If you require hand offloading/lift gate, an additional lift gate fee ($65) will apply.
Certified organic growers who buy products through this order are still responsible for their own documentation. In the case of non-organically grown cover crop seed, onion sets, and shallots, you must demonstrate organic sources were unavailable. Contact Baystate Organic Certifiers (or your local certifier) directly, firstname.lastname@example.org or 774-872-5544, with any questions.
Refunds: If any product problems arise, contact the bulk order coordinator immediately. All refunds will be issued after tuber distribution in April. NO refunds will be issued after May 1. Refund amounts under $5 will be donated to NOFA/Mass, unless requested otherwise by phone or email.
