Save on Shipping of your Potatoes and Onion sets with Depot Pickup!
We can ship full pallets of goods at much lower per-pound rates than UPS packages, but few customers order hundreds of pounds at a time. We now have farms and storefronts throughout the Northeast lined up to accept monthly pallet shipments of OGS goods, potatoes and onion sets so our customers can pick up their orders close to home at shipping costs up to 80% lower than UPS rates. For specific rates, see the depot shipping chart.
- Potatoes and onion sets ship to depots in April only. Each depot has a designated week to receive shipments. Ginger and turmeric will be shipped in early March directly to the shipping address that you provide, for no additional charge. Sweet potato slips and onion plants will be shipped to you directly from our grower.
- Depot orders are accepted online only, as we need to communicate with depot customers electronically.
- Each depot has a monthly order deadline; orders are generally ready to pick up within two weeks of the order deadline. Your order will be stored inside and labeled clearly with your last name.
We currently have active depots in the following locations: CT (Simsbury, Woodbridge), MA (Buzzards Bay, Lanesborough), ME (Brunswick, Camden, Edmunds, Scarborough, Whitefield, York), NH (Warner), NJ (Asbury, Pennington), NY (Delmar, Nedrow, Oneonta), RI (Cranston, Little Compton), VT (East Dummerston, Manchester Ctr) .
Depot masters receive bulk pricing on OGS & Potatoes, Onions and Exotics products and a small commission on depot orders. If you can accept truck shipments and would like to be a depot master, contact Alice: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are actively seeking depots in the following areas: central MA, Montpelier-Burlington VT, and Buffalo NY.
