Shipping & Pick-Up Information

This year our shipping containers will be different! If you’ve purchased from us in the past, you know we have used boxes filled with plastic and wood shavings to keep the trees safe. However, we have always hated the resources these require to create and the amount of plastic we used.  

We have spent months researching and experimenting with different options and we’re happy to say that we believe we have found a way to:

  • utilize natural products that require less energy and resources
  • reduce the plastic to a small amount of a recycled plastic item
  • save box sizes so that our shipping prices did not have to rise as much as USPS had shocked us with.

We have two options for getting your plants and trees, first is local pick-up and second is shipping.

For Nursery Pickups:

  • We are located at 31 Cove Road, Winterport, Maine 04496, 207-478-8759.
  • Plants will usually start shipping at the end of April and we will schedule our Tree Sale & Pick-up at this time too.

  • Our dates this year will be Thursday, Friday, and Saturday through May 17th.

  • We will be available for pickup on these dates as follows: thursday and friday from 2 to 4 pm and saturday from 12 to 5 pm.  
Once you’ve placed your order, you will receive a confirmation email with the scheduling link on it. If you do not, please let us know asap!

The nursery is our home too, we ask that you do please email us at contact@wintercovefarm. or call us at 207-478-8759 to pick up outside these hours

For USPS Shipping, you will be notified by email when your order is shipped by supplying your email address.

Please put different shipping addresses, special instructions, etc in the space provided during checkout.

Shipping is automatically calculated for your zip code on the checkout page. We work on making the shipping fair and reasonable; however, due to the size of much of our stock, we are subject to oversized rates.

By purchasing items on our site, you agree and understand that we do our best to ship at  the best time for the trees, not our schedule.

We ship via USPS Priority Mail If the variety you order is not available, we will contact you to find out if you’d prefer a replacement or credit.

The new USPS shipping costs  have increase in 2020, we can fit up to 4 trees per box which ships priority for $32 to $77 per box depending on what shipping zone you are in. If you have questions regarding shipping, feel free to drop us an email.

Sometimes, due to nature and it’s many faces, the plant that you’ve ordered may be unavailable. In this happens, we can substitute a similar variety for you or give you a refund. We will contact you as soon as we know this and give you the choice as to which option you’d prefer.

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at or call us at 207-478-8759.
