Please note that we offer these dates as a cost saving measure for our customers. We do not offer mid-week or individual delivery options due to the volume of orders and our schedule outside of the farm.

Sometimes, due to nature and its many facets, the plant that you’ve ordered may be unavailable. If 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 contact@wintercovefarm.com or call us at 207-852-9088.m

We ship via USPS Priority Mail and UPS based on best timing and pricing, we do prioritize UPS since USPS has started instituting a large package surcharge of at least $15 per box.

Shipping Information:

  • We start shipping the middle of April.
  • Orders go out based on date received.
  • If you are far north, we will monitor the weather and ship later for you.
  • In order to ensure that we are able to focus on shipping, please email us with any questions after April 5th.

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at contact@wintercovefarm.com or call us at 207-852-9088.

We are set to do one-on-one pick-ups this year. In fact, due to the issues we have had with USPS not guaranteeing their delivery of Priority mail, we ask that you do schedule a pick-up location date when ordering if possible. 

If you are not local or cannot pick-up at one of our four locations, we will ship via USPS Priority mail or UPS depending on the best option. USPS has announced that they are, again, adding additional surcharges to large packages so we are shipping mainly by UPS.

We normally start shipping the middle of April. When we know we will be able to start deliver and shipping, we will be sending out an email and, if you are doing pick-up, a postcard. 

If you are picking up, the email and the postcard will have a link to our scheduling app so you can pick your preferred location, date, and time. These are usually arranged about 2 week prior to us knowing when we will be able to dig.

If you’re receive your order via shipping, there is nothing more you need to do as orders ship out in the order they are received, but do note that we do strive to ensure that southernly orders are shipped first and more northern orders shipped last. 

Your trees will be pruned between 3 and 4 feet unless it is an oversized tree (this doesn’t include the roots, just what’s above ground). This will allow us to ensure that the box ships faster and doesn’t get “lost” sitting in a USPS Plant Facility as happened too often in Spring 2020. 

THESE RATES ARE INCREASING, AGAIN, IN 2022. For example, a 48″x8″x8″ box is a calculated 19# box; a 72″x8″x8″ box is calculated at 28 pounds. In 2020, that shipping cost ranged from $15.49 to $61.54. As of January 1st, the cost will range from $22.30 to $99 and this doesn’t include any packaging costs.

Pick-ups will be at these locations:

Marshfield, MA – Sunday, April 24th

Mid Massachusetts (Worcester area) – Varies, Click Here for More Info

Sterling, CT – Saturday, April 16th

Winterport, ME – Friday, April 22nd and Saturday, April 23rd

Once you’ve placed your order, you will receive a confirmation email and the scheduling link will be sent at the beginning of April. If you do not receive an email, please let us know asap!

If you need your trees shipped, 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.

The new USPS shipping costs  have increase, again, in 2022, we are only charging a single box rate. 

The more trees you order, the lower the shipping costs per tree. If you have questions regarding shipping, feel free to drop us an email.

Sometimes, due to nature and its 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 contact@wintercovefarm.com or call us at 207-852-9088.
