What is the Bulk Order program? 

This is a collective buying program for Baystate-approved, organically certifiable farm, garden, and lawn care products.   Products include compost; potting soil; fertilizers; mineral amendments; tools for the farm and garden; animal supplements; and tuber, allium, and cover crop seed.  The order is open every year during the month of January, from the 1st to the 31st.   Orders are delivered at the above sites in MA, RI, and CT in 2 rounds, during early March and April.  All items with the exception of tuber and allium seed are delivered in March. 

Who can participate?

NOFA members and non-members may participate. Whether you’re a small-scale gardener, large-scale commercial farmer, or anything in between, you can participate; there’s no minimum order.  Current NOFA members, or those who join or renew on the order form, will receive the price listed.  Non-members, please include an additional 10% to cover administrative fees.
