Shipping & Tracking
Free shipping on orders over $75*
Orders over $75 will be shipped free unless they are also over 20 pounds, in which case, they will be charged regular shipping fees. Oversized dimensions do not ship for free. Live plants do not ship free. It is at Urban Farmer’s discretion if an item qualifies for free shipping. International orders do not qualify for free shipping.
Once your order ships you will receive an email with tracking information. If you don’t get this email within 2 days please check your order status here. If you have any more questions please send us a message.
All in-stock items usually ship in 1-2 business days after we receive the order. Customers will be notified of any backorders or delays.
Most orders are shipped USPS first class, priority and express. The cost of shipping is calculated by weight and shipping distance. An exact shipping cost will be given at checkout. Most orders under 1 pound ship for $2-5 dollars. Orders over 1 pound start at $7.00 and increase with weight.

International Shipping Timelines and Requirements
Phytosanitary certificates and seed inspections may be needed for international orders depending on the country. Every country is different and requires different testing for different seeds. Some require no testing at all.
Shipping USPS International: Cost will be determined by weight. Shipping time can vary but usually 6-10 business days.
Phytosanitary Certificates: $125.00 (2-3 business days). Minimum seed order of $250.00. Some countries require additional lab testing. See below for additional charges.
Seed Lab Testing: $70.00-200.00 per test (5-10 business days)
We do not have a minimum international order but the average cost for certificates and inspection per order is $175. So this can make smaller orders prohibitive. From initial ordering date the usual turnaround time is 10-15 business days before shipping.
We do not offer insurance or replacement for seized or lost goods during transit of international orders. We have no control once they leave our building. We will provide tracking and any necessary documents for international orders for seed. Any other additional documents are the customers responsibility.
