Cooperative Orders

Bulk Seed Potato Order: CLOSED

BULK SEED POTATO order is CLOSED.

Every year Cultivate KC organizes a combined order for Kansas City area growers. There are no certified organic seed potatoes available this year; all varieties are listed as Naturally Grown or Conventionally Grown on the order form.

Orders are due at Noon on Monday, November 15, 2021 with a minimum order of 50 pounds. Payment, in form of cash or check, will be collected at the time of pick up. Shipping costs will be added to the prices listed on form, but we won’t know the exact amount until we place the order.

Pickup will be in mid-March at Cultivate KC’s Juniper Gardens Training Farm. 

Email Semra, semra@cultivatekc.org, any questions. Varieties are shipped in 50lb increments so if we do not receive an adequate amount of any one variety or if potato available changes, Semra may contact you about a replacement.

Prices will not be finalized until quantity of each variety and shipping costs are known.

Sales Tax: 

  • If you are a farmer and will be selling the potatoes you grow then you must fill out the Agricultural Exemption Certificate upon pickup or email to Mark.
  • If you work with a non-profit, school or religious organization and hold a Tax Entity Exemption Certificate with the Kansas Department of Revenue, you must present a copy of your Tax Exempt Certificate and pay for your order with a company check in order to be tax exempt. Find the list of exempt entities here.
  • If you are a gardener growing for personal consumption, you must pay Wyandotte County Sales Tax of 9.125% upon pickup.

Pick up

As soon as we know the delivery date in March, we will schedule ONE or TWO days only for potato pickup. If you cannot attend, you must find a buddy to pick up your order. The pick up will be at the Juniper Gardens Training Farm, 100 Richmond Avenue, Kansas City, KS 66101.

Potatoes will be packaged in 50 pound bags, so if you order in smaller increments, please come prepared to sort, weigh and package your order. 

Additional notes

Bulk potatoes in 50 pound bags and as a result, we will have to aggregate our orders to 50 pound increments. We will do our best to make sure everybody gets all of their potatoes, but we may have to adjust orders to reach 50 pound increments. We will communicate with any growers that will be affected by this policy and do our best to make it work. Every year, there are some mistakes and changes, so please be flexible. You may get a last minute substitute for a specific variety, or sometimes a bag is inexplicably left off the truck when they head out. We will make sure that we handle things as best as possible from our end to minimize errors.
