Purchasing a Scythe in Person
If you are interested in buying a scythe, please contact us and arrange to come to the Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust for a discussion and to purchase.
When you purchase a scythe at the Trust, we will set the scythe up with you and give you basic tuition.
Equipment is also available for sale at the end of each scythe course. Course participants have the chance to buy a “Ready to Mow” blade at no extra charge, that has been prepared and edge peened by Philip. This service costs £10 outside of courses and is available either as part of a complete scythe kit, or just the blade.
Complete Scythe Kits can be ordered through our online shop for delivery. Our shop uses PayPal to take payments. You can either use your PayPal account if you have one, or you can pay with a credit/debit card for which you do not need a PayPal account.
Alternatively, select the manual checkout option to pay by cheque or bank transfer (details will be emailed to you when you check out).
This order form can also be used if your would rather order by email.
We can post to Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland – in general it costs £5 – £10 in addition to standard postage costs. Please select the appropriate postage option at the check out or contact us to order.
For carriage to other countries please contact us for a quote.
Parcel containing a snath, eg all scythe kits, are very long and so cost more to post. For this reason we have to make an additional post and packaging charge on top of our usual rates.
Order Value Postage and Packing
£0 – £38.00 £5.00
£38 – £99 £8.50
Additional postage for long parcels -£4.50 in addition to the standard p&p charge for the first scythe kit in an order.
On orders containing more then one kit – No additonal postage charge is made for 2nd and subsequent kits in the same order up to a maximum of four. For orders of four kits or more please contact me for a postage quote..
Most large parcels are sent via UPS. In the interest of saving van journeys, we try to arrange for parcel to be collected from us twice a week for delivery, usually Mondays and Thursdays. Orders need to be recieved a minimum of one day in advance of the collection days to allow time for packing. Orders with “Ready to Mow” blades may take longer to process, especially in the height ofthe summer when we are very busy.
Please allow 7 – 10 days for delivery from time of ordering (although it’s normally quicker then this). If you require your parcel quickly, please contact us and we will do our best to help you.
