Prices of all three cultures plus shipping rates

At we aim to fill your  order promptly and with high quality cultures. Your cultures will grow  and last forever with proper care. We are on the honor system here so we  do not need your money up front. That last part does not apply to overseas orders. And there is a reason. There are too many cancellations after they realize how much shipping is.

You need not wait very long before your cultures  arrive. We are shipping most of our orders on Monday and then again on Friday. Please do not  send any money until you hear back from us for the reason that we do not take checks, money  orders, credit cards, pay pal, Western Union and all the rest. Everyone  sends us cash paper money or postage stamps. For postage stamp payment,  I like $6.70 and $5 or $2 stamps. If that is too hard, as in the case of  Canadian and overseas orders, we also will accept an gift  card. When you are ready to order, fill out the form at the contact us  page and remember to include your name and address. That makes it  easy for me to copy and paste a label. Remember to put your full name  for the first line of your address. I will confirm your order by email  telling you how to pay and when I will be shipping. USPS tracking now  comes with all domestic priority mail, the only way we ship.

All three of our cultures come fresh now  (milk kefir grains, water grains and kombucha cultures). We have  discontinued selling dried water grains. The trouble with dried water  grains is the same as with dried milk kefir grains. They can lose their  growth factor. They still work, but may not grow.  Just as everyone else's dried milk kefir grains, mine are  also of inferior quality.  The drying process damages their growth  factor and it takes weeks to get a good tasting batch. All cultures come  with good instructions. All overseas and Canadian shipment will now be  by Global Priority Mail which should arrive within 7-10 days. Should...but can take up to three weeks. I know by experience that kefir grains can survive up to 6 weeks in the mail.

  • Fresh Milk Kefir Grains           $15 plus $7 shipping      $22 total You get 3 tablespoons, for two cups milk. They will double every two weeks so this is all you need
  • Fresh Kombucha cultures      $15 plus $7 shipping      $22 total You get a heart, pie, or round scoby, my choice
  • Fresh Water Grains                 $15 plus $7 shipping       $22 total You get 1/4 cup
  • You may order two or three fresh cultures in any combination, for the same $7 shipping charge.
  • One  culture would cost $22; two cultures $37 and three culture $52. You get  free shipping for any combination of four or more cultures. $60 for  four cultures, $75 for five, Except...if you order more than one scoby since they are bulky. In that case , your order would go into the next size box which is $14 shipping. I will give you a discount of $7 on bulky orders containing four or more packages of cultures.
  • Small package of two large fresh Milk Kefir Grains (about a teaspoon worth) $10 plus $7 shipping $17 total This  is enough to make between 1/4 and 1/2 cup kefir per day. When they grow  you get to make more or follow the accelerated method printed on the  label for more kefir immediately.
  • **For addresses outside the USA:
  • I do not offer the small  package of two large fresh Milk Kefir Grains because shipping is so high.  For $5 more you get 9  times as many.
  • Regular  size fresh Milk Kefir Grains (3 tablespoons) $15 plus $26 shipping to  Canada and as much as $36 shipping to an overseas country. This makes 2 cups of  kefir at first and more as they grow.
  • I can fit all three cultures, milk kefir grains, a kombucha culture, and water grains in the same box for the same shipping.
  • Shipping costs can be confusing so...
  • The best thing is to send me your order and I will do the math.
  • To submit your order please go to the home page and fill out the "contact us" box. Remember to include your full name and address when you are ready to order.Your name is part of the address. You will be surprised how many people do not write their first and last name  for the first line of the address. So I have to ask and another day  could go by before I get an answer and get back to you. You will speed  up your order and save me time if you include your address in full. Thanks, Marilyn
