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 Canadian orders. And there is a reason. There are too many cancellations after finding out 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 $7.25. $5, $2, $1 and forever stamps. I prefer $5 and $2 stamps. If that is too hard, as in the case of  Canadian 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 both dried milk kefir grains and 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 with everyone else's dried milk kefir grains, mine were  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  Canadian shipments are sent  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.

USA Customers:

  • Fresh Milk Kefir Grains           $15 plus $8 shipping      $23 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 $8 shipping      $23 total You get a heart, pie, or round scoby, my choice
  • Fresh Water Grains                 $15 plus $8 shipping       $23 total You get 1/4 cup
  • You may order two or three fresh cultures in any combination, for the same $8 shipping charge. Two kombucha cultures will not fit however.
  • One  culture would cost $23; two cultures $38 and three cultures $53. 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 if they have to go into the medium flat rate box.
  • 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. The small package is all most people really need.

  • Cost for the Tiny Micro Green Kit is $15 including shipping. I can fit both the kit and a package of kefir grains in the same box, in which case shipping will be free for your milk kefir grains. You save $8.  However, Everything may not fit in the small flat rate box depending on what else is in your order. For example a kombucha culture will be too bulky. When you order the Tiny Micro Green Kit, and if your order has to go into the medium flat rate box, I will only charge you $7 instead of $14 for shipping.
  • Canadian orders:
  • 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 $27 shipping to  Canada and as much as $36 shipping to an overseas country. 

  • Please note: I am not shipping overseas at this time. The package does not always reach the destination and I am not willing to take that shipping fee loss any more.  I'm sure you understand.
  • 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
