Refund + Cancellation Policy

We have a 24 hour refund policy, which means you have 24 hours after receiving your item to request a refund. This does not include deposits placed on poultry or bee orders.

To be eligible for a refund, we must email us a picture of your concern. You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase. 

To start a refund request, you can contact us at forestcreekfarmhouse@gmail.com. If your refund request is accepted, we will refund your account fully for the cost of the item minus a 10% admin fee if the request takes place after 24 hours.

You can always contact us for any return questions at forestcreekfarmhouse@gmail.com.

Loss, Damages, and Issues 
Peonies: Please inspect your order upon reception and contact us within 24 hours if the peony root is damaged or if you receive the wrong variety, so that we can evaluate the issue and make it right.

Chicks/Poultry/Live Bees: If poultry or live bees die within 24 hours of pick up, you must notify us within that 24 hr time frame. We work hard to ensure the health of our birds and bees, but cannot control the situations they encounter once they leave our farm and care. We will fully refund you the cost of the bird or bees if reported within the 24 hour timeline. We also fully refund if you purchase a female chick and it turns out to be a rooster. 

Refunds
We will notify you once we’ve received your refund request email with picture of the root(s), bees, or poultry you are concerned about, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.

Planting, Bee, and Chick Care Recommendations

We recommend that you plant your peony roots within the first 48 hours of receiving them. This is best for the root, but will also allow you to identify any issues within the 24 hour time period. 

Rare breed chicks should be kept at the recommended temperature for age with fresh water in a secure location. It is recommended that you add water to chick starter for the first 2 weeks of life. 

Honey bee nucs should be installed into their hives within 48 hours of receiving them if weather permits. 

Order Cancellation Policy

Orders cancelled within 48 hours of placement will be fully refunded. All orders cancelled after 48 hours of the time of order placement will be charged a 10% cancellation fee based on the order total. There are no refunds on peony root orders cancelled after August 1st, 2021.
