Payment and Delivery

Purchasing a Scythe in Person

COVID-19 – Due to the current situation we are currently unable to offer our buy-in-person service. However our webshop is still open and taking orders for delivery and “Click and Collect”. See here for details.

Please contact us if you wish to 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.
We can accept payment by cash, cheque or card.

Equipment is also available for sale at the end of each scythe course. Course participants have the chance to buy a blade that has been prepared and edge peened by Philip at no extra charge, .

Mail Order

Complete Scythe Kits can be ordered through our online shop for delivery. Payment can be made by credit / debit card. Alternatively, you can opt to pay by bank transfer (details will be emailed to you when you check out).

If you would like to pay by cheque or PayPal, please contact us.

If you have any questions about a potential order please contact us by phone or email.


Postage to mainland UK is shown in the table, right.

Postage to remote postcodes (eg Highlands and Islands) is the same as mainland UK except for parcels containing a snath. These cost an additional £6.

Postage to Northern Ireland has increased markedly post Brexit. We are currently reviewing prices and we will try and keep them as low as possible. Currently Royal Mail parcels are the same as mainland UK but there is an additional cost of £6 on the postage of medium parcels (most blades) and £14 on parcels containing a snath.

We can post to Republic of Ireland and most of Europe. Please see here for more information.

For carriage to other countries please contact us for a quote.

Parcel containing a snath, eg all scythe kits, are very long. They cannot travel on the conveyor belts at the courier depots so we get charged an additional Manual Handling Fee. For this reason we have to make an additional post and packaging charge on top of our usual rates.

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 received 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 of the summer when we are very busy.


Very small


Medium (parcels inc blades)

Large (parcels including snaths)
