Wholesale Terms & Conditions
Terms & Conditions
By ordering from Big Picture Farm you agree to the following:
SHIPPING: All Prices are F.O.B. Big Picture Farm, Townshend, VT USA and the method and route of shipment are at Big Picture Farm's discretion.
SHELF LIFE: Our caramel is exquisite for the first month and a half, and still very good for the next month. This gives you a total of approximatley 10 weeks of goodness at room temperature (please avoid placing product in direct sunlight and/or storing them in spaces whose temperature and/or humidity fluctuate greatly over the course of a day or week!). Fresher caramel (1-8 weeks) is better, and if stored properly will not granularize. We go out of our way to offer low shipping costs so as to encourage customers to place smaller, more frequent orders to ensure that all customers are tasting the very best Big Picture Farm has to offer. We believe that a high-quality tasting experience will create more repeat customers and increase long-term repeat sales, for both Big Picture Farm and our retailers. Therefore we insist that customers place orders in the amount they believe they can sell in 4-6 weeks. Moreover, we agree to provide customers with "best by" stickers of at least 8-10 weeks from the date of receipt. Big Picture Farm will not replace or credit customers for product that has expired on the shelf.
TAXES: You are responsible for the payment of applicable federal, state, and local taxes unless an appropriate government tax exemption form is provided to Big Picture Farm in advance.
PAYMENT: Payment is due at the time of sale for all products, shipping and handling and applicable taxes, unless approved for Credit Terms. For customers on credit terms, all invoices are due within thirty (30) days of the invoice date unless otherwise stated. A service charge of one and one half percent (1.5% per month) may be assessed on delinquent invoices.
PRICE CHANGES: Big Picture Farm reserves the right to change its prices and charges for its products and services at its discretion.

Items may be added to processed orders, but additional product and shipping charges will apply. If items are cancelled from a processed order, a 20% restocking fee may apply. Because our product is perishable as stated above, WE CANNOT ACCEPT ANY RETURNS.
