CONTINUED: Standard JPI Associative Contracts (For One-Acre & Up)
Sign up by March 31st to receive AC discounts and benefits.
And help JPI to meet your biodynamic preparation needs.
Associative contracts hold an essential role in JPI’s preparation production and distribution. Over the past three years alone (since we moved to Floyd VA), JPI has produced and sold over 100,000 units of biodynamic preparations to over 2,500 practitioners of regenerative agricultural practices. This volume of service requires planning, and associative contracts help make this possible!
Associative contracts for JPI preparations are similar to the economic concept and associative relationship of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Biodynamic practitioners support the yearly work of JPI by planning ahead and contracting for their preparation orders (available at discounted rates for different acreage levels). And in return, JPI plans its preparation-making and distribution schedule in advance, thereby assuring that individuals and businesses with associative contracts will have the biodynamic preparation they need at requested spring and fall delivery dates.
The final due date for receiving an associative contract discount is March 31, 2017.
The 2017 Contract Form and Information Sheet for (Standard Associative Contracts and the new Beginner Pfeiffer Associative Contracts) are available at the bottom section of this webpage.
Please call our office (540-745-7030) with any questions you might have. JPI will work to meet both the preparation and financial needs of its customers including larger farm operations, market gardeners, or growers with special needs.
