And help JPI to meet your biodynamic preparation needs.
Please note that we have simplified the AC structure to one discount level regardless of the size of your operation.

Additionally, AC Partners are offered an annual consultation tailored to your specific needs and uses of the preparations with one of our educational professionals.

As with Steiner’s concept of associative economics, our Associative Contracts emphasize the development of a conscious coordination between producer and consumer through which we meet each other’s needs. In this modality, biodynamic practitioners contract to support the yearly work of JPI at the beginning of the season, while being rewarded for their investment with a reduced cost of purchase. This partnership helps us to plan our preparation-making and distribution schedule in advance while assuring that your biodynamic prep needs are met adequately and without delay.
The final due date for receiving an associative contract discount is March 31, 2018.
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.
