How to Purchase


We primarily sell wholesale and welcome enquiries from fertiliser companies, consultants, spreaders and farm suppliers.

Fertiliser companies - try a mix that includes HuMates and see your sales grow or try adding it to your range of products.

Retailers receive similar support to that received by franchisees. We provide the following to help you achieve sales:

  • Website
  • E-mail newsletter for clients
  • Presentation folders to help you explain HuMates
  • Advertising
  • Promotional items
  • Client presentations by HuMates
  • Trials (we encourage you to recommend clients for trials)
  • Research

And you need not store our products. We are happy for you to take orders and then deliver it directly to your clients, their fertiliser company or your company.

When you contact us we will discuss all your requirements and advise on the best retail pricing.

End Users

We also are pleased to receive enquiries from individual farmers, orchardists, horticulturalists and croppers.

If you are an individual we will ask who your normal supplier is and seek to organise your order through them. However, if necessary we can supply directly at the retail rate plus carriage.

We have found that companies like Ballance and Ravensdown are happy to mix HuMates with your usual fertiliser order.

If you have any queries about HuMates, please give our free phone number a call or send us an e-mail.

Delivery Times

To retailers, we cannot always arrange next day delivery due to fluctuations in demand and supply and would prefer several days’ notice. Of course, if you maintain a level of stock then you will be able to meet the immediate needs of your clients.

For end users, please allow 5 days for delivery although if you have an urgent request we may be able to help you. Deliveries can be made to your farm or fertiliser supplier, including Ballance and Ravensdown.
