J6 Vinca Punch 3-31-16We are trying out a new way to get your plants to you…drones!  This is a very exciting time. And, with the ever increasing costs and challenges in the trucking industry, the cost of drone delivery is nearly equal to the cost of standard freight.  Currently, the increase is only a few hundred dollars per tray, but we do expect that to decrease in the near future.  With the rules governed by the Federal Aviation Administration, we are only able to drone deliver within a 300 mile radius at this time, and not within 5 miles of an airport or government building…also not within 5 miles of military bases, parks, schools, stadiums, power lines, people, etc.  We, at Parks Brothers Farm, are looking into the future and hope you are with us!  Just call your salesperson and have them send a release form for you to sign to receive drone delivery on your next shipment.  Here are pictures of some of the many beautiful plants you can have a drone bring to you on April Fools Day.
