Dried Gourds

All prices in Canadian dollars

Northern Dipper Farm offers a large variety of both dried hard-shell gourds and the smaller versatile dried ornamental gourds.



We strive to provide our customers with the best gourds possible. Thick wall are important for carving, burning and painting. This is an example of a Tobacco Box gourd Northern Dipper provides.




Pricing: Due to the variables in sizes, we base prices on diameter for basket-type gourds and bottle-type gourds at $1/inch up to 12 inches. Gourds over 12 inches will be priced individually.

We at Northern Dipper take great pride in trying to match our gourds to your needs. In order to serve you better, may we suggest, when you order please let us know what you will be creating with your order. We can then choose the right gourds for your application.

A note on shipping:
Gourds tend to be light and bulky. As a result Canada Post most often rates shipping costs on volume and not weight. Shipping rates costing $40.00 and under will be shipped automatically. For shipping rates over $40.00 we will contact you for confirmation before processing orders.
