Frequently Asked Questions
How much is shipping?
We guarantee delivery within two business days following the 'ship date' you select at checkout. We ship Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday via UPS 2nd-Day Air and Ground, according to where you live. UPS makes deliveries for us Mon - Fri. Any orders received after Wednesday will ship the following Monday unless you specify a different 'ship date' at checkout.

What is the best day to ship a gift?
Monday and Tuesday are the very best days to ship because these days allow for the occasional uncontrollable delay in transit time with UPS due to inclement weather conditions.
How soon will my order be shipped during the holidays?
Your order will ship in most cases the day you specify. Orders placed for holiday delivery will ship on Monday, two weeks prior to the holiday unless you specify otherwise. This schedule assures prompt delivery and also informs the recipient of your gift so they can make holiday meal plans.
How do you ship your products?
Our products are individually vacuum packed and quick frozen. All meats are shipped in a reusable insulated cooler, packed with a freezer pack or dry ice. The insulated cooler is then put into a holiday gift box for further insulation and protection.
