We ship perishables on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday with Fed Ex Overnight for next day delivery. All orders received after Wednesday will be shipped on the following Tuesday.

Please let us know what is your preferred delivery date and we will aim to ship so that it will be delivered on this date, however please keep in mind that once the package leaves our site the delivery is out of our control. You should select a delivery date and location so that someone is available to accept the package and then quickly refrigerate it. We do not require signatures but do ask that if you are expecting a package that you check often to see if it was delivered, the delivery person may not ring the doorbell. We do keep an eye for major storms and will not ship products during this time.

We have no hidden costs. We charge $4.95 handling fee for each order. This covers our usage of insulated bubble wrap, reusable ice packs and all other packaging materials and labor. We charge you our discounted shipping charges for the weight of your box and zip code.
