NEW LOWER SHIPPING RATES for the Winter Months!
NEW feature! Enter your zip code and get the estimated ups charge for your zone, before you place your order. Shipping is expensive, so be informed of your rate before the order is placed.
Minimize your shipping costs by maximizing your order. We charge for process & handling in addition to the UPS charge.
We use a variety of shipping boxes and sturdy styrofoam coolers for shipping. Ice packs are added also. We do not use dry ice, costs too much to use. It is better to ship faster to you. The meat is shrink wrapped and flash frozen, to lock in freshness, when it leaves the farm. The meat may be part thawed when it arrives or cool to the touch.

Each region in the US has a different flat rate. The shipping charge is calculated individually for each address entered. So you pay according to where you live.
