We’ve taken great precautions to ensure that your order will arrive in the high quality that you deserve.
All perishable meat products are shipped frozen directly from the meat market producer on Mondays and Tuesdays only. Some orders may be shipped on Wednesdays in limited circumstances due to estimated transit times. This guarantees that the products will arrive in the freshest possible condition.
We ship all of our meats in re-useable insulated coolers with gel packs. Your meats will arrive cold within USDA guidelines, but probably not still frozen.
Please see our Shipping Information page for more details.
