FARMER’S MARKET OPTION:

When choosing a farmer’s market option, any item purchased that week will be boxed and brought to the market during that time period. There may be times that we are unavailable for market depending on family and business obligations that will not allow us to make it on a certain date. In that case you will be notified via email or phone to choose another date, or your product will be brought to the next date available for market.

HOW DOES MY MEAT ARRIVE?

Your products should be frozen, partially frozen, or cool to the touch when you open the package. Partially thawed products can be re-frozen. WE STRIVE TO HAVE YOUR PRODUCT ARRIVE FROZEN, BUT THERE ARE INSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL IN TRANSIT THAT MAY PREVENT THIS.

We ship all orders in our custom insulated containers with biodegradable cotton liners and dry ice.

Packages may contain partially dissipated dry ice and/or gel packs. This is common in the shipping process. Avoid touching any remaining dry ice with bare skin. You may leave dry ice inside the cooler to evaporate or use gloves to remove and dispose of the ice in a well ventilated outdoor location, safely away from children and pets.
