FAQs

Do You Ship Nationwide?

We ship to all the contiguous 48 states in the US. At present, we cannot ship to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or P.O. Boxes.

 

Why is there a 6lb. minimum purchase?

For many online small businesses today, shipping fees are a major hurdle to try and navigate. We are no different. In our case, the 6 package minimum represented the most cost effective option from the major carriers (UPS, FedEx, USPS) and are proud to say our rates are among the lowest in the perishable industry.
