Shipping cost is at a flat rate of $6.99-$12.99 per address*, depending upon whether the destination is in the Northeast ($6.99), Southeast ($9.99), Northwest ($9.99) or Southwest ($12.99), with a $34.95 order-minimum per address.
Orders for less than $34.95 have a shipping charge of $14.99.
* Please note that in warm climates (and during warm months) shipping prices include an additional $10.00 surcharge for an insulated shipper and ice. Consequently, the shipping charge in the Southeast will typically total $19.99, and in the Southwest will typically total $22.99. Our shipping system designates warm areas by State, so if you do not think that an insulated shipper and ice are needed for your cheese to arrive in good condition, you can instruct us accordingly, by using the "Comments" section of the online order form, or by calling us at (802)-259-2340, and we will ship without the icing and give you a $10 refund for the insulated shipper charge.
In the summer months it may be too hot to ship cheese immediately, and we may need to hold the shipment until temperatures come down to a level that makes shipment feasible. Some areas may simply be to hot to ship to, at least for our usual 2-3 day shipping window, and we will remove those destinations from our shipping system during these times.
We ship USPS, UPS and FedEx. Our goal is to deliver your cheese with no more than 3 days of transit time.
For cheese orders being shipped to the eastern half of the United States, we will normally ship by ground on the first Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday after your order is processed (allow 24 hours after placing your order for us to process it). You should have your cheese by Saturday of the week in which we ship it. During the holiday period we may ship any weekday, depending upon destination and carrier.
Alternative Shipping Arrangements / International Shipping:
Please call us (800.263.2606) for alternative delivery arrangements, such as more expedited shipping. We generally cannot ship to international destinations due to the uncertainty of cheese being held up in customs.
