Does natural cheese require special packaging and shipping methods?
Natural cheese is a perishable product. At your local grocery store, it is kept in a refrigerated environment where the ambient temperature is a minimum of 0°C and maximum of +4°C. Therefore, the safe transportation of natural cheese requires the use of specialized, insulated cartons and ice packs. It is also critical that perishable items arrive at your door quickly so they can be stored in your refrigerator immediately upon delivery.

Are the ice packs and insulated carton reusable or recyclable?
Yes, the ice packs and insulated carton are reusable, and the cardboard shell of the shipping carton is recyclable. Please check with your local municipality regarding the recyclability of these items.

What is the delivery fee?
For orders that meet our minimum final value of $50 but are less than $79, we charge a flat shipping fee of $15 per order. For orders with a final value greater than $79, before shipping and taxes, we offer Free Shipping.

How do I know when my order will be delivered?
Please refer to our, “2021 Delivery Schedule” below to view our normal order and delivery schedule and our modified schedule for 2021 Holidays and special occasions.

How many delivery attempts will be made?
Due to the perishable nature of natural cheese, only one (1) delivery attempt will be made. Therefore, is it critical that someone is available to receive and refrigerate your order immediately upon receipt to maintain product quality, freshness and food safety.

What happens if I, or someone else, can’t be home to receive my package?
Please remember that we can only make one (1) delivery attempt due to the perishable nature of the product.If someone cannot be home to receive your order, the Driver may, at their sole discretion, “Safe Drop” the package. A, “safe drop” could be used if the package can be left unattended in a covered area, and will not pose a safety hazard by obstructing entrances, exits or walkways.

As per our Shipping Policy, a fee of $15 or more may be charged, at our sole discretion, for failed deliveries caused by factors or conditions outside of our control.

If I want the order delivered or safe-dropped to my back porch, how do I communicate this?
If you would like to request delivery to a side door, back door, back porch or other area of your shipping address, you can make this request by providing such direction during the check-out process. In Step 3 (Shipping Method), there is a comment box where such requests can be made. The safe execution of your request is at the sole discretion of the delivery agent.

How do you deliver to apartments, condominium buildings or commercial offices?
In the case of apartments, condominiums and commercial offices where the delivery cannot be made directly to you, deliveries can be made to a Concierge, security personnel or receptionist. Please ensure that the receiver is aware of the incoming delivery and requirement to immediately refrigerate your order upon receipt to maintain product quality, freshness and food safety. Please remember that we can only make one (1) delivery attempt due to the perishable nature of the product.

As per our Shipping Policy, a fee of $15 or more may be charged, at our sole discretion, for failed deliveries caused by factors or conditions outside of our control.
