Shipping Information

We currently ship only once a week – on Tuesdays or Wednesdays depending on when our deliveries come in from our butcher shop. Orders placed before Tuesday or Wednesday at 12:00 pm E.S.T. will be included in that week’s shipment. All of our meat is shipped frozen and packaged in styrofoam containers with dry ice and frozen gel packs. We ship everything via UPS. If the delivery address is within a 200 mile radius of our store in Monkton, MD, you may choose  UPS Ground shipping. Due to the perishable nature of the product, however, if the delivery address is outside of that 200 mile radius, you must select either UPS 2nd Day Air or UPS Next Day Air.
