Frequently Asked Questions

When will my order ship? Shipping dates vary depending on which items are in your cart. Orders containing fresh or frozen items ship on Monday or Tuesday to avoid weekend shipping delays. Orders containing only shelf stable pantry items or merchandise will ship Monday – Fridays. Orders with overnight shipping selected (some items require overnight shipping) will ship Monday – Thursday. 

What shipping company do you use? All products and packages are shipped via UPS, and tracking numbers are provided. Physical gift cards are sent through the USPS.

How are frozen items shipped? When shipping frozen items, it is common that they will thaw slightly in transit. All frozen items will be shipped with ice packs and insulated packaging to keep products cold through delivery. Some frozen items require overnight shipping to maintain product temperature and integrity. Upon arrival, either continue thawing in the refrigerator and cook within 5 days, or pop items back into the freezer immediately to enjoy later. Most items store well in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you have any issues or concerns, feel free to email

Can I change my shipping address? Yes. If the order has not yet shipped, contact us at to provide a new shipping address. If the order is already shipped, we recommend joining UPS MyChoice.

How do I properly dispose of the packaging? We strive to provide the highest quality and sustainable packaging. The Green Cell Foam inside the packages is the most environmentally sustainable and functional packaging material available. It is made from US-grown corn, and is certified compostable in backyard and industrial facilities and can even be dissolved in a sink for safe and easy disposal. This unique material combines exceptional cushioning and thermal insulating protection, while protecting the planet. The containers that our house made products are in are recyclable and made with previously recycled materials. 

Are your products and packaging maintaining sustainability standards?  All of our house made products are made from sustainably sourced products, using Asheville or North Carolina-local producers when possible. Sustainability is important to our company, and we are constantly updating and searching for products and producers that share our values and standards.
