Selecting your Products
If you are unfamiliar with buying artisan cheese, please be aware that some of the products we send you will have a variety of molds growing on the rind. We find that these molds add character to the cheese in terms of looks, texture and taste. If you happen to be put off by the rind, simply don’t eat it and enjoy the heart of the cheese.

Weighed Items
If you’ve ordered a weighed item from us such as cheese or meat, please note that we hand-cut to your order and as a result there will often be some variation in weight – some pieces might be a bit under the weight you ordered and others might be a bit over – it tends to work out on balance.

We offer UPS Overnight, 2 Day, and Ground Shipping. Although we ship all perishable products packed with cold packs, we always recommend 2 day or Overnight shipping to ensure your product arrives in good condition.
