Where do you ship?

How much does shipping cost? Do you have a free shipping option?

We do have a free shipping option. See below for our flat rate shipping breakdown:

  • (Orders of $50 - $299.99) $12.99 Flat Rate Ground Service (1-3 day)
  • (Orders of $300+) Free Ground Service (1-3 day)
  • $29.99 2-Day Air Express (2 days)
  • $65 Next-Day Air (1 day)

For Alaska and Hawaii, we can only offer a flat rate $75 shipping charge for 2nd Day Air service.

Why is your shipping so expensive? 

We are shipping a perishable good, involving dry ice, so our average shipping cost is $36. An average of $27 to FEDEX/UPS and an average of $9 for the box, the cooler liner, the dry ice, and the frozen gel packs. Because we are a small company, we do not receive the savings that larger companies receive from the big shipping companies.

Why would I pay extra for 2-Day Air Express or Next Day Air?

Our packaging has been tested for 74 hours and never surpassed an internal temperature of 29 degrees. That being said, product may start to partially thaw after the 48 hours mark. If you want to guarantee your product arrives frozen solid, especially to our East & West Coast & Warmer states, the premium shipping options may be for you. 

Another perk is if our small staff has an overwhelming number of orders to fulfill, 2-Day Air Express and Next Day Air will prioritize your order to the front of the list to guarantee your order will arrive on time for your event. 

Notes:

  • Next Day Air can only be shipped Monday-Thursday and 2-Day Air Express can only be shipped Monday-Wednesday. 
  • States that typically take 3-days to ship to include, but are not limited to - WA, OR, CA, NV, ID, MT, WY, UT, AZ, FL, NC, VA, WV, NY, NJ, CT, MA, VT, NH, ME, DE.

Once selected, your order will get dropped off at your door the next Friday. Orders placed after 4pm on Thursday will be delivered the following Friday. We ask you leave a functioning cooler with coolant on your porch for your order. Delivery hours range from 8am – 8pm.

What is Wagyu?
Wagyu beef is a breed of cattle known for their abundant intramuscular fat. This equates to marbling, which equates to delicious beef. Our cattle are raised on green pastures and given free choice to a corn-based ration to maximize marbling. We believe happy animals make the best finished product!

Why is Wagyu more expensive than other types of beef?
This is for two reasons. First, the animals are much more expensive to buy than commodity beef. Second, our animals are on feed for three times longer than traditional breeds. More feed equals a lot more money! We strive to keep our prices very competitive compared to other equal Wagyu websites.

How do I know when my package will ship?
UPS and FEDEX have different zones for shipping based on our Missouri location. For example, if you live in Arkansas, it can take either 1-day or 2-days for the order to get to you. Based on this, it will depend when we ship your order. If the Arkansas order is placed on Thursday, the order will not be shipped until Monday to ensure your order is not left in a warehouse to thaw over the weekend. If you are in a bind and need Wagyu beef stat, you can always choose our expedited shipping services.

Is my product safe to refreeze when it arrives? 

Yes! Even if the product arrives slight thawed it is perfectly safe to freeze. We recommend our product freeze no longer than 6 months. 

How long is my product safe in the refrigerator before eating?

Because our product is vacuum sealed it will be good for up up to 7 days. Hot Dogs, Brats and Summer Sausage are last between 30-60 days.
