Shipping Charges

Our product prices do not include shipping costs. We ship our products via UPS and FedEx. Due to the perishability of our products, we recommend using UPS/FedEx overnight during hot weather. Ground Service is usually sufficient when packages are being sent to states that border Wisconsin….provided that the weather is not too HOT. We do not ship to any other countries other than the United States.

Packaging, Handling Charges & Porch Piracy

We have a $5.00 handling charge per package sent. This charge covers all packing materials and labor needed to process each order. This charge is ALREADY INCLUDED in each shipping cost.

If your order is traveling far and you would like to insure product quality and freshness, we recommend that you add one or more ice packs to your order.

If you wish to protect your shipment from PORCH PIRACY, we strongly recommend that you Require Signature Upon Delivery.  We cannot be held responsible for packages that are stolen that did not have a signature required.  If you do not wish to pay for the extra security, we highly recommend shipping to a business or to a neighbor who will be home if you are unsure of the neighborhood.  

Ordering Info

Because we are shipping perishables, we use Monday and Tuesday as our primary shipping days. This allows extra time for your package to arrive before the weekend, as UPS does not normally deliver on Saturday or Sunday. If a Saturday delivery is needed use FedEx home delivery as they do deliver on Saturdays. Shipping requests for Wednesday or Thursday may require additional UPS/FedEx Air Service charges depending on destination and weather conditions.

Be sure to ORDER EARLY during the holiday season! Online orders will be processed as quickly as possible. If sending to more than one address, a separate order must be placed for each one. You may also fax multiple orders to us at 608-846-4793. Please be sure your addresses are current.UPS and FedEx will not deliver to a P.O. Box. We need a physical street address and house number. If the package is to be delivered to a rural route, please add the name of the road and include a phone number. We cannot be responsible for shipping delays or for non-delivery when the address given to us is incorrect or incomplete.

Bulk Cheese Cuts

We cut all of our bulk cheese by hand. We get as close as possible to the weight ordered. All bulk cheese cuts are approximate.
