Shipping & Ordering
Because cheese is a perishable product, we take great care to package and ship our cheese in a manner
that guarantees freshness. For that reason, we offer UPS Ground shipping only during cool weather months.
During the hot months of May through October, we will only ship by UPS Next Day Air in order to guarantee
the safety and freshness of your cheese.
Almost All orders are shipped on Wed. Deliveries are only made on
weekdays. Due to the perishable nature of our cheddar, we use special insulation and gel ice as needed.
We try to ship orders on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to prevent our cheddar from sitting on a truck
over a weekend and to ensure safe delivery.
Shipping and Handling charges are based on total weight for each shipping address. Please check your
address carefully. We cannot extend our guarantee to orders for which we are given an incorrect delivery
address. An additional charge may be incurred if the address is corrected and delivery made. Ballard
