Absolutely! Your package's transit time will be NO MORE than 3 days. If your shipping destination has forecasted temperatures warmer than 60 degrees, we would recommend purchasing the cooler and ice pack ($3.99) which will keep the cheese fresh during transit. And keep in mind, our meat products do not need to be refrigerated until after you open them.
NO.....our meat does not require refrigeration until after you open it.
The "white grainy" textures on the outside of your Aged Cheddars are called Calcium Lactate Crystals, and they form naturally over the years within blocks of high-quality sharp cheddar. They are regarded by most as the best part of the cheese (our favorite part too). It will form on the outside of the cheese, and within the cheese itself. ENJOY it!
Unopened, our blocks of cheese will last about a year in the refrigerator (DO NOT FREEZE.) However, the aged cheddars will last FOREVER unopened in the refrigerator and continue to get BETTER in the years to come so it's cheaper to buy a 5-pack. Once the seal is broken, it will last about one month, depending on how well it is wrapped. For the cheese curds, we recommend you eat them or freeze them within 2 weeks. The meat typically has an expiration date of about 10 months from date you receive it. And keep in mind, the meat does not require refrigeration until after you open it.
If you would like to ship to more than one address, you will need to enter separate orders for EACH address.
In most cases, we do NOT recommend that you freeze the cheese. Because the block cheeses will last about a year in the refrigerator if kept in the original sealed package, we recommend that you just keep it in the refrigerator to maintain the quality. The ONLY cheese that reacts well to freezing is the cheese curds, which is very convenient considering the window of freshness with the curds is smaller compared to the block cheese.
NO....all of our products are gluten-free!
