Shipping Perishable Items

Many of our food items (such as lefse, breads, cheeses, certain fish products) are considered perishable and are labeled as such in their product description.  Some perishable food orders need to be shipped on Mondays to avoid delays in transit over the weekend.  Orders that are placed on a Monday or Tuesday may not be shipped until the following week, as they can take a couple days to process.  We offer freezer packs and insulated containers for an extra charge.  Please call or email  with any questions.

Backordered Items  

Most backordered items are back in-stock within 1-4 weeks, but some may take longer.

Our Backorder Policies:
~ We will hold any in-stock items and ship the order complete as soon as we are able to. We will get in touch if any backorders will take significantly longer than 4 weeks.
~ We are always able to send orders in multiple shipments, although this sometimes requires an additional charge. If you would like us to send the in-stock items right away you can let us know using the "Order Comment" box when checking out. If we need to charge more for shipping, we will ALWAYS confirm with you before doing so.
~ You will be charged in full when the order is placed.  We can refund for unshipped backordered items at any time if you'd prefer.
