CAN I SEND YOUR PRODUCTS AS A GIFT?

Yes! Our products make wonderful and tasty gifts. We offer a variety of gift boxes, OR you can create your own. During the checkout process you will be offered a space to include a greeting. We do not include any prices or invoices in our boxes. A word of caution: make sure your gift recipient is home to accept their perishable products. Many people go on vacation for birthdays and holidays – and even a long weekend is enough time for our goodies to spoil on their front steps. Contact your recipient and make sure they will be around to receive their gift. We will not replace gifts that are sent and not refrigerated in time. Otherwise, ship something non-perishable, like our T-shirts, or Salami Gift Box – delicious and shelf-stable! One other note, a “gift box” is shipped in an insulated box, not a decorative gift box.

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS PERISHABLE?

Yes. With the exception of our dry-cured salumi, all of our products are perishable. Our smoked fish will come labeled with its processed date and information regarding expiration. Your box will also include a yellow slip with information regarding Use and Care. Smoked fish needs to be consumed or frozen within 3 weeks. We generally do not recommend freezing our smoked fish as it negatively affects the texture. Our smoked meats need to be consumed or frozen within 1 week. Our smoked meats freeze well. Because many of our products are perishable, please open your Smokehaus package and refrigerate the contents right away – make the goodness last! We do not replace packages that have been received within a two-day window but have not been then refrigerated or frozen. This is also important for you kind souls who are considering sending a Smokehaus gift – give the lucky recipient a heads up that a delicious, perishable product is in their future.
