Our quality products are individually vacuum-sealed, packaged in attractive gift packaging, surrounded by enough dry ice or gel packs to keep them at the desired temperature during transit, and packed into our reusable, insulated freezer totes. These totes are then placed in a corrugated cardboard boxes to provide added protection for your items in transit.

Oak Barn Beef strives to provide prompt delivery of our products. Please allow 3-5 business days for processing time in addition to the shipping transit times.

For example, an order received on Wednesday, going to California, would not be shipped until the following Monday. Please refer to the zone schedule below to estimate delivery times.
UPS Ground: We ship UPS Ground to customers that choose that option. Midwestern states can expect their boxes approximately 1-2 days after shipment and coastal states can expect their boxes approximately 3-4 days after shipment.

Addresses & Availability
Oak Barn Beef offers no guarantee of delivery with incorrect addresses. Please ensure all shipping addresses are correct prior to submitting your order. Packages are clearly marked “perishable” and will expire if not kept cold. It is the responsibility of the consumer to ensure that the contents of the package can be refrigerated promptly upon delivery. Oak Barn Beef is not responsible for packages that are lost, stolen, or perish due to the recipient not being available at the time of delivery. It is the responsibility of the sender to ensure someone is available to receive a gift package at the time of delivery. It is the buyer’s responsibility to make any special arrangements upon delivery for any order shipped to any apartment address. Typically, UPS will deliver to an apartment lobby. Please note that UPS will deliver to your doorstep with “No Signature Required.”
Your products should be frozen, partially frozen, or cool to the touch when you open the package. Partially thawed products can be re-frozen. Oak Barn Beef provides suggested cooking instructions with our perishable products. It is the responsibility of the consumer to follow all health and safety guidelines when thawing and handling products.
Packages may contain partially-dissipated dry ice and/or gel packs. This is common in the shipping process. Avoid touching any remaining dry ice with bare skin. You may leave dry ice inside the cooler to evaporate or use gloves to remove and dispose of the ice in a well-ventilated outdoor location, safely away from children and pets.
Our products can only be shipped within the continental United States. We do not ship internationally.
