Shipping & Delivery


Our products are shipped via UPS. Once your order ships, you will receive an email with your tracking number (this is separate than the email confirming your order was placed).

You may request delayed shipping by making a notation on your order from the Shopping Cart page, before you continue to checkout. This option is not available for certain seasonal products or on orders placed between October 1st - December 31st.

Order Notes on shipping page


Our web store shipping costs are calculated rates based on the actual cost of shipping to your address.


Shipping and delivery timing are estimates only. You will receive an order confirmation shortly after you place an order, and you will receive a second email with tracking number for your order once it ships (typically 1-2 business days after you place the order).

Due to the perishable nature of our product, we ship on 1- and 2-day transit schedules.

At this time, we only deliver to the contiguous 48 United States and do not ship to Hawaii or Alaska. We cannot ship any products (including non-perishables like books and merchandise) to Canada, Puerto Rico or to the US Virgin Islands. We do not deliver to P.O. Boxes or P.M.B., A.P.O., or F.P.O. addresses.

In order for us to ship your product safely, we must follow important safety guidelines. Each order will be packed in a reusable styrofoam cooler with dry ice and/or reusable gel packs.

Dry ice may be completely evaporated upon delivery. Products may begin to defrost during shipment. As long as the products are still partially frozen, you can refreeze them safely in your freezer.

Once you receive your package, please refer to safe handling instructions included with your shipment.


Every fulfillment step of your order is carefully completed by hand to ensure your order will arrive at your doorstep just the way you ordered it. However, in the unusual event you are not 100% satisfied with your web order, we will gladly refund your money or replace your order with a few pieces of information from you.

In order to be eligible for a refund or replacement order, we ask that you email us and provide the following information:

  • Photo(s) of the package as received
  • Photo(s) of specific products related to complaint, including photos of the label
  • Order number or email address used to place your order

Joyce Farms strives to maintain our website with the most up to date and accurate information as possible. However, in some instances, the product you order may be out of stock. In this rare situation, you will be notified immediately and will have the following options:

  1. Cancel the order completely.
  2. Cancel only the unavailable portion of your order.
  3. Substitute an available similar product.
  4. Delay your shipment until the product becomes available.


Our goal is to process and ship your order as quickly as possible, but unfortunately, this makes canceling or changing an order difficult. If for any reason you need to cancel or make changes to your order, please email immediately, and we will do our best to accommodate your request. However, given the perishable nature of our products and our goal to fulfill orders as quickly as possible, we are unable to guarantee a refund for any orders canceled or changed after they are placed. Refused or returned orders will not be refunded unless we specifically requested you to refuse or return your order.
