Stoneberg alpaca meat is processed in HIllsboro, Oregon where it is frozen and labeled appropriately. We ship this meat to you at the beginning of the week to help ensure it arrives to you in a timely manner.
Your meat order will be shipped in an insulated shipping box. We hope that all meats will arrive frozen. Be aware that thawing can occur due to weather, shipping delays or small orders that do not fill a box. All meat should arrive “cool to the touch” or at refrigerator temperature.
Our goal is for your order to arrive frozen. To ensure that your order arrives in perfect condition, our products are shipped in an insulated shipping box packed with a frozen gel pack or dry ice.
Your products should be frozen or cool to the touch at time of arrival. Place them into the freezer or refrigerator immediately upon receipt and inspection.

We recommend that you have the order delivered to your home address to avoid any shipping issues due to the office/business being closed for any reason.

In the event the delivery date is altered due to business closure we are not able to guarantee the delivery.
How will my order arrive? Is it frozen?

When will my order arrive? Where can I view my shipping information?
Our farm direct meat is shipped to your door on Mondays. In the event of a holiday during the shipping week or if there is an unforeseen event that causes a delay, we may ship on a different day. Shipping times are dependent on your zip code and transit time.
Once your order is in transit you will receive an email with the tracking number.
All of our boxes are packaged with a frozen gel pack or dry ice, which is calculated based on your geographic location/transit time. The dry ice may be completely evaporated when delivered on the guaranteed date, but your beef should still be frozen or cold to the touch/at a safe temperature for freezing. Orders are packed to sustain their frozen state up to the guaranteed delivery date.
We suggest that you use your home address for shipping to avoid any shipping issues/delays due to limited business hours and closures due to holidays. Once your order is in transit you will receive an email with the tracking number.
Please check your spam folder if you believe your order has shipped and you have not received tracking information.
