Q: How are your shipping costs calculated?

A:  Beecher's products are perishable and require refrigeration, even during shipping, which means the cost of shipping may exceed what it costs to ship non-perishable products. Our costs are calculated according to the size and weight of the package and the location the package is shipped to.

  • We ship our products in a way that will not hurt the integrity of the product. Our products are shipped in reusable, insulated coolers with ice packs. The number of ice packs is determined by the type of product purchased and the time of year the product is shipped (i.e. warmer weather requires more ice packs versus colder weather which requires less). Total package weight and size directly effect the cost of shipping for that package.
  • All Beecher's online store products are shipped from our fulfillment center in Wisconsin.

We work closely with FedEx to keep our costs reasonable and are always investigating shipping options that will bring our costs down without hurting the integrity of our product.

Q: How long will it take to receive my cheese?

A: Orders shipping 2-Day must be placed by end-of-day Tuesday to arrive by the end of that week. Orders shipping Standard Overnight must be placed by end-of-day Wednesday to arrive by the end of that week. Currently, our products ship Monday through Thursday from a fulfillment house in Wisconsin.

We do everything possible to ship according to this schedule, but are not responsible for deliveries that are delayed due to weather or "acts of God."

Q: Help! My order was delivered while I/my gift recipient was out of town!

A: We are unable to replace items that perish due to the recipient being unavailable at the time of delivery. Our boxes are clearly marked “perishable” on the outside and we are not responsible for the items received but not opened. Please make sure that you or your recipient will be in town on the date that your order is due to arrive.
