Once your order has shipped (and only then), we perform a “capture,” which means we transfer the authorized sum of money from your credit account to our merchant account.

All Perdue Farms products are vacuum-sealed and frozen prior to shipment. To keep orders chilled while in transit, we place items in insulated coolers and surround them with dry ice (an amount appropriate for the temperatures in your region of the country). Coolers are then packaged inside branded boxes for an added layer of protection. In an effort to reduce greenhouse gasses and lessen our carbon footprint, we’ve ensured that both coolers and boxes are recyclable. Read more about our sustainability efforts here.

Our Gift to You & Mother Nature

In every box, we include a reusable and recyclable grocery bag as well as a pollinator seed packet. Why seeds? Bees and butterflies help to make one out of every three bites of food we eat. We hope that you will plant the seeds to create a robust pollinator habitat near your home! We Care

Dry Ice – Please Read

Keep Out of Reach of Children | Do Not Touch With Bare Hands

Your package will contain dry ice, which is frozen carbon dioxide. Most (if not all) of the ice should be gone when you receive your package, but if some remains, please read on.

Dry ice is extremely cold. It may cause severe frostbite if it comes in contact with bare skin. It is harmful if eaten or swallowed. If ingested or if frostbite occurs, seek medical treatment immediately. Dry ice must be handled carefully. Do not touch to skin, mouth, or eyes. Do not put in drinks. Do not eat. Do not store it in areas other than those that are open and well-ventilated. Never pick up dry ice with bare hands. Always wear hand protection: an oven mitt or heavy cloth towel will work. Do not put dry ice directly on tiles or solid surface countertop as the extreme cold of the dry ice may cause the surface to crack.

Using a towel or mitt to protect your hands, move the dry ice aside, remove the product and then put the ice back in the package it came in. Within 24 hours, the solid dry ice will convert to gas. Do not breathe the carbon dioxide gas deeply or for an extended period of time.

All Niman Ranch products should be kept frozen. Thaw in the refrigerator for up to three days before cooking.

How We Ship Pet Products

Order for pet treats only: Products, along with a free grocery tote and pollinator seed packet, will be packed in a non-insulated cardboard box.

Order for pet treats plus frozen premium proteins: Pet treats, along with a free grocery tote and pollinator seed packet, will be placed on top of proteins in an insulated box that is filled with dry ice to maintain quality of frozen products.

Accepting Your Delivery

You don’t have to be at home! We’ll leave the package at your doorstep or a place around your home that’s most convenient (please indicate during checkout).

As soon as possible, bring your package inside and, if products are cool to the touch, place them in the refrigerator or freezer or consume them. Questions or problems? Call or text: 1-800-4-PERDUE (1-800-473-7383).

Shipping to Commercial Destinations: If your ship-to address is a commercial destination, please confirm that the business will be open and available to take deliveries. Include the business phone number, as drivers are often required to call businesses ahead of time to ensure that they accept packages.

Cooking Instructions

Defrosting and Cooking Instructions

See our Chicken Defrosting Guide and Beef Defrosting Guide for tips and tricks that will help you safely and effectively thaw products.

Cook all food to these minimum internal temperatures as measured with a food thermometer before removing food from the heat source.

  • Beef, pork, veal and lamb (steaks, chops and roasts) should be cooked to 145 F and allowed to rest for at least 3 minutes.
  • Ground meats should be cooked to 160 F.
  • All poultry (breasts, whole bird, legs, thighs, wings, ground poultry, giblets and stuffing) should be cooked to 165 F.

We freeze products at the peak of freshness, package orders in a way that maintains quality and guarantee a minimum shelf life of 30 days on all products we ship.

If for any reason, you are not happy with your order, contact us and we will be happy to replace items at no charge. Refund requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis; customer service reserves the right to refuse a refund request or, in certain circumstances, retrieve the shipment. When retrieval is required, we will notify the carrier and schedule the pickup; the customer is responsible for ensuring that the shipment is retrieved. Refunds are issued to the original form of payment.

Please Note: You must CALL customer service to cancel your order. We will make every effort to cancel the order. However, if the carrier has already picked up the order (i.e. it has left our facilities), we cannot cancel the order.
