COST AND CARRIERS

At Double 8 Cattle Company, we do our best to minimize the cost of shipping.  However, shipping perishable products is expensive.  Instead of inflating the costs of our products, we allow you to choose your shipping method based on the exact shipping cost.

Shipping rates are calculated based on the weight of your order, the shipping method selected, and the distance your order needs to travel. All orders ship from our farm in Central Ohio.

PACKAGING

Each frozen and individually vacuum sealed product is carefully packed into a cardboard box lined with eco-friendly insulation. In order to maintain the integrity of the package contents, all beef products are packed with dry ice and/or gel packs. Orders will be delivered frozen or slightly thawed depending on the time in transit.
