Please read these directions for sales conditions and shipping BEFORE continuing on to U.S. Order Form.
Conditions of Sales: Your order will be prepared and shipped with the greatest care. However, you assume all risk involved with ordering these consumable products, as there are too many factors that are beyond our control once they leave our care. There are no returns, no refunds, no guarantees, no replacements. We are not responsible for late, lost or failed delivery. All sales are final.

We ship fresh cultures on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. These are shipped USPS Priority Mail only (2-3 day delivery). Please be sure to provide an address that will allow you to receive your order as quickly as possible, as we are not responsible for packages left out in the heat or the cold or at the post office. Please supply your email address or phone number so you can be notified when your order is shipped. A Tracking number from USPS will be emailed to you if you provide us an email address. We are not responsible when contact information is not given. Fresh Cultures are cultured specifically for you after receiving your order so there can be a 2-3 week delay in shipping fresh cultures, depending on quantities of orders received. Please do not call to check on your order unless it has been over 3 weeks since placing it. Due to the high volume of calls received, we ask that you use e-mail, if possible, if it becomes necessary to check on your order. Send inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org .
