All orders placed on-line at pembertonfarms.com will ship out on the soonest available shipping day. If we receive your order prior to 2pm, Monday through Thursday, we will ship it via UPS on the same day. Otherwise, we will ship your gift on the next available business day. Whenever possible, we will deliver local gifts via courier on the same day.
If your gift's arrival is time sensitive, please call us for exact details at 1-800-551-7327. Please see details and exceptions below.
We deliver our gifts via two methods, local courier service and United Parcel Service (UPS).
Gifts that qualify for our local courier delivery service (greater Boston area) are delivered via our vehicles and should arrive at your recipient's destination the day the order is placed as long as we receive the order by noon (except on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays).
Gifts that are outside our local courier range are securely packaged in a sturdy shipping carton and shipped via UPS Ground Service. All UPS deliveries are shipped out on the next available business day (or same day depending on when we receive the order); we determine the shipping date based on the transit time it takes for the gift to arrive fresh.
Since most of our gifts are perishable we will not ship a gift if it will not arrive within the same week the order is placed. For example, if an order is placed on a Wednesday (after 2pm) and it takes two or more business days to arrive, we may hold the order and ship in on the following Monday to allow the gift to travel during consecutive business days. This will insure the gift does not sit at UPS over the weekend and potentially spoil. For more details on your gifts' exact shipping date you may contact us at 1-800-551-7327.
