WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR YOU? If you are normally able to choose UPS Ground with a 3 day transit from our location, you should expect to be added into the additional time in transit day and be bumped to the 3 Day Select option. The most up to date shipping information will not be available until November 19th.

All UPS 2nd Day Air and UPS 3 Day Select packages tendered Dec. 17th and18th and all UPS 2nd Day Air packages tendered Dec. 19th will require an additional day in transit.

All orders are first come - first served and are never shipped the same day the order is placed. We do not guarantee that your orders will ship the same week they are placed. Our Shipping Schedule is as follows: 3 Day Shipping goes out on Mondays and Tuesdays, 2 Day Shipping goes out Tuesday through Wednesday, and 1 Day Shipping goes out normally on Thursdays. Fridays our Shipping Department is closed as UPS will not deliver on Saturdays (unless Saturday delivery is chosen) or Sundays. UPS cannot specify a time frame of when they can deliver but they state the package should get there anytime between 6:00 am and 7:00 pm. If shipping to a business please state your hours of operation Monday thru Friday. If you are ordering and must choose 3 Day Shipping, please be sure to try to order the week prior because if you order on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, your order will not ship until the next following business week. If your order states UPS 2 or 3 Day Ground then these orders will go out Mondays through Wednesdays. Again, please note that orders do not ship the same day they are placed.

Our goal is to ship our product to you so that it safely arrives with its full nutrition and flavor preserved, at the lowest possible cost to you. Our meats are processed fresh and then flash frozen until they arrive at your door. This method allows us to deliver meats of the highest possible quality.

Please note that we do require an order minimum of 5 lbs to ensure that your frozen products arrive safely.

Due to availability of some products, your order may not ship immediately. If it is critical that your order not be delayed, please call us at (800) 326-7874.

Our Shipping Guarantee

If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, we will issue a refund or replacement of the product in question (your choice) depending on the situation. If you return a shipment to Blackwing, it must arrive to Blackwing wholesome. To insure that your order arrives properly frozen, please make sure all address information given to Blackwing is correct. If a package is delayed and products perish due to incorrect address information, we can not give a full refund. We will never ship an order out over the weekend unless Saturday delivery is specified. Just call us at (800) 326-7874 if you have any concerns. It's that simple!
