RATES AND CARRIER
We carefully hand pack each box of apples, and ship nationwide to the "lower 48" using UPS ground. We have done the homework to determine how to pass along the most competitive shipping rates to you, our customer. What we learned is that our e-commerce partner, Shopify, has recently partnered with the UPS and is able to offer the best available shipping rates to all Shopify storefront owners (i.e. the Quarry Hill Orchards Apple Box Store) and their customers.
In short, we still ship UPS ground, we just have reduced the price of our products to completely exclude the costs associated with UPS carrier fees; we let Shopify and UPS calculate these at checkout for improved accuracy and cost.
Have a corporate UPS account that you can use? Super! We can use your account no problem.
Apples are packaged and shipped on Mondays. Shipping takes one to four business days - check out the map below for a delivery estimate.
PLACING MULTIPLE ORDERS
Sending more than one box this year? If you’re shipping gifts to multiple addresses, please order each box separately. That way, your gifts will go to the right place, with any personalized cards or messages you choose to include.
AT FARM PICK UP
Want to deliver a box of apples yourself, or maybe pass them out at your company party? If you don't want or need shipping boxes and instead want to pick your order up at the farm, please enter your Ohio address as the "Shipping Address" during checkout. You then will be offered a shipping choice called "At Farm Pick Up - Free". Please choose this option and we'll have your apples ready for you on the delivery day you selected.
Ordering a lot of boxes for clients and business partners? We’re happy to help. We have discounted shipping rates for large orders, and can add your logo or other branding to gift cards inside. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
