Shipping/Returns Terms & Conditions

Shipping Timeline

Given the chilled nature of our product, we take great care to preserve quality and freshness throughout the shipping process. As a result, we do not ship for weekend deliveries. Orders are processed Monday-Wednesday with a standard 2-day delivery. Our shipping timeline to reach you is 3-9 days. Orders placed/charged on Monday or Tuesday are typically shipped by Wednesday for delivery by Friday.

Shipping Locations

We provide standard 2-day shipping to the 48 contiguous United States and the District of Columbia. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to ship to Alaska or Hawaii. 

Cancellations and Order Changes

All purchases are final. Once an order has been packed/prepared/shipped, no cancellations or modifications are possible. Similarly, if you wish to add to your order, Once Upon a Farm reserves the right to treat any additions as a second order incurring additional shipping charges.

Changes to Your Subscription

Once Upon a Farm offers a subscription purchasing model for your convenience. When you create a customized subscription (via the Build Your Box page) on our website, you can select any combination of available blends (for a total of 24 pouches), select how often you would like your subscription to renew (every 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 weeks), and set up automatic recurring payments. In between subscription cycles you may modify these selections at any time before your next charge, pause your subscription, or cancel it. Please note subscriptions are locked for editing one day before your next renewal.

Expiration Dates

Because our product is refrigerated, it naturally has a quicker expiration date than processed, shelf-stable food. We make every effort to ensure that your shipment has a minimum 2-week expiration date. Please note that pouches can be frozen all the way up until the expiration date (for up to 6 months) and must be eaten within 24 hours of thawing. 

 Shipping Rates

We’re parents, so we know the cost of being a parent, and we work hard to provide you with the deepest discounts possible while still providing the highest quality possible. We are proud to be able to offer FREE shipping on all subscriptions and orders over $45 as well as a discounted shipping for a la carte orders under $45. 


We do not accept returns for food products, but we will issue credit for products that are damaged en route to their destination. To seek credit, please email or call us with the following information:

  • Order number
  • Damaged product item description
  • Condition of damaged product upon arrival
  • Date and time package was received

Shipping Process for Perishable Food

Shipping perishable food is tricky business. In order to ensure your product stays fresh in transit we use a special liner inside the box, add ice packs, and use 1-3 day shipping (depending on your location). However, please note that your order will arrive within 3-9 days from the time you placed your order. When your package ships (both subscriptions and a la carte), we will send you a confirmation email with a link to track your order.
