Shipping Terms and Conditions

Shipping is limited to only 2 day and overnight shipping because the refrigeration within the packaging will not last longer, especially in the hot summer months of July and August. Because of this, we cannot ship over weekends. This limits our shipping days to Monday-Wednesday for 2 day shipping and Monday-Thursday for overnight shipping. Orders have to be given by noon to go out the same day.


Storage and Handling

  • Storage: Once opened, the product should be wrapped tightly with plastic wrap, or with other suitable wrap to keep the cheese from drying out or developing undesirable molds while in storage between uses. Products should be consumed within about two weeks after opened. The cheeses should always be refrigerated at  a temperature below 45, but more than 32.
  • Lively Run Vacuum Packed Items (Chèvre, 8oz Cheddar and 4oz Feta, Cayuga Blue, Blue Yonder, Gorge Trail Gouda, Finger Lakes Gold): When unopened, our vacuum packed items have a shelf life of at least 2 months. There are expiration dates on each individual package.
  • Lively Run Seneca Blue Moon: This cheese packaged with plastic wrap, has a relatively short shelf life. There are expiration dates on each individual package.
