We have found that USPS is the most cost effective way for us to ship boxes from our location. Many other
methods have add-on charges, or fees to come to the farm. It is also the quickest way for you to get your
shipment at a reasonable price. Once the gourds are shipped, most locations are delivered in 2-6 days
depending on which side of the USA you reside. We rarely have reports of damaged gourds with this method of
shipping. However, recently ALL the shipping methods have gone to dimensional rates which can be very high to
some locations. To keep costs down we will be glad to ship the least expensive method.
