In-Store Pick Up Option: Live close to Wentzville, Missouri? We now offer the option to pick up your order, which can save you time and shipping costs. All you have to do is follow these easy steps:

  1. Call us at 888-389-0626 to place your order. Our office is open Monday - Friday, 8 am - 5 pm.  We are closed most major holidays i.e., New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
  2. Let the customer service representative know that you would like to pick up your order (so they don't charge you shipping--yay!), and what time you will arrive at our office. Please give us 2 hours to process your order.
  3. Come see us at 100 Hamilton Industrial Court in Wentzville, MO 63385. Our receptionist will have your order ready for you.

Perishable Items: All perishable food products are carefully packed with ice packs and placed in a reusable, artic foil liner for shipment to maintain optimum quality.  The meat is individually vacuumed packed and frozen to provide you with the freshest meat possible.  Please note that all perishable items must be shipped UPS 2nd Day Air or UPS Next Day Air.  

Warm Weather Shipping: Certain items (such as some protein bars) shipped during the summer months can melt. The shipping department takes every precaution to make sure that all of our products are shipped in fresh condition, but we cannot guarantee your order will arrive un-melted. If your order contains such items that have been in the heat for any length of time, simply unpack your box, and without touching or smashing individual bars, place these items in your refrigerator for about an hour. They will re-harden and suffer no loss of nutrition.
