We ship 95% of our orders via US Postal Service Priority Mail because of the set box shipping cost. My customers really save more money when they buy more product because the shipping cost is a set amount. It is very seldom we use other carriers. Those postal workers on the front lines are some amazing people given the volume of packages they handle and deliver, especially during the Christmas holidays. Of the millions they deliver, a small portion of those packages were jams, biscuit mix and pickles from Providence Preserves.
Getting orders ready for shipment actually began as early as March or April when we first start making preserves for the new season. It takes the bees pollinating the flowers/plants, farmers growing and harvesting the crops, the jar companies shipping jars on time and unbroken, correct size lids, the printers making the various labels, scheduling commercial kitchen rental time and hoping all the other ingredients needed are fresh and available.
Once we make our products when the fruits and vegetables are at their peak, they are packaged and sealed fresh awaiting orders.
In the final steps, we hand our boxes to our friends at the Cedar Hill Post Office to begin the journey, along with millions if not billions of other packages to their final destination. These ladies at our local post office are always polite and professional when I arrive there with your orders. The boxes are labeled and handled with care from my hands to yours. Thankfully, no one has reported receiving damaged goods.
Thank you for entrusting us to make & mail you a quality product. We hope the jams, pickles and chow-chow you receive gives you not only nourishment but feelings of happiness and contentment.
