Our high pricing mostly results from low production volume, which means that each individual product needs to sell for more to cover the operating costs. We can't compete with prices at places such as Costco because of the massive economies of scale they have that we don't. However, if we continue to put money and resources into building up our local production, the prices will go down as we achieve economies of scale. High prices in the beginning are a "necessary evil" because without them, there is no money to reinvest into development, which is the only thing that will lower them down the line.
We ship the frozen meat in an insulated and cooled container on Wednesday morning via Fedex. The box typically arrives at your doorstep the next day (Thursday).
We pack your box in an insulated container with ice to keep it frozen even if it has to sit out on your porch all day!
We ship anywhere in Hawai`i. We will soon be expanding to the mainland, too!
