Packaging & Shipping Information

I ship these live grains in milk in a small glass jar. Sometimes pressure can build up inside the jar, causing the milk to leak out a bit. This is why I also put the jar in a food-grade heat-sealed storage bag. If your grains/milk have leaked out of the jar and into the bag, and even if the bag seems to be filled up with air like a balloon, please note that this is perfectly normal. Your grains should still be just fine and ready to make delicious kefir for you.

I ship these grains from southern California via USPS Priority Mail. I only ship them on Mondays, unless Monday is a holiday in which case I'll ship them on Tuesday. It usually takes 2-3 days for these grains to reach anywhere in the country, but the post office doesn't guarantee this. I give these grains extra prebiotics before I ship them, so they can actually last for two weeks in the mail. So don't fret if your grains have been delayed. They should still be good to go when you receive them.

We'll email you a tracking link when we ship them, and on the USPS Tracking page, you'll be able to sign up for text alerts.

Please watch for your grains so that you can bring them inside as soon as they are delivered. They will be hungry by the time they reach your home, so be sure to feed them right away!

You don't want them to sit in your mailbox for hours on end. Outside temperatures can damage and even kill them.

This will make me very very sad!

Note about the milk you use

Please don’t use ultra-pasteurized milk when making kefir. Your kefir won’t do well. Many times organic milk that your purchase from a store is ultra-pasteurized, even if it does not say ultra-pasteurized. So if you choose to use organic milk, make sure you know what you are getting and that it's not ultra-pasteurized. Any other type of milk including raw milk that you get from your local farmer is still perfectly fine!
