As you know, it’s getting hot outside! All of our starter cultures are sensitive to temperatures over 100 degrees.
We don’t ship our cultures with ice packs, so if you live in a hot area, we recommend that you don’t order until it cools down.
If you do decide to order, we’ll email you a tracking number once your order has shipped. Please use the tracking information to anticipate the arrival of your starter culture so it can be brought in out of the heat right away.🌞
These live kefir grains mean a lot to me and I wanted to make sure I found the perfect way to ship them and get them to you safely. I pack these live grains in small glass jar, (size and shape of jar may vary) with fresh milk. Then I give them a prebiotic for extra food, and ship them Free USPS mail. I only ship on Mondays. This allows time for my grains to grow and multiply each week. I love these grains and I hope you will love them, too. They will make you kefir from the moment you receive them. There’s no re-hydrating these grains because they are ready to go. They will make you gallon upon gallon of kefir.
Take care of them, and they will take care of you for the rest of your life!
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. The problem is that ultra-pasteurized milk is heated at high temperatures for longer than regular milk, causing many problems when making kefir. Remember that kefir will add enzymes and good bacteria to pasteurized milk and make it a new food but when it is ultra pasteurized or heated for long periods the milk is no longer viable for making kefir.
Any other type of milk including raw milk that you get from your local farmer is still perfectly fine!
Due to the nature of these live cultures, we cannot accept any returns. Please know that all sales are final.
