Frequently Asked Questions
Answers below to questions on Checkout issues, shipping charge calculations and where to enter key codes, coupon codes, promo codes and source codes!
- My Computer Hangs at Checkout
Customers have reported that their browsers hang at CheckOut and they cannot process their orders - and we have found that usually it is customers using older Safari and Chrome browsers that are having this issue. The solution is to close your browser and try another browser - Chrome, FoxFire of Microsoft Explorer. You may also need to update your browser because recent Credit Card Security changes are not supported in older browser versions.
- Are your products organic and non-GMO -
Answer: Our products are non-GMO and what is called Naturally Grown (transitioning to organic), we don't apply pesticides or herbicides on or around our food crops. We will be finally able to apply for Organic status on some of our acres late this year.
- WHY does shipping seem so expensive?
Answer: Products ship by weight and box dimension - we are selling specialty bulk food products. Most of the products prepare more than a meal per package too. We do not mark up the shipping OR add a handling charge. You may get a less expensive shipping option by using the freight dropdown and picking USPS priority flat rate shipping. See more information in the ANSWER to the question how is your shipping calculated (below)! The most accurate place to estimate your shipping cost is in your shopping cart. The lowest priced shipping option is the Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box.
Any order for the following - One of our 8 oz pinoles or ga'ivsa or huun ga'i -or- two 1 lb bags of our tepary -or- one of our 2 lb tepary will fit in a priority mail small flat rate box.

-HOW LONG will it take to get my my order?
Answer: Orders normally ship from our warehouse within 24 hrs.
Domestic orders will usually arrive within 1-5 business days (depending on where you live).
- How is your SHIPPING CALCULATED?
Answer: It is not like shipping clothing - carriers charge by box dimension and weight. Our online prices reflect a dscounted price to assist with freight costs for our online customers. When shipping USPS Priority Mail shipping is calculated on what will fit in each of the 3 box sizes available. If shipping across several zones (example West Coast to East Coast) then USPS Flat Rate Priority is the best method for the customer and is cheaper than UPS ground and shipping time is 2 days on priority mail versus up to 5 business days across country via UPS. If shipping regionally within the western US then UPS may be cheaper and possibly faster though it is also based on weight and dimension. Our advice is to look at all the methods available in the checkout and select the one that is most economical for you. We do not charge any handling over and above the actual shipping charge.
Please Note: We do not currently ship Internationally. This may be added in the future.
