We ship FedEx Priority Overnight for all perishable orders, and 2-day for all non-perishable orders to the continental US only. We do not ship to Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico at this time. A signature is not required for delivery. We CANNOT deliver items to PO Boxes. 

Currently, all perishable orders are being shipped Wednesday for Thursday delivery except for special ship days for the Holidays. Products must be ordered before 9:00AM EST on Wednesday for same-day shipping. All orders placed after 9:00AM EST on Wednesday will be shipped the following Wednesday, unless a later delivery date is selected.

You can select a desired delivery date, however, please keep in mind that there are factors such as heavy weather and mechanical errors that delivery trucks & planes of FedEx experience can delay a package at any time. Please allow an extra day or two when selecting your delivery date. If a delivery date is not selected, your order will ship on the next available ship day.

All merchandise, tinned fish, and other non-perishables ship FedEx 2-day, unless being shipped with a perishable order. All non-perishables are currently final sale due to COVID-19.


GLIDDEN POINT BACKWOODS POLICY: Glidden Point is located in rural Maine. Lincoln County, although beautiful, has some gnarly weather. Occasionally our farm loses power due to wind and snow storms, roads are blocked from downed trees, and our harvest area gets shut down due to torrential rain. Honestly, sometimes sh*t just hits the fan, but we make do, deal with it and we carry on because we love where we live. We will always do our best to get your packages to you as quick as possible, but there are things out of our control, such as heavy weather, and mechanical delays related to FedEx's trucks & planes, which may be cause for a possible delay in or loss of packages. In the event of compromised packages, we would be happy to work with you to issue refunds for packages or reship on a case by case basis. 


During the Holidays, our shipping carriers experience a much higher shipping volume, which can cause delays. We always pack our packages for extended travel in the event of an exception.

We take pride in the oysters we grow and sell, and want you to be happy with your order. We take the time to check and double check to make sure your package is right, but sometimes human error can occur.

If your package has been compromised upon delivery, or your package got lost, destroyed, damaged or delivered late, please do not discard your package. For refunds to be processed, we require photos of the damaged or compromised package, and a photo of the time and temperature tracker on the bottom of the lid. Please call us at 207-315-7066, or send us an e-mail at sales@gliddenpoint.com. Depending on a case-by-case basis, we may reship your package, or issue you a refund. If your package arrives compromised, please take photos so that we can resolve the issue accordingly. All products, perishable and non-perishable, are currently final sale due to COVID-19.
