Frequently Asked Questions

Ordering and Deadlines

What payment methods does Dutch Meadows Farm accept?
We accept payments via credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover).
If shopping at our farm store in Paradise, we also accept check or cash.
Why did I get charged more than it showed at checkout?
Since many items are priced by the pound your final total may be a little more or less than your order's initial estimated total. Once finalized, your total will be charged to your credit card on file and your receipt will be emailed. It's our policy to match the weight over the number of packs in a bundle. Example: If we have a steak that is less than the estimated weight, we might put 2 in to get closer to the average weight. Once your card is charged, you will receive a final order email. This is where you can see exactly what you were charged and for what.
Can I cancel or edit my order after the Deadline?

Why is my order not coming for almost 2 weeks?
