With your purchase, you are reserving your garlic for fall shipping. After the garlic is done drying and curing, we will begin filling orders (mid-August) and shipping on a first come, first served basis. The cost of shipping depends on the size of your purchase and your location. I will ship your package as Priority Mail through the US Postal Service. I also provide a tracking number. I may use other delivery services, especially for larger orders, to try and provide you with the cheapest shipping rate possible.
