Q - Why does it take so long for you to ship?
A - Please click here, it explains how all my food is made.
Q - Is it true you have a stock pile of mason jars and can ship quicker than what your times say?
A - Yes, we do have a lot of mason jars in our shop space. Most mason jars are filled with seeds, grains, seaweeds and other items that our shop needs to make mixes fresh. We can these items to make sure they stay fresh instead of sitting in a re-closable bag. Things like produce, meats and bakery items are not stored in these jars until the mixes are made the day before your items ship. We also keep food for our other pets in this area (we have 24 hermit crabs, 5 rats, 1 hedgehog, 1 betta, 2 cats, 2 dogs, 1 anole and 4 birds) as it's easier to have one food prep and storage area for than two in our house. As for shipping quicker, we also do have a family and lives outside of working. Pete works a 40 plus hour work week along with military duties and Lacey mainly runs Hermie's Kitchen along with running the house, child care, pet care and co owns the largest hermit crab group on Facebook. Running this store isn't as simple as throwing food into a bag and we hope that our customers understand this. :)
