Refund/ Return Policy
International customers: We have no control over customs or the postal service shipping times, so we are no longer offering International Shipping. Things get held up sometimes in customs and the postal service is understaffed which is leading to longer lead times than expected. We are very sorry.
Fresh Pine Needles
We realize that on occasion postage takes longer than expected. If you needles are still green and supple they are still good, if they get left in a mailbox baking in the desert sun (for example) whoops they can expire. If you are feeling like your needles aren’t up to snuff upon receiving them shoot us a photo of the needles ( outside of the bag please) within 24 hours of receiving them so we can learn how our process & product is getting to you. Don’t worry we will send you a replacement product if they seem to have hit their expiration date in delayed transit because we understand & sometimes postage can take longer than expected these days.
Please note… all pines will lose a bit of their green luster in the fall when they are shedding, though the medicinal content is still high in the fall. Pine is an organic semi perishable so it comes with some natural imperfections and seasonality. we are processing a lot of pine and it is normal to have some brown needles here and there. We try to sift our brown needles but may miss a few in sifting through a-lot of needles. Some of the pine may look slightly different. This is because we sustainably forage Eastern White pine from many specimens and all trees have there own character traits. Pine will always oxidize a bit after harvest. The bags will have some inner condensation, this is normal. We want to deliver a good product and try our best to educate you in regards to the product you are receiving.
There are many moving pieces to shipping a fresh product, staffing accordingly to have foragers on hand, using a crystal ball to predict daily sales (haha) and processing/ packaging for shipment within 24 hrs of harvest. We are always learning so please reach out ( in kindness please ) if you are not satisfied and we will work with you.
