Due to an astronomical increase in shipping costs imposed on us last season, we regretfully inform you that due to the weight of our products, some of our far-away shipping zones west of the Mississippi River will now incur a small shipping fee to help offset the added expense of those zones. For the past several years, we have waived this additional cost, but we simply cannot afford to eat the differences any more, and we don't wish to raise prices across the board. We feel this is the most fair option to all of our customers. Your cart total will reflect the cost increase difference at checkout. We are truly sorry to have to do it this way, but the economy has forced our hand on this matter.
