Placing an Order for Delivery 

- We send perishable boxes between Tuesday & Thursday (at the latest) for all NZ courier delivered parcels.

- Free local deliveries will be twice a week - once on a Wednesday & once on a Friday.

- We send Waitaki Valley boxes delivered with Lakeline freight, once a week to be delivered on a Thursday. 

Non-perishable items can be sent nationwide and take between 1-4 business days for delivery. 

If your order is confirmed and paid for before 12pm Monday to Thursday, we will aim to ship the same day. Orders received after 12pm will be shipped the next business day. Orders received on Friday or the weekend will be shipped on Monday.

All orders to a non-rural address can expect delivery in one to two days after receiving shipping confirmation. This is not guaranteed however, and we do encourage you to contact us if your order is required in a short time frame. Over the Christmas period please allow a few extra days on top of this for delivery.

Please note that for Fruit & Vege Box Deliveries, we receive our fresh produce on a Monday /Tuesday, so no orders will be sent out before Tuesday / Wednesday. Any orders for rural delivery must be placed by Tuesday as these will be sent no later than Wednesday to ensure you receive this by the weekend.   

Please note that this is NOT a refrigerated service. Brydone Wholefoods cannot guarantee the condition of perishable goods, such as meat, dairy and fresh produce, delivered outside of the Oamaru area. This applies to RURAL deliveries. If you are not sure whether your address is rural please refer to the NZ Post website. Please understand that these are ordered at your own risk.

All orders are sent from our Brydone Wholefoods store.
