Frequently Asked Questions

General

Where did the name 'Bacon Swinery' come from?

Glad you asked! It's a funny story, actually...

Cooking

What is the best way to prepare the bacon?

It's actually quite simple! For more instructions, please refer to our preparation guide to see the best ways to cook your bacon. 

Storing

Do we need to freeze our bacon?

We freeze all the bacon prior to shipping so that it remains cool in transit. Its a cured meat so technically it can be stored outside refrigeration (like in a root cellar or wine), but we don’t recommend storing out of refrigeration for any length of time.

 

Is it safe to store in the fridge?

Yes! We recommend that you eat bacon within 4 to 6 weeks if you are storing it in the fridge.

Shipping

How is the bacon packaged?

Your bacon is stored in individual vacuum sealed bags to preserve freshness.  We then freeze it so that it travels well and remains cool in transit.  When it arrives you can toss it in the fridge or freezer and re-thaw it whenever you want to try your delicious bacon.

 

How is it shipped?

If you choose to have the bacon shipped to you it will come via USPS Priority Post. Keep in mind that unlike UPS or FedEx, they may not ring your door or they will try to put it in your mail box. You should receive emails from our carrier telling you when it is delivered, but you will want to check to make sure it is not sitting in the sun or your mailbox for a week.

If you have any questions about your order, send us an email at orders@baconswinery.com.

 

What should I do when my order arrives?

When you get your bacon toss it in the refrigerator. It should be cool when it arrives, but don’t worry if it is warm. Bacon travels really well. Bacon is a cured meat so it technically can be stored outside of refrigeration for extended periods of time, but we still recommend you refrigerate it once you receive it.
