Flat Rate Shipping is Here!

March 1, 2014

We listened and we understand the frustrations with high shipping costs.  However unlike others, we do not build shipping into the cost of our products.  But in order to get shipping prices down, we have worked together with our shipping partners, UPS and USPS and are thrilled to now offer all our customers $5.00 Flat Rate Shipping.  There are no minimums to get this rate.  We will either ship your order UPS Ground, or USPS Priority Mail, depending on the size of your order and your location.  For expedited orders or Sausage Orders, Here's what you can do so we can get you the best price we can on shipping:

1) Make a note on your online order in the "customer note" section: "Find me the cheapest shipping option."

    -OR- email us at

    -OR- call us at 1-800-243-8537 to place your order and have us check the shipping for you.

This will indicate to us that, as a customer, you prefer the cheapest shipping option even if it takes a day or two longer to arrive. 

2) We will review your order and compare the shipping prices between UPS and USPS to find you the cheapest shipping cost.

3) We will make adjustments to your order before we charge your card. 


We cannot guarantee that we can find a cheaper option than what is originally given to you, but we value our customers and will do our best!

Fuel Your Journey with Cattaneo Bros 

Our journey began in 1947 when the Cattaneo Brothers started slicing and drying lean strips of beef at the Berkemeyer Meat Market in downtown San Luis Obispo. Over the past 66 years there have been challenging times, but hard work and commitment has kept us going.  We continue to stay true to our passion to produce the highest quality gourmet meat snacks anywhere.

This year our journey included the launch of our brand new 100% Grassfed Beef Jerky Line, Range.  We are thrilled with our creation of a product that is as pure and natural as jerky can be.  We hope you will take Cattaneo Bros. products as the fuel for your journey wherever you may go.
