May 26, 2016 – Modesto, CA
Modesto Milling is willing to ship products almost anywhere, but we also understand that means shipping costs can get steep in many areas of the country. In the past, there were two ways savvy customers and buying cooperatives would “share the burden” of shipping and overall feed costs: build a group of buyers who would bundle shipments or petition local feed stores and retailers to start carrying Modesto Milling products. Both of those ways of ordering and shipping feed, supplements and other items will continue to work, but we are also forming new relationships that will make things even easier for you.
We are proud to announce a new partnership with Azure Standard that gives us a much larger distribution footprint where we can make it easier and more cost effective to get many Modesto Milling products brought to one of thousands of community drop sites around the country. Azure Standard started as an organic farm about 40 years ago, but has built a large network of sites where they deliver more than 12,500 non-GMO and organic products direct to families, manufacturers and retailers across the nation, including Hawaii and Alaska. These products can come in bulk and “family-friendly” sizes.
Another way our direct customers can save on larger quantities of feed is through our new pallet pricing option. If you order 50 – 50 lb. bags of the same type of feed, that makes up a full pallet of 50 bags. Since it is easier for us to prepare and ship (or have you will call the order, if you are nearby), we can extend a $10 per pallet discount. This is a great opportunity for our end-user customers to save money on feed they would have purchased anyway.
Modesto Milling customers expect us to look out for the health and wellbeing of the chickens, rabbits, goats, sheep, horses, pigs, cattle, chinchillas and other animals and poultry we feed. But rest assured, we do our best to look after your financial wellbeing and convenience, too.
