Our Balderson cheese gift baskets start with world-class Balderson Cheddar Cheese, and are accompanied by a variety of gourmet foods such as homemade mennonite jams or jellies, summer sausage, delicious gourmet village dips, chutneys and toppings, fine chocolate treats and premium gourmet teas and coffee. Whether it is for family, friends, co-workers or that special someone, everyone will enjoy our unique and generous gift baskets.
When you order your gift basket, the final product is sealed in cellophane, garnished with a decorative bow and includes a personalized card, ready for gift-giving.
Our non-cheese gift baskets are full of delicious gourmet and local treats, but don't contain cheese or meat products. They are also a practical idea if you are travelling with your gift basket and are not able to refrigerate cheese. We have a large selection of non-perishable baskets to choose from.
We can also build a custom basket filled with items of your choice. Call Us Directly or Email Us and we can help you create a customized gift basket.
(PLEASE NOTE: As much as possible we do our very best to fill orders according to the selected basket, but sometimes substitutions are necessary)
Do you ship to the United States and around the world?
It depends on what is being shipped. Please contact us at (613) 267-4492 to inquire about shipping to your area.
How is shipping calculated?
Shipping costs are determined based on the weight (both actual and dimensional) of the product, the delivery requirements for the product (refrigeration, special packaging), and the destination of the package. For more specific shipping costs regarding any product, please contact us at (613) 267-4492
What Shipping Carriers do you use?
Depending on the destination, required date for delivery of an order or preference of our customers, we use CANPAR, UPS and Canada Post.
Will my cheese basket stay fresh and arrive in good condition?
All of our cheese products are vacuum-packed to ensure freshness. When shipping cheese and perishable products locally and across Canada, our cheese and meat products are packed with freeze packs and are placed inside an insulated container. During summer months, we double the quantity of freeze packs and add just enough dry ice to keep the cheese cool and fresh.
We also schedule the delivery of your order to avoid it sitting in a shipper's warehouse over the weekend. So if you order cheese or a gift basket containing cheese, on a Friday, your order will go out on the following Monday so that it does not spend Saturday and Sunday in an un-refrigerated warehouse.
Do you make custom gift baskets?
Yes, we mostly certainly do! We welcome customers to contact us to make arrangements to pick from our vast selection of balderson cheese products, gourmet foods and local treats to create their own personalized basket.
Is it possible to order wine and have it included in my gift basket?
Soon, we are just in the process of opening an LCBO agency dept in our store which means we will have a selection of wine than can be added to our baskets by the end of 2019.
Does the packing or delivery slip for gift baskets, indicate any information about the price?
We are very conscientious when it comes to the packaging and delivery of gift items. The only information that your recipient will see in their package is their name, address and a personalized gift card from you.
