Missing Item Claims

At Sunflower Meadows Herb Farm we’ve developed a careful process for packing and filling retail orders, using a multiple-step order fulfillment check system to ensure that errors and missing items are not common. With this process, we are able to see when a rare oversight occurs; therefore when missing item claims are filed we require a visual of the packing slip to be submitted with the claim.

Claim Process:

  1. Please take a deep breath and carefully check underneath all packaging materials.
  2. Take a picture of the contents you received and another of your packing slip
  3. Contact us immediately! — You must send us a message within 48 hours of the packages delivery receipt or we will be unable to process the claim.
  4. The claim will be reviewed by our team.
  5. If your claim is accepted you will have the option to receive a replacement or a refund to your original payment method.
  6. We reserve the right to refuse a claim if it is deemed as not in our error,  by confirmation from our thorough check process.

Missing Package Claim
Included with every standard shipping fee is a tracking number.
You can track your package by following the link on your shipping notice receipt or tracking it on the USPS website.

Tracking number isn’t updating:

  • USPS servers don’t always update properly — Don’t worry if this happens, contact us and we will do our best to help you.
  • The order was “lost” and does not show scan — In the instance that an order was lost or not properly scanned contact us and we will send a replacement after personally double checking with USPS.

Tracking shows order stuck in transit:

  • Unfortunately, we do not have any control over these situations.  However, if you notice your package stuck in transit for longer than 4 business days (under normal weather conditions) please contact us and we will try to help you in any way we can to ensure delivery.
