Mailing sweet corn to Texas!
[Return to Topics]

We live in Iowa and my daughter just married and moved to Texas. Guess what she is really missing right now????? Yes, our sweet corn! Does anyone know how I would go about mailing her some fresh corn on the cob? I can do the "next day" delivery, but was wondering how I would pack it. Any help would be appreciated.

Please e-mail me privately, as I need an answer tonight if possible.......

Trudy, you might ask a local vet for a box his or her drugs came in. They are shipped in styrofoam boxes of varying sizes, and the styrofoam box is inside of a cardboard box. Most vets throw them away.

That's the ticket!    Posted 07-31-2003 at 03:39:46       [Reply]  [No Email]
I get some from 'Doc' for shipping glass items...Nothing better...They are usually thicker than regular styro-coolers too...And the vet will have the 'cold-packs' with em...

I use one in the truck for cold drinks when I will be away from electricity all day...

Trudy, styrofoam ice chest and triple layers of plastic bags will keep anything cold and even keep frozen food hard as a rock for at least 13 hours that I know of for a fact. I put whatever I want to keep inside a plastic bag with ice and that inside another plastic bag, like a garbage bag. Seal them both up real tight with twist ties and put it in the ice chest. I use duct tape to make sure the ice chest it not going to come loose. Then I put the whole ice chest into another plastic garbage bag and twist tie. I have done this and not only had the stuff stay frozen, but still had ice cubes 13 hours later.

We get Frozen Ostridge Meat shipped that way to us. Ice packs and inside a cooler and it stays frozen 72 hours. Mark H.

Do you guys have an idea how to transport ostridge meat via air and to keep it cold? What do you use? I know Environtainers can do the job, but they are heavy and expensive. We can get a contract to fly ostridge meat, but they are VERY strict on the temp differences from loading to off loading. Thank you.
