Who Ships Pasties?

Not everyone is lucky enough to live in the same town as a pasty shop, especially one that is still open. That’s why I decided to do some digging and put together some places that offer pasty shipping in the states. There are plenty of pasty shops who are open and shipping locally, but the ones included ship a variety of places.

Similar to the rest of the site, this is focused around Michigan pasties, but there are other options throughout the country. I’ll try and keep this updated with any new places I see offering pasties for shipping. Of note, most shipping costs no matter your location are at least $30 because they have special packaging to keep the pasties frozen.

I know of pasty places in California, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, Virginia and Washington but from what I see, none of them ship much further than a specified radius around their shops (via DoorDash or GrubHub). As always, let me know if I missed something.

Michigan’s Lower Peninsula

Cousin Jenny’sReview

These have to be ordered in increments of 12, which means you have to order at least 12. They can ship nationwide and are sent out on Tuesday and Wednesdays.pasty, pasty review, pasties, pasty guy, cousin jenny's cornish pasties, traverse city

Pasty HausReview

Pasty Haus ship almost everywhere and they only ship out Tuesdays and Wednesdays (as long as you order by 6pm ET Saturday).

Uncle Peter’sReview

Uncle Peter’s is known for its vast array of options and can also deliver anywhere in the country.

Upper Peninsula

Dobber’sReview

Dobber’s has a couple places in the U.P. and is usually one of the bigger pasty shippers even when there isn’t a pandemic. 

Hiawatha Review

There are a couple places surrounding Naubinway (west of The Bridge) that sell Hiawatha pasties and beginning 2023, they started shipping in bulk.

Lawry’sReview

If you have enough room in your freezer, I’d definitely go with the 24 pack.pasty, pasty review, pasties, pasty guy, pasty trail, ishpeming, lawry's pasty shop

Lehto’sReview

Lehto’s opened a second location in downtown St. Ignace for increased traffic, but they don’t usually ship during the summer. However, when it’s not summer, they can ship day of order if you get it in early.

Pasty OvenReview

Pasty shipments go out every Tuesday from Pasty Oven, assuming there isn’t a snowstorm. As of 2020, Meijer and other grocery stores sell Pasty Oven pasties. Review coming soon.

Pasty Central

Pasty Central is one of the go-to spots for pasty shipments in Keweenaw Peninsula. Make sure to check the website for availability.

Arizona

Cornish Pasty Co. Review

I’m not sure how far they actually ship, but they have locations all over Arizona and also one in Las Vegas, and I believe they are all open. Shipping is only done on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Florida

4 & 20 Pasty Company Review

Located in Sarasota, they’ll ship everywhere as long as they can get to you in 48 hours. Their shipping days are usually early in the week.

Minnesota

Pasties Plus

They apparently ship via Priority Mail or UPS, according to the Facebook page. These come from northern Minnesota, a place I have not been.

New York

Parker’s British Institution

Found in Buffalo, they will ship everywhere. Plus, if you spend more than $100, shipping is free.

  1. Have you been to My Dad Nick’s Copper Country Pasty Factory at 7 mile and Merriman in Livonia? They don’t ship yet but they are the best I’ve EVER had. No joke!

    1. Hello, Kim. I assume you have an affiliation to them? Either way, it’s on my list. I will try and make it there soon. Definitely before the end of the year.

    1. I believe that site is for the location in Rhinelander, WI which I’ve been to. Digging into the Butte location, it appears they had to close last month after 74 years open. Bummer.

      1. We had some from Joe’s Pasty shop last summer. They were divine and very authentic. They had been looking for a buyer but couldn’t find anyone to take it on. 🙁

  2. Hi You sure missed one of the best pasty’s I ever had with good meat to crust ratio…and potatoes rutabaga carrots. while they are made in an oblong form without the handle they are the best I have had and the owner is simply wonderful as are the statt. Check out Pasty’s plus in Grand Rapids, MN…my grandfather was a copper miner in the UP and my grandma with 12 kids made them with the handle in cast iron skillets with lard and they were so awesome. I never put ketchup on those. Not ever. But I do once in a while but not on Pasty’s plus nor on Pasty Ovens( btw they do not use lard anymore)
    Check out Pasty’s plus grand rapids MN a tiny little place with great pasty’s.

  3. BTW also Joes Pasty shop is now in Three Lakes, WI but they are not nice and very rude . They refused to ship because they cannot make enough to make each day, now how is that for an excuse? OMG if your making pasty’s daily just add your shipped items and ship out. I live in the same state but because the owner was so very rude I would never buy from them not ever.

    1. I believe Joe’s is in Rhinelander and not Three Lakes, I’ve been to that one. Their original place burned down so they’re a bit restrictive on how many they make.

    1. I was just in Ontonagon for a week… ate Syl’s pastys every night but one… brought home to KS their cooler-pack of sixteen ($99)… but I don’t know if they ship those (they were not on dry ice, but blue ice packets in a styrofoam cooler with 1” walls. Kept them frozen ‘nuff for fifteen hours though. I try to do this at least once every year because I grew up there, and Syl’s makes pastys just like my mom did.

  4. Great website. Much needed. There used to be a pasty shop in Los Gatos California called “BJ Bull’s”. It was owned by a friend of mine, who said the recipe was from his grandmother in Cornwall. The taste was divine. He went out of business, and I’ve never seen another shop like it. I go to the Scottish highland games occasionally at the Alameda fairgrounds occasionally try the pasties from the vendors there. I find them rather pedestrian. So now I am on a hunt for a pasty that lives up to the BJ Bull experience. Do you know of any pasty shops in the SF Bay Area of California?

    1. Wow, the SF Bay Area? This is what I have in my notes for California pasties: Pasty Kitchen in Los Alamitos, Pasty Shack and Marshall’s pasties in Sacramento, Grass Valley in Costa Mesa, Barbara Ann’s Pasties in Orange County and Pies of the World in Placerville. I would double check all of them are still open, as I probably started writing these down a couple years ago. Thanks for reading!

    1. I’d guess there are no pasties west of Kansas City, but you never know with some searching. I reviewed the Clock Tower Bakery which I see is now closed. Unfortunately, no. I used to live in KC but never ran into pasties on my travels that way.

    2. Bierocks – wannabe pastys! Good in their own right, but not anything like pastys taste and with a little more size (typically) and more robust crust – really. I’ve pastys them attempted briefly by someone selling a few in a “coop” storefront in Derby before 2020. Given a chance, they’d catch on in KS!

  5. Have you ever been to Mineral Point, WI? The town is located in South West Wisconsin. Twinned with Red Ruth England. The Cornish minerals settled there and the town has preserved much of the history. The Red Rooster Cafe is a third generation run restaurant serving fresh Cornish Pasty every day!

    1. Hi Tammi! I’ve heard of the pasties there, but I haven’t been there. Getting to western Wisconsin always difficult to find in the schedule but I’ll get there someday.

  6. Red Rooster in Mineral Point was the first place I ever had a pasty. That was 20 years ago, and I keep meaning to get back there. Just finished one from The Mucky Duck in Ames, IA. That reminded me of how much I enjoy pasties, hence my stop here, on your website!

    1. Wow, I have family that went to Iowa State but I’ve never heard of The Mucky Duck. Adding it to the list! Also trying to get to Mineral Point at some point in the near future.
