  1. I picked up my bag on Thursday and the bread that I ordered was not in it. I was supposed to have olive bread. Very disappointed.

    1. Hi Susan! We’re so sorry about your bread situation. This hiccup has been passed along to Customer Service, who’ll get back to you pronto. Please reach out to info@field-goods.com with any other questions or concerns.
