Buyers Beware! Not all butterfly companies are on the up-and-up. Quite a few companies have only recently entered this industry. Swallowtail Farms has been providing quality butterflies and service to our customers since 1993. Please be sure to check out the Buyers Beware! section of this website to help you in shopping for your supplier of live butterflies. But, don't just take our word for it - check out how The Better Business Bureau gives Swallowtail Farms an A+ rating!


Please be sure to read all about the details of having a butterfly release at your wedding. All butterflies are guaranteed to be alive and healthy due to our Flight Proven™ Technology and other special methods we use to ensure that our premium live monarch butterflies arrive to you healthy and ready to fly. We are the Original Butterfly Company and we fully guarantee our butterflies. (Last minute orders are our specialty!). Instruction sheets are included with each shipment of live butterflies, but you can also see instruction sheets here for transferring and storage of the butterflies.
