Live Butterfly Releases
NOTICE: The 2023 live butterfly release season has ended.
The 2024 season will open with events dated February 8, 2024 and beyond.
We appreciate your business!
You may choose between an individual release, a mass release, or a combination of both. (Unless otherwise specified, all butterflies will be shipped in our free individual release boxes). If you would like to do a mass release or upgrade your individual release boxes, please be sure to check out our butterfly release packaging options. Also, we have a nice selection of live butterfly package deals, combining different types of release boxes into a single order!
- Read about our live butterfly guarantee and shipping policy to put your mind at ease.
- Our butterflies are great for funerals, memorials, birthday parties, etc...
- We are the ONLY butterfly company to include free individual release boxes with the purchase of live butterflies!
Buyers Beware! Not all butterfly companies are on the up-and-up. 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, memorial, funeral, party, or special event. 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 and painted lady 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.
