Local, Pastured Meat
We like to know where the ingredients for our food come from. Wherever possible we use local, pasture raised meat to ensure that the very best meat goes into our food. Already we are able to source some Beef, Pork, Lamb and Rabbit locally. We are working to increase this proportion as opportunity permits
Delaware County is old dairy farming country and as the market changed many farmers moved to pasture raised beef which is sold to restaurants throughout the North East. We work with some of these farms to source pastured beef, hearts, livers and kidneys along with smaller quantities of trachea, lung and so on. All these ingredients go to ensure that the dogs get as wide a veariety of meat and organs in their diet as possible. Beef raised on grass is much healthier than intensively reared beef. It has less fat overall and less "unhealthy" fat and cholesterol, higher concentrations of antioxidants (e.g. vitamin e) more omega 3 fatty acids and higher levels of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) among other health benefits.
