Very, very good prices with lots to pick and choose from. If it exceeds your price point, leave it behind! Here's the bulk supplier I get my food from--you can compare and see that those prices look quite good overall. Score for you!

OK, Todd, I'll do you one better! :wink: Second month in a row, Kim, my local CSA farmer handed me at least 20-25 lbs of lamb hearts, liver, tongues, and kidneys--for free! SCORE!!!! Pasture raised, organic. I LOVE Kim! All shrink wrapped in individual, 4 or 8 oz portions. Unreal!

PS--.29/lb for anything is awesome. Cali chomps and crunches drumsticks. I've only given her two--they were at the bottom of the bags of quarters--but she did just fine with them. Enjoy!

Apologies to Spooky for the hijack. Just had to share. :)

trust me. you want a standup. lol.
I have one of each. I love the chest for storing meat that isn't portioned out, but the standup is the only way to go for portioned meals.

Really, I have a chest freezer that has partitions and baskets, I think it works great for the dogs food. I use the other standup freezer for our food.

Quick review they look pretty good. While I can get some of the same/similar prices it is having to shop the grocery sales. Having a convenient way to order and pick up a months worth at a time would be really great, especially if you pool your order with some one else for variety.

Personal preference I guess. Mine didn't come with all kinds of dividers, just two small baskets that hardly hold anything. Other than that it might as well be a big box.
Having two dogs on raw, both of which eat very different amounts (one eats 1/2lb a day, and one eats 1 1/2lbs a day) I don't like to have to dig in the chest freezer for what I'm looking for.
I like to use the standup and I have plastic bins on the shelves to separate what's what. Each shelf is a different meat, and I have a "grissom bin" on each shelf so his smaller baggies of food are easy to get.

Stand ups are great, but they are more $ if you buy them new. I just got a 7.0 cu. ft. commercial grade stand up on Craig's list for $100. The people were moving to CA. They wanted $150, and dropped the price before I even asked. It's like new, and is even kind of cute. :smile:

Linda, I noticed you live in MA also. I was wondering where you get your meat? I am spending way too much at the grocery store!!

I bought my 5cuft chest freezer for $150 new, and my full sized used, but in great condition stand up, auto defrost, for $80 on CL.

I have been researching raw for some time. The difficult part for me has been finding meats in my area that are a good price. The link you provided do they ship the meat or is it just a local business? As I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma would be one heck of a drive to get some meat from them. :)

Soonercaddie, there are quite a few raw feeder co op groups in TX, and I think the one in Dallas/Ft Worth is probably closest to you. Check out the Raw thread and Co-op list.

Thanks for the quick reply I will check it out.
I also recommend doing a google/yahoo search for wholesale meat distributors near where you live. That is where we get 90% of the meat we feed since its cheap from them, we actually don't get much from the co op here in Denver. Just a few random things, so co ops are a great resource!

Welcome to the boards, and don't hesitate with any questions or concerns about anything dog!!! :biggrin:
