As pet owners we only want the best for our furry four-legged friends. This is why we only use the best. Our meats are never:
- denatured 3D (dying, diseased or down) or 4D (dead) meat,
- have any charcoal added,
- pasteurized either by heat or HPP (High-Pressure Pasteurization),
- preservatives, fillers, grains, premixes or anything synthetic added,
and are always the highest quality of meats, bones and organs sourced from USDA inspected farms, slaughters and processors.
Our products do not follow the AAFCO guidelines for a “complete and balanced” diet. We strongly believe in keeping all of our products as close to how nature intended without the use of artificial ingredients, supplements, minerals or vitamins–If you can’t pronounce it, it should not be an ingredient!! Instead, we only use grade-A human quality whole fruits and veggies, organs, bones, and meat to make our blends as close to how nature intended. After all, isn’t this why we feed raw? To mimic their species appropriate diet.

Statement from Koch Family Turkey Farm:
Koch’s Turkey Farm pioneered the antibiotic-free, free-range turkey market at a commercial scale in the late 1990s. ABF, as its widely known, is the foundation of Koch’s. We do not produce a single conventional turkey. These turkeys are fed an all vegetarian diet, NEVER administered antibiotics or growth hormones, and live in an enhanced environment on one of our independent family farms. All Koch’s turkeys are Certified Humane and are given outdoor access.
