We never lower our standards for our faithful four legged friends. Our dogs enjoy the cuts that are less popular (pigs feet, snout, organ meat) as well as cuts that have packaging flaws. We also utilize a local non Usda butcher to keep cost down but is not legal to sell for human consumption. Again the quality and safety is there ... but logistics prevent us from selling as a retail cut. So some packages that you see will say, “not for resale” ... those are butchered by a local butcher at a far cheaper price with less carbon footprint. We’re sure your pets will enjoy clean, humanely raised meats as much as ours do.
