Raw food (also known as BARF – Biologically Appropriate Raw Food) is a completely natural diet for your pets, free from processing. Dogs are carnivores – they have evolved and thrived on raw food for millennia, it is what their digestive systems were designed for.
Jody Scheckter started Laverstoke Park Farm with the goal of producing “the best tasting, healthiest food without compromise” for himself and his family. Jody says “For me, it’s simple. For thousands of years, people have evolved on a natural diet and it has only been in the last 80 years that we have starting consuming processed foods which I believe has contributed to many of the health problems people experience today. I believe it is the same for dogs; they didn’t develop over the centuries on cooked processed food and dried biscuits!”
How our Pure Raw Pet Food range came about…
“I always fed our own two Ridgebacks and miniature Yorkie on processed food. I was told about Raw Pet Food and began to research it. It all started to make sense – the same principles and philosophies applied for dogs as we have for our human health. We’ve switched our dogs to Raw Food and they have never been happier” says Jody.
Our Pure Raw Pet Food range uses the same philosophies and principles that the Farm has been built on, and includes meat, bones and offal from buffalo, beef, lamb, pork and chicken, all designed to get your dog’s tail wagging! Our products have been carefully designed to meet all the nutritional needs of your dogs (and working dogs) both at rest and at play: high in essential proteins, amino acids, fatty acids, Omega 3 & 6 ( organic grass fed meat is naturally high in omega 3 & 6), along with vitamins and minerals, all readily available in a highly digestible and natural form. A balanced raw diet can help improve your dogs health, happiness, coat, teeth and help reduce allergies. Our range supports a healthy immune system, healthy joints and strong healthy muscles and gives your dog a 100% nutritionally balanced diet.
The Pet Food is made in our own onsite dedicated pet food production plant. All products are produced and frozen on the same day to preserve quality and freshness. The range contains pure meat, offal and bone with absolutely no additives or fillers. We often use cuts of meat and offal that are less popular for humans, this means less waste which in turn reduces our carbon foot print. Our packaging is minimal and recyclable too. Laverstoke Park Farm also have an organic range alongside our conventional products. You can also choose from our “complete” range which is 100% nutritionally balanced or our “pick and mix” range which allows you the freedom to create your own unique diet for your dog/s.
