Looks good at 1st glance. I sent them an email with questions & asked to be allowed to post it here. We'll see what they say.

Food sounds really good. Price is 84.50 for 20 lbs. and minimum order is 2 so your talking 169.00 + shipping unless it is sold in your state. They are in California.

leslie is there any way you could break down the cost per amount of ingredients that go into the 20 lbs. as compared to buying the food at your local butcher or healthier store and see if it equal to or costs more? Since you do a bulk shopping and cooking for your babies I thought you would be the best to do the break down. No pressure on you to do this just wondered cost comparison. If you have the time.

Depending on being able to get things on sale, it costs me about $2.00-$3.50 per lb. That is including all supplements even if they aren't in the food or used daily. I can get a raw grind to feed raw or cook at the meat market for $.55-$.85 depending on how fine its ground. Its not meat specific, meat trim & organs & small ground bones,from whatever was butchered that week. All local meats though. Rem doesn't do great with it because its usually about 1/2 beef, so I have to limit how much I use it. There are 2 fairly local people doing custom homecooked &/or raw diets here also for about $4-$6 per lb. We also have an Amish market which sells meat trim raw, & leftover cooked meat & lunchmeat ends ground [cooked] for pet food at $1.98 per lb.
ETA- I only buy organic when its on sale & 1 local store always has meat close to exp date reduced to 5 packages for $19.99. They range from 1 1/2 lbs to 3 lbs depending on what type of meat.Bone in chicken drums & thighs are always on sale here for $1 a lb too. Figuring you lose 1/3 to skin & unusable large bones its still only $1.33 a lb. A neighbor who hunts in the Pa. mts. gets me whole pork loins at $1.69 lb too. I stock up when canned fish, pumpkin etc are on sale & buy vitamins & minerals B1G1 or 1/2 off.I also buy baby food on sale.My basement & pantry look like a Costco or BJ's.

Thx leslie. Cost to do it yourself would be roughly $15 - $20 less unless one used people doing custom  home cooked then cost is equal to this new food. Would like to see them have a 'sample' amount for sale to see if the pet would even like it, though can't see why they wouldn't as it does not contain any 'yuckies'.

It does take up some man hours between the shopping & cooking & food prep. If you add in the value of your time ,the price per lb would be about the same. Agree a small sample size for trials would be good.
