Freeze-Dried Food Freedom

Believe it or not, there’s actually one thing I don’t like about frozen raw pet food – it needs power to keep it frozen. Well, at least where we live. Maybe a move to the Arctic is worth considering… But when the food supply for your animals depends on freezers,… Continue reading
