As with most issues, people “get it” quickly when presented with clear, indisputable facts. That’s usually the case with people who learn about the health benefits of grass-fed beef and environmental benefits of sustainable farming.
Savvy pooch parents are embracing the raw pet food movement! The benefits of feeding a raw diet speak for themselves. Many vets and pet nutritionists are also tremendous advocates for this great way of feeding dogs.
There is a misconception that feeding your dog a dry kibble diet is safer than feeding raw. There are daily safety recalls on dry kibble dog food for a myriad of reasons. Just because it is dry does not mean it ensures safety.
While most dogs have a love for eating that manifests daily in their ability to scarf up everything they come across - even, in some cases, things that aren’t strictly food - some dogs go against the stereotype and are finicky about what they eat.
When we first launched our dog food, we loved the name RAWF, short and sweet. But when we looked at it more closely, we asked ourselves, “Does it really convey who we are and what we are all about?” After all, we are Acabonac Farms, a small farm on Long Island, NY. We raise the best beef in the most sustainable way. We are all about supporting our local community by producing locally. And we make food for dogs the Acabonac way; fresh, raw, with human grade meats, fruits, and vegetables.
For many people, feeding the dog is a chore they make as convenient as possible. But once you’ve discovered the advantages of nutrient-dense raw dog food, it’s hard to justify putting convenience over your dog’s health.

Raw dog food made from healthy beef, vegetables and fruit is better for your dog in almost every way when compared to kibble, including dental health. While eating kibble can cause dogs to develop teeth problems over the years, raw dog food and meaty bones can keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy.
One of the promises RAWF makes to customers is that our dog food travels “from our ranch to their bowl.” But some might wonder exactly how that works. We thought we’d share some insight into what you can expect from raw dog food delivery.
For some dogs, obesity can quickly become an issue. And yes, that falls on you, dog owner! The good news is there are steps you can take to minimize the risk of obesity in your dog. The key is to stick to those steps.
What’s the best raw dog food? We at RAWF think it’s what we produce on our Long Island farm. Of course, we understand that consumers trying to make a buying decision need a little more than our assurances.
