The Evolution Of RAWF - Introducing Acabonac Pet

What’s in a name?

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.

Does Rawf convey who we really are?

It became clear to go back to our roots and make a change.

Farewell Rawf, hello Acabonac Pet.

Now that the name was settled, we looked deeper into what our customers were saying about our dog food; offer more variety!

More than beef…

We listened to your requests for meals made with meats other than beef. We accepted the challenge. As a small farm, finding a solution was certainly a challenge, but we knew that we wanted to make it as easy as possible to feed your dogs the Acabonac way, but we had one big hurdle…

We have the beef, but what about the other meats?

As we plan forward, one day, we hope to be able to farm our own chicken, pork, and lamb, but we also realize that we need solutions for our clients now, so we did our homework and partnered with trusted local providers of chicken, pork, and lamb.

And today, we are proud to say that, whether your dog prefers beef from our Acabonac farms, chicken, lamb, or pork from our partners’ farms, we have a meal for them. Our promise continues to make meals for your dogs the Acabonac way; fresh, raw, with human grade meats, fruits, and vegetables. Complete and balanced. Locally produced. Delivered to your door.

 About our new meals – variety is the spice of life, and a key to better pet health!

We have our preferences, and so do our dogs. Some of our customers shared that they wanted a meal with same meat that they currently prefer. Other customers were looking to change their dog’s food due to meat sensitivities and were looking for alternatives. And then we had clients with dogs that are finicky about their food; we needed to provide a meal that they couldn’t refuse!

Some pet parents want to offer their dogs a variety. And the beauty of feeding raw is that you can have your dog sample all our meals without a transition period like conventional pet food.

We want to be the all-inclusive brand that offers you a variety of solutions and great nutrition for your dogs.

Feed raw with confidence! As always, our meals provide complete and balanced nutrition for your dog and are pre-portioned for your convenience.

We invite you and your dog to sample all our new meals!

Why chicken, pork, and lamb?

  • Chicken is a lean source of protein and is the most popular meat that dogs love.
  • Pork is the tastiest meat! Great for the finicky ones.
  • Lamb is high in protein and a great option for dogs with meat sensitivities.
