Ren’s Canadian Brand Spotlight: Big Country Raw
Located in Smithville, Ontario, Big Country Raw was born out of Rob and Geraldine Brouwer’s desire to feed their dogs and growing puppies a nutritious raw food diet. They started off by making raw pet food for their kennel, Big Country Kennels, and later opened their store in 2012. Since then, they have been committed to producing a high-quality raw pet food that is both safe and affordable.
From pasture-raised meats and free-range poultry to wild-caught fish and organic fruits and vegetables, Big Country Raw is proudly Canadian with all their products made in Canada. Supporting Canadian farmers, Big Country Raw sources all their ingredients from local farmers and processors that abide by safe and ethical standards of animal care.
Made from just meat, bone and organs, Big Country Raw Pure recipes deliver a nutritious raw meal suitable for both cats and dogs. Available in a variety of flavours, including beef, chicken, salmon, duck, lamb, rabbit, pork and turkey, each package comes with four easy-to-peel pouches to help pet parents avoid a mess. Big Country Raw also offers a variety of other raw food products for your four-legged friend, including whole quail, beef marrow bones, lake smelt, chicken necks and more!
