Anyone here from the Puyallup or Tacoma area in Washington find a good source for chicken and turkey cuts? I am striking out so far. Tried a butcher and multiple grocery stores. I have reached out to a Yahoo group for Raw feeding but I am not getting any luck there. Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

I Need Help Finding A Place To Buy In Bulk!
Posted 26 January 2014 - 05:11 AM
I live in Baltimore, MD (really in one of the Baltimore counties). I have been searching for 2 months of a good cost effective place to buy bulk meat from. I have 1 70+-lbs dog of my own (an Amstaff/Mastiff mix); & I foster dogs as well. My current foster (just 1 right now...smiles) is about a 60-65-lbs Pit Bull Mix. There are really no small grocers here & none of the chain grocers will sell a case at a reasonable price. Their are no butchers, and no distributers who'll sale to the public that I've been able to find. If anyone can help point me in a good direction, I will be most grateful. Buying from regular grocery stores has me store hopping to find the sales, which isn't that good sometimes when I need to buy 100-110-lbs of meat per month sometimes more if I have more than 1 foster; so I'm urgently trying to stock up my big upright freezer, so I'm not crunched when unexpected fosters arise. Thanks!!!

And don't under-estimate the power of Freecycle & Craigslist postings. There are lots of people out there with meat they are not going to eat who feel awful about tossing it. I picked up about 50# of deer meat this past Sunday from a woman whose neighbor keeps giving it to her - she doesn't like it, but felt it was impolite to refuse & hated throwing it away:)
Not only have I gotten free meat from these postings, but I have also gotten really good information from other raw feeders about where to buy. And I've made some great contacts with deer processors & small farmers who do their own butchering.
Do I get some wacko responses, too. Absolutely, but most of the people have been very helpful. I always include pictures of my dogs to grab people's attention. If I can get some of my meat for free, that leaves more $$$ for the stuff I have to buy and really helps stretch the budget.
