My name is Jennifer.
I am a born and raised Virginia girl who up and got married to the Alabama boy and thus started our interesting life! We have 1 Maine Coon cat, Rylan (~7 yrs), a Doberman Pinscher, Remy (4 yrs in March) and a Shire gelding named Samwise (7 yrs). Remy has had a sensitive tummy his whole life and none of the kibbles have sat well. Diarrhea should have been his name! I've been researching raw feeding for quite awhile when his health started to deterioriate shortly after our move to Walker County.
I've reached out to BARF and raw groups on Facebook, but I figured I'd tried a forum like this for any other help. So far my searching for sources of bones and organs is turning up very little. I'm looking at freezers on Craigslist and asking around at local processors for scraps, leftovers etc or what they'll let me buy. I'm gathering a list of ethnic grocers and butchers to see if I can get the harder to find things.
Where do you guys buy your green tripe?
