Smithville, Ontario (January 11, 2020) – NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT

Big Country Raw is excited to introduce FARE GAME! A new line of raw meals and raw meaty bones specifically created just for cats and kittens.

We are launching FARE GAME with 3 New Complete Raw Meals:

  • Chicken and Salmon with Beef.  A blend of Ontario chicken meat and bone, with wild-caught Canadian salmon, beef organ meats, barley grass, and wheatgrass.
  • Duck and Quail with Lamb.  A blend of Ontario duck and quail meat and bone, with lamb organ meats, barley grass, and wheatgrass.
  • Rabbit with Pork.  A blend of Canadian rabbit with pork organ meat with barley grass and wheatgrass. 

Fare Game raw meals are formulated to meet the NRC’s (National Research Council) dietary requirements for cats of all life stages and require no additional supplementation. As with all our recipes, we continue to recommend an additional source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids such as Thrive Herring Oil (a popular choice) or Thrive Hemp Seed Oil (plant-based option) for maximum absorption and distribution of nutrients, but also improved skin and coat health.

All Fare Game recipes are finely ground with increased lean muscle meat (minimum 75%), increased organ meat (maximum 15%) and lower bone content (maximum 10%) in comparison to our other Big Country Raw recipes.

Fare Game recipes also include barley grass and wheatgrass (two new ingredients that are now added to our Dinner formulations as well).  Barley grass and wheatgrass are harvested as sprouted leaves or shoots (not the seed or grain) and are a rich source of essential B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, and zinc.

Packaged in ½ lb portions each 2 lb carton contains 4 vacuum-sealed packs.

Fare Game 2 lb cartons will be included in our Frequent Buyer Program – Buy 12 Get 1 Free.
