Helpful Tips and Reminders
• 🐕 Most dogs favor red meat best so this product typically works well with dogs of all sizes.
• 🐈 Some cats will eat red meats, but others simply will not tolerate it. If you chose this product for your cat, start with a small amount, and introduce slowly.
• Red meat can cause dark brown stools. When incorporating more red meats in your animal’s diet, expect the stool to become darker in color.
Our Ground Beef/Bones/Organs/Tripe is one of the best products we manufacture. We primarily source from a local farm just a few miles from our home which means that this product is very fresh. I am a bit partial to this product as my husband and staff play a big role in butchering our beef. We focus on removing excesses of fat, leaving the product between a 90/10-80/20 meat to fat ratio.
One thing to keep in mind is that we are located in Northwest PA, which means that in the wintertime we are buried in snow, with grass being very limited. During our winter season, hay is supplemented. Hay in our area is usually a timothy or fescue grass which is lower in protein then a hay such as alfalfa. Because it is lower in protein most farmers either supplement with a protein block or some grains in winter months. In the summer months when there is plenty of pasture grain is usually not fed or in minimal amounts.
Our mission includes advocating for optimal health and safe handling of raw materials. Make sure to use safe handling practices and reference our Raw Food Education pages.

Cat did well with it!
By Kylie on February 3, 2024
My cat has been eating raw for awhile, and this past time I decided to try the ground beef with her! I mixed it with various other proteins to make sure to introduce it in little bits and she did great! Will definitely continue ordering this one.
By Calvin on June 10, 2022
Ferrets love this stuff. It’s hard to get ferrets to eat red meats at times… but our three love it! Adding a bit of water to it helps if it starts to dry out a bit.
Very good quality and animals enjoy it.
By Betty on December 4, 2021
Our Cat will eat this but he will leave some in his bowl. He just doesn't care for it a lot.
Excellent product the dog and cat both love
By Lindsey on November 29, 2021
This is one of my favorite Hare Today products. My picky cat will totally chow down on this, so most of it goes to her, and my dog is ecstatic to eat any leftovers.
Bought for one cat, but the other surprised me
By Jade on November 5, 2021
I bought this for my older (15ish) cat bc he loves ground beef (for hoomans). He has gone through some health stuff recently and now wont eat anything but super expensive canned food (and even that, he gets picky about), but my other kitty LOVES it, which surprised me as he never had too much interest in beef, let alone with organs, bone and tripe. He likes it the 2nd best out of the turkey, pork, and chicken grinds we've tried, with chicken being his fave atm (he also loves his 'kidney popsicles; weighed portions of frozen pork kidney). Thanks so much, Hare-Today! My tub-o-lard 12 yo kitty (not too chonky, but still overweight) has found his stride with your raw grinds and has slenderized, become more athletic and less grumpy now that he is feeling his best.
By Sarah on October 20, 2021
I have been purchasing from Hare Today for nearly five years - this beef grind is a clutch product that we can’t live without! All of my animals eat it enthusiastically (including the cat!). It is extremely clean and fresh and priced affordably. We always have a few chubs in the freezer!
come back for great feedback
By chenkun on October 8, 2021
Came back again for good feedback, my little kittens love it so much. meat itself is fresh and dense
First time try, great result
By chenkun on September 15, 2021
Feed them a little bit today and in the beginning, they were hesitant to eat, once I came back in 2 mins, they are fighting for it.
By Lillie on August 20, 2021
My cats love their raw beef from Hare Today!
My Lhasa loves it
By Linda on December 9, 2020
My Lhasa loves the beef with organs and tripe mix. Her meals are only about three ounces twice a day so I love that I’m sure she’s getting a balanced meal. She’s not a fan of offal on its own so the mix ensures she’s getting it!
Our French Loves the Beef
By Kurt on November 21, 2020
As soon as the refrigerator opens and we open up the container of meat our Frenchy goes nuts. He picks up the scent immediately. Loves his food and never a morsel left over.
Kurt from Maryland!
cats are loving this mix
By Dara on November 15, 2020
My cats love tripe but tripe smells like you know what. This mix is awesome though because you can't smell the tripe in with the meat. My cats are so happy when I feed them this mix, they gobble it up. Im also happy that I can still give them what they love (tripe) without the smell.
Thanks Hare Today!
By Rosie on October 5, 2020
We get this for our baby all the time and he never gets sick of his food. He gobbles this up in less than 2 minutes.
Cats love it!
By Meg on August 8, 2020
My two kitties have been on raw for about a year now and this is by far my kitties favorite protein!
My 17-Yr-OldD Kitty Loves It
By GINNY on May 9, 2020
I doubted my senior kitty would like it, but it's one of her favorites. She likes it when I warm it slightly and add a drop or two of water to it. Very happy with this product.
Nicky love coarse ground beef
By Lynn on November 24, 2019
He becomes very enthusiastic when I give him coarse ground beef. I love to watch him gnawing on the pieces of bone, and it's so good for his teeth and gums. At almost 15 he's never had a dentistry.
My cats don’t like it -can I cook it for them?
By Izabela on September 24, 2019
Despite my cats not liking raw beef this is a great, clean, very fresh product.
I am wondering if it can be cooked and after adding supplements served to cats as cooked meal for they like to eat canned beef cat food. However I am not sure if it is a good idea because it contains bone and I know cooked bone should never be served to animals.? Can anybody advise? Thanks
Response from Hare Today: Please do not feed cooked bones to your pets. If you must cook then only cook products that are boneless.
As mentioned on our Raw Food for Cats page, some cats will eat red meats, but others simply will not tolerate it.
My cat loves beef
By Lynn on March 30, 2019
Nicky loved beef which surprised me when I first gave it to him. He just tucked in and had a really great meal! This made me very happy.
By Abby on February 26, 2019
This is Mac's go-to meal. I order the 5-lb mixture and divide it into 8 portions. It's nice that the ratios of organ and muscle meat are already calculated making raw feeding very easy and convenient for dog owners. Mac is a 50-lb 2 year old standard poodle. He usually eats it in 2 minutes (or less).
Three dogs love it!
By Jackie on February 10, 2019
All of our dogs love this stuff. Two of them will eat pretty much any meat, but our female is not the biggest fan of cow organs. However, everything is so well incorporated in this stuff that she doesn't even hesitate. Love that it has tripe as well, you can definitely smell it (which is probably why this is so successful at meal time)!
My Cat Loves This!
By autumn on January 13, 2019
My girl cat isn't the biggest fan of red meat but my boy cat absolutely loves red meat so he's definitely more prone to licking his bowl clean when I feed them this.
By Sandra on May 14, 2018
The beef is always fresh and looks like I can grill it up myself, of course it has bones and organs in it, so I’m going to pass.
The cats enjoy it and now harass me when I’m eating beef from the store because they think I’m eating their food.
By Destiny on May 13, 2018
My dogs go nuts over this! I love that it's ready made and balanced. Perfect for when someone else is watching the dogs and their food doesn't have to be "messy" and "gross" LOL
Very good quality
By Gina on April 27, 2018
Red meat is not my cats favorite right now as he just picks at it. But the quality and freshness of this product is very good.
Easy as it can be
By Paul on April 25, 2018
Three dogs. Two meals a day. About 10oz a meal. You do the math. That's about two 55lb boxes a month.
But it's really not so much the expense that gets you (try pre-made patties for that, with lower quality and frequent freezer burn added in for good measure). Its the amount of time and effort required.
Anyway, this beef/organs/bone blend makes this as easy as it can possibly be. I buy plastic containers, and once a week or so cut 24-hr thawed b/o/t/b blend into portions with a butcher's hacksaw. Usually I add in something else, like more ground organs, an alpaca chop, maybe a little liver or lung.
Then the little containers go back in the freezer, to be fridge thawed 24 hrs before serving.
Not easy, but easy as it can be, and better quality and cheaper by far than pre-made patties form the pet store.
My cats eat it
By Lesa on February 9, 2018
My cats have always loved beef. I wasn’t sure if they would like the tripe in their beef, but they eat it just the same! I portion out little meatballs once it’s thawed enough to work with, put six balls in a ziploc, and freeze. Then I just have to pull out one bag for a days worth of food. My three cats love Hare Today!
By Joyce on August 15, 2017
I have 3 kids who happen to be boston terriers. They adore this food and it makes their poop perfect! I order the 5 pound fine 55 lbs at a time and I pull them out of my deep freezer and let that thaw in a plastic bag in the fridge, about 24 hours, just enough to be cut able, then slice into pounds. I then repackage in plastic 4 lbs, put one in a glass bowl for my babies- each day I thaw one out in the fridge so I always have food on the ready. We also tried the cod. GROSS to me. THEY LOVED IT! You would think they caught it how they acted.
Lower bone content suitable for cats prone to constipation
By Doris on July 10, 2017
This product has only 6% bone so it is a good choice for those with cats prone to constipation, especially if you don't want to dilute the grind with boneless meat. I mix in individual vitamins and supplements (following a recipe), but you can also use a pre-mix (e.g., Alnutrin) to make it easier.
Some cats dislike tripe, but our three cats don't seem to mind it. Tripe is a good source of digestive enzymes and probiotics if your cat will eat it!
The quality of the meat is superb, exactly what you can always expect from Hare Today! Unfortunately, one of our three cats doesn't seem to tolerate raw beef very well, so we most likely won't be repurchasing this product.
Quality and convenience!
By Sarah on July 2, 2017
What's not to love about this product?! It's everything in one easy peasy meal! I especially like the lower bone percentage in this one as both of my dogs tend to get constipated easily. The quality of the product is outstanding... so much better than anything out there! I've haven't ordered anything that hasn't been top notch!
By Tara on June 21, 2017
It took my dogs a short time to get used to this ground (perhaps from the smell, as it is kinda stinky...I assume from the tripe) but now it is one of their favorites. Perfect moisture content (not to wet or dry).
Beef was a Nala Favorite
By Michael on June 4, 2017
Nala loves all the Hare-today ground meats, the 5lb beef tub we ordered was amazing as advertised. Will be purchasing again!
All Packaged Neatly Together ...
By Esther on April 20, 2017
I love mixing my dog's raw meats with other types of meats, organs, and offal, but I love even more that HT offers Ground Beef (which is a staple in many raw households) already come prepackaged and portioned with organs, tripe and bone! Simple done right.
By jing on March 28, 2017
I have tried several brands of raw diet for my cat. HT is so far my favorite(also my cat's). I tried the Blue Ridge Beef's natural mix which contains beef and green tripe, but my cat refused to eat it and even I cannot stand it because of the smell. So I worried a lot before giving him the ground one with organs and tripe. But he likes it lot. I use alnutrion along with the meat and finally am comfortable that he is having a complete and healthy diet now. Thanks HT!
By Katrina on March 21, 2017
My 11 month old Tuxedo kitten loves her beef! I like watching her eat it and chew it and see her having to slow down on her food instead of inhaling her food like she does with Darwin's. I still give her Darwin's but I like giving her variety. She has also gotten Rabbit and Venison from Hare-Today & she loves both!
Amazing quality you can see
By Amanda on February 21, 2017
Have been feeding good quality raw for a while but when my local supplier stopped delivering I tried HT and boy I am blown away by the difference. My dog was getting a bone and meat blend before -- I love that she can get meat, bone, organs and tripe in one package with this product. Also the convenience of getting tripe mixed in is great and it doesn't smell bad at all. Her coat is so silky now and she's stopped shedding. I love the changes and we are hooked on this product.
By Angela M on February 8, 2017
Beautiful color, wonderful smell. Not as popular with the cats but a favorite of my little feral mama, who doesn't care for 'fuzzy" food. A work in progress, she'll take bits of this from my hand and that's quite a victory.
Kitty's don't like tripe?
By Jessica on February 6, 2017
I ordered this not realizing cats generally don't like tripe. I only ordered a couple lbs. Of this to offset the amount of bone in his chicken. My 10 month old kitten really enjoys it. He doesn't try and steal it like he does rabbit but he really enjoys this. The meat was nice and fresh, I wanted to make a hamburger out of it...I didn't however.
By Kelly on December 19, 2016
A great option for an all-in-one meal. Easy and a no brainer for feeding the right amouts!
Perfect for travel
By Kelly on December 19, 2016
I always order the 5 lb tubes of this but wanted to try the 2 lb for traveling. Packed really easy and thawed quicker. Another great product!
By Laura on December 7, 2016
We are a 3 large dog household and use this and the goat blend as our ruminant animal staples. The 5lb chubs are the way to go! Great quality and not super fatty like you find from other raw suppliers.
By Kolby on September 26, 2016
My dog experiences no negative digestive effects with the beef grind. Thawing the meat in the refrigerator out of its packaging in a bowl with a lid works well. I can easily portion what I need for a meal and put the amount for the next meal back in the refrigerator in a plastic bag.I am very satisfied with this product.
Really nice product
By anna on September 17, 2016
I just ordered this for the first time, as I am a new customer with Hare Today.
It has a nice texture, consistency and look. I really liked it and hoped it would agree with my dog, but for some reason, either beef or tripe of both don't agree with his digestive system. I have bought beef blended with tripe from other raw food sellers, and those also don't agree with. It seems to upset his stomach and he gets bad indigestion. I do recommend this product. It's the nicest looking beef and tripe blend that I have seen. I just can't give it to my big boy. Tripe is so good for animals.
Response from Hare Today: When introducing a new food try adding tablespoon or so to the raw food they are eating and keep upping the new amount a bit over time to acclimate a dog or cat with a sensitive tummy. Putting the meat in ice cube trays and freezing makes convenient small serving sizes to use. Once frozen pop out and store in a freezer bag or container.
By Amanda on June 23, 2016
My girls really like the ground beef.and it helps that it's pre mixed
Simple to Feed!
By Alexander on June 5, 2016
At first I was unsure about pre ground; now I feed it regularly. It is good to know the percentages of bone, meat, organ, tripe and very conveniently packaged. Casey (my dog) absolutely loves it!
My cat, on the other hand, is yet to switch to raw; I'll be trying some ground combos (including this one) to try and tempt her this week!
By Sandy on May 23, 2016
I was very apprehensive when I got brave yesterday afternoon and decided to cut some tripe off the "log" so it could defrost overnight and would be ready to feed this morning. So...this morning I took it out of the container that I had sealed it up (worrying about the smell being in the fridge), and put a small portion in with Boo's breakfast. Of course, I had to smell it first because everyone had said how this product REAKS and I wanted to find out for myself (that's how I roll).
Anyway, I was absolutely SHOCKED!!! It's no worse a smell than some other gross stuff I've had the pleasure(?) of being around, and Boo LOVED it! This will definitely be a staple in our house from now on.
Don't be worried...check it out! When you see how much your animals enjoy it, I know you'll want more!
My Dogs absolutely LOVE this stuff
By Brad on February 23, 2016
I have an Olde English Buldogge and a Boerboel. Both have been raw fed Hare Today since they were 8 weeks old. They both love this product and the quality shows in their coats as well as their health.
Dogs love it
By Lisa on February 21, 2016
My dogs couldn't get enough of this! 4 stars because the dogs loved it and the cat enjoyed it as well but couldn't keep it down.
Easy to feed
By Terra on February 10, 2016
Love the ground foods, already in easy to feed tubes of food. My dogs love it, so fresh and already ground and ready to go. We have 2 puppies and 3 small dogs and I can easily cut open the tube and split up between them. Prices and quality are great as always,
Nice ground beef including tripe!
By Yee on December 15, 2015
I remember buying this and the kittens fell in love with it. I'm guessing it was the tripe! It didn't smell like the usual tripe which I am glad about. I need to buy this again, its grounded already and will make things easier to feed when I am in a rush!
My Pittie loves this!
By dana ann on December 1, 2015
This is a favorite of my Pittie, Scooby! It is always shipped fresh and frozen. He is sensitive to antibiotics and preservatives from grocery store meat. Thank goodness for Hare Today!
Dogs love it
By Maria Clara on November 23, 2015
This one's a staple in our household. My dogs love the ground beef blended with the tripe. They get constipated with too much bone, but this blend is perfect for them. They love it!
Great and Easy!
By Kelly on November 12, 2015
I love this product! It is super convenient that Tracy has ground everything together. It's easy to travel with, able to carry less items. And super easy when using a pet sitter or boarding. Able to dump out in one setting and get all the nutrients. Also, my dog's teeth have gotten older so this is a great way for her to get bone content. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!
A good grind for those who are prone to constipation!
By catseatingmeat on September 21, 2015
Out of my trio, I have one gal who is very prone to constipation. Tracy's Beef grind is such an easy addition to my rotation, as it's only 6% bone! I always appreciate the transparency Tracy brings -- love that it contains tripe along with lung too! Literature shows that electrically-charged organs contains a lot of taurine -- that includes the lungs! The consistency is rather tough, but I do appreciate the rather "dry" texture and so do my cats!
By Andrew on August 19, 2015
My Bernese Mountain Dog absolutely loves this! He gobbles it up!!
And I know that he is getting everything he needs for his raw diet!
By Renee on April 29, 2015
I decided to purchase the beef in a 5# chub and I'm very pleased. Product came still frozen and the service was great. I'm pleased with the ground beef mix because there is 6% bone and my dog can't tolerate too much bone. Thanks Tracy for such wonderful products.
By Renee on April 29, 2015
I'm very happy with this product. My sheltie is healthy and happy eating raw meats from Hare-Today.
By Liza on February 18, 2015
I highly recommend this ground beef mixture. My dogs love it! I have tried to make my own mixtures, but my dogs are never quite as happy. I particularly like its coarse texture, as it allows me to see all the good ingredients they're getting.
By Jennifer on February 16, 2015
Our cats love this course blend beef. We add beef pieces so that they have something to chew. We alternate this with rabbit and venison for variety.
By Renee on February 14, 2015
I am very pleased with this product because of the percentage of bone. (80% meat, 7% tripe, 7% organ [heart, liver, lung, and kidneys] and 6% bone, fine ground.) I've purchased from another on-line raw dog food and their bone content is 10% which is too high for my 23# sheltie. Thanks Tracy for such a wonderful product which helps keep my dog healthy! Renee & Rio
By Joan on September 17, 2014
My Cats LOVED this!!
By Nancy on August 30, 2014
Wonderful product! My 4 year old golden retriever is in excellent condition, not overweight, and full of energy. He loves the meat I feed him twice daily, along with a little bit of kibble. You can't find anything like this in a store....definitely worth going on line to order! And such great service! Product CONSISTENTLY arrives well packaged and in a timely manner. Five stars!
By Laura on August 6, 2014
My dog eats this food almost exclusively. She is lean and active. I've never seen a dog jump as high. My vet says that she is in extremely good physical condition. I do walk her every day, but I attribute her excellent condition primarily to her great diet. In the past I've had dogs that I fed conventional dog food, and even though I walked them frequently, they tended to get chubby. That is not a problem when dogs are fed raw meat.
By Karen on July 26, 2014
My whippets love this! Our whippets are performance dogs who lure course so keeping them in their best running condition is very important. We have tried other companies and we will stay with Hare Today because of the quality of the products!!!
By Stacey on July 24, 2014
My dog LOVES when beef comes around in her meal rotation. It really is her favorite, and I feel good giving it to her. Great quality stuff, and so nice to have the organs, tripe and bones included for optimum nutrition.
By Clare on April 12, 2014
My cat didn't like this. But she's picky, so I wasn't too surprised. This would make a good complete meal for any cat or dog that likes beef, and red meat is important in their diets.
RESPONSE: Although some cats may eat red meats most do better with RABBIT, POULTRY, CAVIES AND MICE. Most cats will not eat tripe so I dont recommend red meat grinds that contain tripe for cats. Dogs on the other hand love tripe.
By Ellen on March 12, 2014
My dog has some food sensitivities but she has always liked and tolerated this product well.
By Debbie on February 21, 2014
I have 5 dogs and they all love the beef the most. Turkey, Chicken, and Pork after that. Bison is pretty good too. My dogs are healthy and happy eating raw foods. I am so happy I found Hare Today.
By Dorothy on January 15, 2014
My dogs love all your ground blends so far. You might call them spoiled. I have to give them a quick sautÃ© on each side with a little olive oil. I created two monsters. But, they are worth it!
By Abbas on January 6, 2014
My Whippet absolutely loves it and so do I because I no longer have to deal with mixing tripe into his food! I'm hoping for more ground mixes with tripe like this one as we try to rotate protein sources and have variety.
By Jeanne on December 15, 2013
Hands down my Greyhound's favorite! He has "issues" with turkey, chicken, & venison as well as salmon. Finding Hare Today has been a God send. He thrives on the beef, rabbit, sardine & goat grinds, and has become a Green Tripe addict. Thank you for offering such exceptional products!!!
By Jill on November 16, 2013
Great product, my dogs love it. They get it at least three times a week! My cat isn't a fan but that's okay I heard your not suppose to give a lot of beef to cats anyways. So that means more for my dogs! Having everything blended makes packing meals for trips a lot easier. But I still like RMB for cleaning teeth.
By Nicole on November 4, 2013
I have been feeding my 3 large dogs this for almost a year now and not only do they love it, they are thriving! They are now at their healthy weights and their skin and hair are so much healthier too. The package always arrives completely frozen.
By Nancy on September 6, 2013
My golden retriever is very food oriented, and is ALWAYS hungry! The ground beef/organs/tripe make him go WILD...but he is so satisfied after eating (I mix it with kibble) that he doesn't \"beg.\" His weight is PERFECT and he is a beautiful dog, with a gorgeous coat and a happy, willing-to-work personality. He does agility, and is a therapy dog. I wouldn't consider feeding any other way!
RESPONSE I would not recommend mixing the raw with kibble as kibble digests much slower [and has inappropriate ingredients in it] and could cause digestive issues. If you must feed kibble you should feed boneless meats only mixed in or feed 1 meal of raw and then a kibble meal 12 hours apart.
By Jeanne on August 1, 2013
I just received my 1st order & I'm very impressed with the quality of all the items. My Greyhound couldn't scarf this mix down fast enough! I will definitely be a returning customer.
By Marina on June 21, 2013
This was a hit with my puppy. She licks the bowl clean every time! Thank you for such a great product!
By Debra on June 15, 2013
This is a winner for all three of my dogs. They just love it and it's part of over weekly rotation of meats they are feed.
By Kelly on April 21, 2013
I feed this regularly to my mid-sized dog, and when it's delivered she goes crazy just from recognition even while it is still frozen and packaged in the box! My 6 month old kitten - who was next to dead when I rescued her from a field at no older than 6 weeks and the weight of a 3-week-old - also goes bonkers for it. However, I have allowed her to have it only sparingly because I'm not sure how well her young digestive system will handle it. So far, she can only tolerate raw food - she throws up and gets digestive problems any time when I've tried to skimp or rush and just give her dry food or a high-quality, cooked meat canned food. So far she has handled this green beef fine. However, my other cat, also a rescue, turns up her nose in disdain. The one time she did eat some when I was out of other raw food, she finally got hungry, did try some and promptly threw it up (at which point I got out the emergency dried food). So, my own experimenting has taught me: my dog lives for it, my wild kitten adores it and seems to do fine on it, but my 14-year old cat isn't so keen.
By Kelly on April 21, 2013
My 45 lb Bearded Collie mix LOVES this food. I'm sure the straight-from-the-farm odor contributes to her pleasure. The first time I opened a bag, I was concerned that maybe it had gone off due to the pungent smell, so I emailed to double check and was reassured that it was due to the green tripe. Later, I learned that batches vary considerably in their "fragrance" level and that my introductory bag had been particularly odorous. To me, it doesn't smell bad, just as if my kitchen were inhabited by cows! Just close your eyes, inhale, and waft away on the smell to your favorite farm! :)
By Diantha on February 14, 2013
This is a great way to supplement my dogs diet and make sure he is getting all the "greens" that he needs to balance out his nutritional requirements. I stuff his kongs with it and he loves it!!
By Bruce on February 10, 2013
This product was exactly what we needed for our Dog. It had all of the ingredients necessary to make it a one scoop, then add the veggie/fruit mix, and voila a perfect meal. I would add a supplement as well, but it was so easy to use this. And our dog Louie loved it!
Response from Tracy: No need to add fruits or vegetables to a carnivores diet. I address this on the FAQ page.
Thank you for your review.
By Patricia on January 28, 2013
Our German Shepherd LOVES this mix. She was starting to turn her nose up to organs that were in chunk form so we decided to give this a try. She gobbles it up in no time. Thanks so much for putting together a nice mix with everything she needs for her diet. The packaging makes it really easy to use too!

Oscar, my rescue Great Dane came to us with some severe digestive issues. Poor guy had been eating Ol' Roy for most of his life. He has some issues with digesting whole bone pieces, and I have to keep his bone content at about 5-7% (otherwise he gets severely constipated). This mix is perfect for him! I'm amazed how much my dogs love your products, and even as a first time purchaser I can see how much work is put into the whole order. This is awesome, and I really appreciate how much care you put into these products for our furry family members!

Our Rottweiler loves this combination. We put a sweet potato in or some cooked broccoli with it and she gobbles it up. Our animals make minimal trips to the vet feeding them these foods. We are very happy with the quality of Hare Today!

This product is the awesome! Not only because Jersey loves it, but also for boarding and traveling. Whenever I have to leave Jersey at boarding or with a pet sitter while I am out of town, I ALWAYS use this. Makes it so easy for them to just plop it out of a baggy. No measuring, weighing, etc. And for traveling, even more convenient! Just have it shipped to where you're going, and walla, no shopping for food or measuring. I do not use for regular feedings, but this is my go-to for traveling.
Tracy is the best, and will always help you with anything you need!

This meat and organ mix is great!!! I have fed beef or tripe separately over the last 15 years but never had the opportunity to get it combined like Here Today offers:)

This product is my favorite! As a new raw feeder, I'm still nervous about giving my dogs whole bones. Plus my dog Goatie has very few teeth and just swallows everything whole, bones and all. So to be able to feed them a ground product that contains everything they need -- and doesn't give me whole-bone-anxiety -- is such a relief! This way I know they're eating healthy right now, while I slowly branch out into "wholer" raw foods as my comfort level allows! :)
Oh, and I've tried a number of beef meat/bones/organs blends, and this is my fussy girl Luna's favorite. Plus I like that it's clean and easy to feed, not sticky and soft and messy like many of the other ground meats. I'm enjoying feeding all kinds of other meats to my non-fussy boys, but this one is me & Luna's favorite! :)

After feeding raw for almost 3 years, a new job meant less time and energy for food preparation, and a new location meant less reliable sources for affordable meat. I tried to feed another food, a dehydrated formula, only to have allergy-related skin conditions (from the veggies) return, and my dog started losing weight. Then I discovered Hare Today, and found this beef blend to be just what I was looking for. My dog is allergic to many meat sources as well (chicken, turkey, pork), so this beef blend fit the bill for convenience, affordability, and his own satisfaction! After feeding this (along with fish and the tripe/spleen blend) for a month, his skin has cleared up and he is at a much better weight. My dog and I couldn't be happier with this product!

I swear by this food.. I am so glad I found Tracy and the the raw food diet for my little girl.. she just loves the food.. she just gobbles is down..

My dogs love red meat (beef, venison, mutton, rabbit, goat, etc) and my checkbook loves the beef. I've had several deliveries, and it's always frozen solid - even after being on the porch for a couple of hours (not that I'd recommend it). Feeding them the best complete food I can doesn't get any easier than this!

My 2 GSD puppies love this food. The product was packed great and completely frozen (2 day zone) when we received it.

I have been using this ground beef/organs/tripe and bone for awhile now. I got stuck and bought some 73% grocery store ground beef for my dogs,( because I forgot to place my monthly order) MY dogs got sick and vomited the supermarket beef. I can't believe how good Hare-todays meats are. They are way better for our dogs than grocery store meats. Makes you wonder what WE are eating..... kind of frightening.
My dogs have been healthier and smell clean now, and not doggie anymore- since eating the Hare Today products. Their teeth are now white and clean and they do not have bad breath, and do not scratch like maniacs anymore. Thank You for the great foods for my girls.

My dogs love this meat, and wolf it down as soon as I release them. I love the convenience of having all the essential ingredients ready to serve. Feeding raw is so easy now, thanks Hare Today!!

My dog and my friend's dogs love this mix! The go gaga for it all the time!!! And it's great that it's on sale now!

Great product. I love it because it is complete, beef, organ meat, tripe, (which they love), as well as bone for calcium. My dogs love it and it gives them a great shiny coat. I cut it up into individual pattie size and freeze them separately for easy feeding.

Thanks for offering such a high quality ground beef product that includes bone and organs and is also antibiotic/hormone free. As with all of your products, my dogs love it.

Yay, Hare Today! This product is wonderful for my dog who refuses to eat bone-in chicken. Plain ground beef isn't good for them -- they need the bone. So this has helped make sure my dog is getting the bone content she needs.
By Elizabeth on March 17, 2009
Thanks SO MUCH for including ground beef w/ bone. I have an older dog who refuses to completely convert to raw--she will NOT eat whole bone-in chicken like the other dogs. So she's eating mostly ground chicken/organs/bone and it's great to have another inexpensive alternative that includes bone. Before, I had to give her plain ground beef and add eggshells to try to get the "bone" content up.
Hare Today is SUCH a great place! It is making this whole transition much easier for ME!

Great for dogs but I didn't really like this for the cats because as the description says, the bones aren't finely ground. They made a mess with it spitting out the bones all over the place. The tripe also smells nasty so my picky cat wouldn't touch it. I'm all for feeding cats chunks and some bones, but obviously a domestic cat isn't going to hunt and kill a cow in the wild. So personally, I'm worried about a tooth getting broken because my cats ARE used to chewing bones..so they might eventually crunch down on it like they do with rabbit and break a tooth on it.
