As I was at my store Saturday, I once again was reminded how many people still don’t know about feeding raw foods to our pets. People are surprised that feeding raw can be an option for them.

Their family owns a coconut farm in the Philippines, and have harvested coconut for generations. So, these sisters know a ton about coconut!
