RawTernative is an air-dried alternative to raw frozen pet food from the makers of Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals, the independent pet store brand.

Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals was founded in 2007, when a group of independent pet store owners became concerned about the number of premium brands being acquired by large corporations or investment groups. Often, this led to short-cuts that prioritized profits and compromised quality. To provide their customers with a product of the high standard they demanded, these small business owners pooled their funds to create a food that would instead make the well-being of pets its only objective.

Today, with more and more pet parents choosing Raw and Freeze-Dried foods, we have created RawTernative. We wanted to offer all the benefits of raw meat but to make them more accessible, convenient, and even healthier. RawTernative is lightly air-dried, a process which maintains the nutrients and natural taste of our ingredients. Without the need to defrost or add water, RawTernative is easy to feed as a complete diet or topper, and can even be taken on the go. The texture of hearty chunks, just like real meat, is super appealing to pets too and they always gobble it up!
