local highlight: Bendele Farm
Unlike more traditional poultry farms, Bendele provides their chickens with an area equivalent of 25 sq metres of pasture each, hand-reared and slaughtered on the property to reduce stress. As one of only a small percent of organic-certified poultry farms in Australia, we feel lucky to work with these farmers to provide your pet with the best meat available. Bendele’s chicken meat, like muscle meat, organ meat and ground bone, is used in our Signature Blend and our House Lion Blend to add a protein source, as well as essential amino acids and glucosamine, which aids in bone health. The other parts of these chickens which aren’t featured in our Bella and Boots packs or on our kitchen table are great snacks and treats for your pet. Especially Bendele’s non-GMO chickens, raw bones like feet or necks are great for dental health and can provide a lot of pure nutrients outside of normal mealtimes.
Bendele Farm has been running for nearly two decades under Fred and Sarah, and has been recognised by our community for their dedication to producing high quality, delicious and ethical meat. In 2020, Bendele won the Harvey Norman’s Delicious produce awards, among other awards they have received in the past.
You can keep up with Bendele farm and everything they do on their Facebook, which includes introducing you to their personable chickens and the experience of running an organic farm. You can also read our blogs about the other farmers we work with to create our Bella and Boots packs.
Our Bella and Bootspacks are great for puppies or older dogs, whether they’ve eaten a raw food diet before or not. If you’ve made a new furry friend over the Christmas period and want their diet to supplement their gut, heart, dental, coat and skin health, and/or to combat allergies or joint pain, Bella and Boots raw food is an excellent choice for you. You can read more about the benefits of our food packs in our product description or by reaching out online or in-store at Forest Glen. We’d love to hear more about your furry friend, new or old, and anything funny, clever or unique they do. You can tag us on social media @bellaandboots or fill out our Pet of the Fortnight form here to win a 700g food pack.
