|Steve's Real Food for Pets
Steve's Real Food for Pets is a frozen raw diet for dogs and cats made from 100% human quality, unprocessed, fresh, ingredients. They were the first raw food diet sold in the USA and are the number one selling raw diet. Steve’s Real Food is a product of Steve’s Real Food in Murray, Utah. Founded by Steve Brown, creator of the Charlee Bear treat and author of See Spot Live Longer and Unlocking the Canine Ancestral Diet, Steve’s has been a pioneer in raw dog food manufacturing. Green Acres started selling Steve’s in 2002 and Green Acres owners Don and Paula Hanson have been including it in their pets’ diets ever since. They credit the quality nutrition provided by Steve’s as a major factor in their Golden Retriever Tikken’s long life of 16 years.
Since 2002 Steve’s has been under the direction of CEO Gary Bursell. His long experience in the pet food industry has made him a key player in ensuring that the Steve’s product line is the highest quality product with all natural, wholesome ingredients. Nicole Lindsley is Steve’s Vice President and a key player in marketing Steve’s. She has been the driving force behind Steve’s commitment to environmental responsibility. That includes lowering the carbon footprint of their plant, sourcing wholesome, natural and sustainable ingredients locally, a company-wide internal recycling program, and changing Steve’s packaging to a new compostable bag. Ron Haws is Steve’s Manufacturing Manager and is responsible for ensuring that every batch of Steve’s meets its quality standards and is a safe, fresh product.
We have had the pleasure of meeting Steve, Gary and Nicole in person and all three have been guests on our radio show, The Woof Meow Show (see below for podcasts of their episodes). Spending time with them has demonstrated to us that they are truly committed to providing the best quality nutrition for pets. In October of 2013 I had the opportunity to meet Ron and tour the plant where Steve’s is made in Oregon. Like the others in this company, Ron is passionate about what he does and committed to quality.
If you watch any television, you know that many pet food companies market their product aggressively. That marketing is very expensive. You won’t see an extensive and expensive marketing campaign for Steve’s because they would rather spend that money on the ingredients that go into the food you will feed your pet. Plus, they continually receive great word-of-mouth advertising straight from their customers. They want you to see the value of Steve’s Real Food in each bag and tell your friends and family. This has worked for them for years and will continue to be their primary focus. We know it works because it’s also what we do at Green Acres!
