Nurturing by Nature was started because of Fred, a beautiful red boxer dog who developed Cancer. (Read more of Fred’s story on our Blog) The answer to his problem was a raw dog food diet.
From starting in the conservatory, moving to the garage, to opening the first ‘dedicated to raw feeding shop’ (in the country) in West Moors, demand has grown and we now have a production unit in Upton, Poole.
We are a small friendly and dedicated team of Staff & Family who strive to provide a wide variety of raw dog food and raw cat food products to enable you to feed the healthiest meals to your four legged friends.
We are a family run business based in Dorset, manufacturing our own range of raw food in our fully licensed DEFRA factory. We source, process, sell and advise. Priding ourselves on the quality of our raw dog food and the condition of our customer's four legged friends.
In 2004 Nurturing by Nature was founded in Nettie's Kitchen and soon after Nettie opened up the UK's first dedicated raw food shop in West moors.
Today we have two shops, a factory & a nationwide, next day delivery service.
We have advertised very little & this need to expand can be attributed to the fantastic support we have received from our customers.
Our raw cat and raw dog food diet is not a complete meal, It's is a complete diet! By feeding a variety of raw foods over the course of time you will provide your four legged friends with a natural diet that would be much the same as if they were roaming free.
This requires you the owner to be responsible & provide this variety through their meals.
At Nurturing by Nature we aim to supply this variety. We don't always have the same products and we don't always have your favourites. This a natural way of controlling your pet's meals.
Very much as commercial pet food control many cats and dogs diets by providing a complete meal. We encourage you to control your animals diet (because that's the most important part. It's not the meal it's the overall diet.)
The Nurturing by Nature raw diet is produced with ingredients sourced in person and from suppliers we can trust to provide the quality we demand. In fact many of the ingredients are intended for the human food chain. We process to the standard of the catering trade and fully comply to legislation set out by DEFRA. This in turn means that we have a fully operational & licensed processing factory here in Dorset.
We hope you will understand our passion to do the very best for your loving and loyal companions!
