Absolutely cannot do anything but praise Honeys raw dog food. Their ethical approach, the quality of their all organic meals (yes it must be kept in the deep freeze but therefore is always truly fresh), their customer service, their genuine care and interest in their clients - both 2-legged and 4-legged - the professional advice always on the end of the phone (and you don't even have to be a Honeys customer) and their commitment to the world around us (Compassion in World Farming and the Soil Association) is outstanding. I recently lost my adored dog who was a Honeys fan and they are planting a tree for her in their 'Memoriam' wood. They have also put a piece in their quarterly newsletter 'The Alternative Dog' (cats are included too tho!!) which is a marvellous, informative and often funny mini-magazine. I found the beef a bit rich for my dog but the lamb and chicken were adored. Advice on getting the diet quite right is always immediate on the phone or by email. They are truly an inspirational company in every way.

We've fed our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever Honey's Out of Season food for about 5 years and now added a Toller puppy, now 7 months old. They both love the food and the lollipop bones keep them occupied for hours. The service is outstanding, packaging easy to manage and their knowledgable staff advise on medical and general questions quickly. I can't recommend more strongly ! On of the best parts about the BARF diet is the smaller and less smelly poo - I wish all dogs were on it, particularly the ones who visit our house!

I have only recently started looking into the BARF diet after my dog developed food allergies so I'm a huge newbie.I came across Honey's by accident. I got an email back today from their Services team (1 day reply, super fast).The email had loads of helpful information for someone new to BARF. It also had a quotation and just loads of helpful information about offers and ways to try out a smaller portion of food before committing. The only downside is that shipping is quite expensive (£9 for England & Wales) which is to be expected really and that quite a large amount of food has to bought in one go (10kg). Such a large amount that you would have to have a spare freezer hanging about. I don't have anywhere to put such a large amount of food but the Customer Service is excellent. Would highly recommend them just for this. They also have two options for feeding DIY or Complete which again is super handy for newbies and old pros.

Yes, I know people seem to love this food but my dog (8 months) had problems with it. Thankfully I only ordered a small taster pack. He didn't like the food and kept sniffing it and walking away. Eventually he did manage to gobble it up being a dog.. After having it for 3 days he would go quite nuts after eating it each time. Almost like he was on drugs or something. i gave him the exact amount they told me to feed him. along with the doggy madness he had a bad tummy to boot. He also started scratching his rude bits and his ears frantically. I guess I can safely say raw doesn't suit him! I'd tried another brand a few months before, but he hadn't gone nuts on it, just a bad tummy. I believe this is a good food if your dog tolerates it and especially for high energy 'working dogs'. It is very expensive so in a way I'm glad I'm not forking out the money anymore. I gave him some Nature's Menu and he was happy and back to his old calmer self again.

I have just started feeding my Springer Honey's. The service is superb. There are nutritional it's to talk to advice about holistic treatments if interested. The staff will work with your vet too. Follow up calls to see how the food is going. My dog loves her food, she is currently having a "novel protein" diet to try and overcome food allergies. Not the cheapest but you pay for what you get.

I have fed my all dogs a BARF diet for over ten years and have used Honey's for about 3-4 years now. I found them at Crufts and was very impressed by the quality of the meat they use and the dedication and friendly attitude of this small family firm. They are a wonderful company to deal with: very helpful and informative.
When Dylan had an eye removed they sent him a packet of liver treats in his food parcel to help cheer him up. They are always interested in the emails people send about their dogs.
Dylan is a rescue Labbies and had been very ill treated and half starved. He only weighed 20 kg when we got him from the centre. Because of this he has various ongoing medical conditions like glaucoma, high blood pressure and arthritis. Dylan had pancreatitis once, so we avoid fatty meat like lamb, but he has free range beef, pork, chicken, sometimes rabbit or venison, and this month there was turkey. He has never had a repeat of the pancreatitis now he is on Honey's, his coat is lovely and thick and the vet is very pleased that the glaucoma and blood pressure are being well controlled. My last 2 Labbies lived to 16 and 17 years so I am a great believer that a BARF diet is best. Now I've found Honeys I would never use any other company.
