Hello Wonderful Raw Pet Food Eaters!!!
Moe’s Meats wishes you bountiful amounts of raw chicken, raw rabbit, chicken feet and rec bones. Not to leave out ground veggies for dogs, raw beef and ground tripe and cow pie. Mmmmmmmmm.
We love selling raw meat at affordable prices and we strive to make this happen at all times. There are times when we need to raise our rates, and the beginning of this year is a time when this needs to happen. As you know, we are a home distributor of Columbia River Natural Pet Foods and when their prices increases, so do ours.
Moe knows that your family budget is a fine balance and we hope that we continue to meet your raw meat needs. As always, please feel free to give us a call (503.737.8834) or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
Greetings to all human readers, this is a message from Moe, your faithful servant and raw meat purveyor.
A year ago around this time, I put my people in charge of maintaining the blog (AKA, Meat Blog). Little did I know what slackers they were. While they, you know, went about the task of making, then birthing a baby (my youngest employee), my meat blog went dry. So, I will be re-taking over the meat blog to make sure you are updated more frequently on the many comings and goings of the meat trade.
FIRST ITEM: A NEW PHONE NUMBER FOR MOE’S MEATS
Next time you’re looking for raw meat for your dog and/or cat in the Portland area, there’s a new number to call: 503-737-8834. The former Moe’s hotline will be going off-line as of September 19, just before the Meatquinox.
Until then – I wish you good and meaty tidings.
Greetings everyone! Moe asked that I compose a brief email to say hello, offer thanks for shopping with us, and to let you know what’s new at Moe’s Meats.
Meat Stamps: have you collected yours?
At the start of the year, we announced the special Meat Stamp promotion: When you make 10 purchases of $50 or more, you receive $25 off your 11th purchase. We’ve already had quite a few people complete the loop and receive their discount, and a few are on their way to completing their second set of stamps. This promotion is good until the end of the year, at which point we’ll decide if we’ll do it again in 2011.
Making special orders.
Because of the way Moe likes to structure his business (i.e. – he “samples” a lot of product) our inventory is sometimes low, and we can’t always fulfill your exact order right away. This is just a reminder that you can check in with us over email or phone if you know you’ll be wanting a lot of one particular kind of meat, and we’ll make sure to stock up during our next order.
A few pricing changes.
These odd economic times have sent a couple of ripples through the ranching sectors. Effective September 1, Moe had to make a couple of uncomfortable decisions that will affect some popular meats.
Bison: The leanest and meanest of the red meat group is also the most heavily affected. Moe’s price on a 2 lb. tube of bison is going from $6.50 to $8.40.
Turkey: Ben Franklin’s favorite bird will see a slight increase from $3.50 to $3.75.
Turkey with heart: Likewise, turkey with the heart add will bump up from $4.75 to $5.00
Venison: Moe has decided to discontinue the sale of venison. He hasn’t explained why he made this choice, but we think it has something to do with the fact that he’s always wanted to adopt a fawn.
As always, we remain committed to having the lowest prices on meats around. If you spot Columbia River Natural Pet foods at prices lower than you’ll find at Moe’s, please let us know.
Whole bones in the diet?
If you’re curious about the benefits of getting whole bones in your dog’s diet, just give us a call or shoot an email with questions. Moe keeps chicken feet, chicken backs and turkey necks on a regular basis, along with recreational chew bones that are filled with marrow and great for keeping teeth shiny and white (and keeping a dog entertained for hours)!
Moe’s newest meat poem
Out in the yard
summer’s last rose
blooms in the spot
where I bury my bones
Thanks for reading, and for meating – we look forward to seeing you soon.
My husband warned me that it’s not a good idea to leave empty meat wrappers in the laundry sink when the washer emptied into it. I thought it was a good idea because it cleaned out the wrapper before stuffing it in the outside garbage. Well, it got stuck. Far far far down the pipe. Our advice: take the wrappers to the garbage as soon as possible.
Currently we have lots of turkey necks and chicken backs, already packaged for ease of feeding (meaning we don’t sell them in 40 pound frozen blocks) for sale. The turkey necks are about 2.25 pounds per package as are the chicken backs.
This is a great way for your dog to get the complete marrow of the bone, the cleaning of the teeth and the exercise of the jaw, all in one meal.
Moe’s Meats, located in NE Portland about a mile north of Alberta St in the Woodlawn neighborhood, offers natural, raw and local meat for your dog or cat. Moe’s Meats is an LLC operating out of a residence, which means we are able to offer you the lowest price on Columbia River Natural pet foo
If you’re new to feeding raw meat, give us a call or send us an email and we’ll help you tranistion and get started. If you’ve been feeding raw for years, just tell us what you want to order and a time that you want to pick it up and we’ll deliver to your car. No shopping time required.
Moe’s Meats has turkey necks, turkey necks, chicken backs, chicken backs and more turkey necks for sale for you.
You may have noticed that your raw fed pet doesn’t drink as much water as other dogs. Yup, totally normal. Kibble contains a lot of sodium, which makes pups thirsty. A raw meat diet is lower in sodium and naturally contains more water in it than normal. Yeah, for raw meat!
Moe’s people will be on vacation from Thursday, May 20 through Sunday, May 23. Feel free to still call or email to place an order and we can schedule a time when we get back.
Moe would like me to mention that he, his roommate and a hired guard will be watching over his meat whilst we are away.
Mmmmmm…….though you won’t be serving your dog these raw turkey necks on a plate of greens, this is certainly a meal fit for a king or queen. What a lucky dog…..
Moe’s Meats is happy happy happy to sell turkey necks for your raw fed dog. To make it easy for feeding, we sell turkey necks in packs of 3 or 4 that weigh a little over 2 pounds. This ensures you won’t have to mess around we defrosting and then pulling apart large quantities of necks – that’s our job.
If you dog has never had a turkey neck before, supervise their first few feedings. Sometimes it’s unbelievable how dogs can chew through and crunch bone and then swallow what seems like large pieces. If it makes you uncomfortable, look away but stay nearby until you are sure he knows what he’s doing.
Most dogs don’t have a problem with eating raw turkey necks, but we always feel it’s better to be safe and be at home when he’s chowing down on his soon to be favorite meal – RAW TURKEY NECKS!!
Oh, what to feed your Ridgeback and St. Bernard? How can you ensure proper health during massive growth spurts? How can you best maintain the integrity of their skeletal system as they grow older?
The raw diet is a great place to start. Staring a puppy with a diet of raw meat and reducing grains and yeast will help them get a strong start in life. You will also want to limit their foods so they grow slower, but doing so under a watchful and informed eye.
Also, keeping their exercise to a limit in the first year is important. Young injuries can creep up when that dog is full grown and 3 years old. So resist the long hikes or extended runs. Instead, let your pup play with other dogs and ensure he or she is resting as well.
If you’re wanting to read more about the raw diet and raising a large puppy, check out Dr. Billinghurst’s book “Grow Your Pups with Bones”.
Hello Dear Meat Buyers,
Moe just wanted me to let you know that he will be on vacation from Wednesday, March 30 until Saturday, April 3. If you have an urgent need for meat, please place and pick up your order by Tuesday. Otherwise we will see you after April 3!
And now a meat poem:
the M is for moe-dacious
the E is for eating
the A is for appetite
the T is for treating
Thanks so much,
Courtney, Meat Woman
Hello Raw Meat Searchers,
I’m glad you have found Moe’s Meats. We offer fresh, local, antibiotic and hormone free raw meat for your dog and cat. Our meat comes frozen in 2 pound chubs (tubes) that are easy to defrost and make into single servings.
We sell meat with organs, without organs, with ground bone, with or without veggies and lots of other choices that fit your needs.
If you have any questions about starting the raw meat diet, just give us a call: 503.245.2853 and we’ll be happy to help.
Ahhhh, check out these pups enjoying a nice raw meat meal. Yes, even pups can eat raw meat. Satchel, that’s Moe, was weaned on raw meat.
Questions about the raw meat diet: Call us in Portland, Oregon – 503.245.2853
Just a friendly reminder from Moe’s Meats that dry kibble contains additives, chemicals and preservatives in every single piece. This is stuff our pets should not be eating at every meal. It doesn’t matter if it’s the “expensive” kind of kibble or the “prescription” kibble – it’s dry cereal that is NOTHING close to real food. And dogs would like to eat real food.
Add in the toxins from “routine” vaccines, water and the environment and it’s no wonder that dogs are dying of cancer, suffering from allergies and people are spending lots of money on vet bills and medication.
Commercial pet food has only been around for a few decades – think about that for a minute. What did dogs eat before Purina came about? Meat and scraps.
Are you a little unsure about the raw meat diet and how it will change your life? Well, here are some tips we like to share with new raw meat / BARF feeders:
- The key to transitioning your dog to the raw diet is to start slow. Their first raw meal should be 3/4 what they normally eat and 1/4 raw meat. You can slowly work your way from there. If you do notice they have a belly ache, pick up some digestive enzymes at your grocery store and give them a pill with each meal until the bottle is finished. By that time they should be fine with eating raw.
- It’s hard to estimate how much raw meat your pet will actually eat. It all depends on their age, breed, activity level and metabolism. What we can tell you is that Satchel, our 6 year old, mellow, 85 pound Ridgeback gets 3 meals out of 2 pounds of meat (plus veggies). That’s the same amount that our 45 pound, high energy, mystery hound Maji eats.
- The great thing about the raw meat diet (well, one of the great things about the raw meat diet) is that you will be able to tell very quickly if you are feeding your pet too much or too little of the raw meat. They gain and loose very fast, unlike the slow build up of weight with kibble.
- What about freezing and thawing? Well, if yo have a bigger dog we recommend thawing the tube of meat until you can cut it then keep the rest in the fridge until it’s gone. If you have smaller dogs or cats you can thaw until it’s cutable, then slice up meal sized servings and re-freeze.
- And the mess? If you have a special space you can set aside for meat preparing, that’s easiest. A laundry, garage, etc works great. That’s not a required part of the feeding the raw meat diet, it just helps. What also helps is if you can set aside a knife and fork and cutting board that is used just for the raw meat. This is particularly helpful if you don’t have a dishwasher to clean everything up.
- Any more questions? Just ask us at Moe’s Meats.

Hi Potential Buyer,
We are a residence operating as an LLC in NE Portland off of 15th street. How Moe’s Meats works is we can chat on the phone or via email to answer all your questions, then when you place an order you select a time to pick up the meat and we deliver it to your car – so no shopping time required.
Moe’s Meats sells local, antibiotic and hormone free meats, that are USDA inspected (though not for human consumption b/c the ground meat does contain bone). We sell Columbia River Valley meats because we found them to be of the highest quality that is also the most affordable.
Our ground meat is sold in tubes called chubs that equal 2 pounds of meat. If you own dogs, all dogs should also be getting ground veggies with every meal. We sell meat that comes with veggies (80% meat & 20% veggies) and we sell 1.5 pound veggie packs that allow you to control the amount of veggies you add to their meal.
In case you didn’t notice, the Shop Meat section lists all our products and the prices: http://www.moesmeats.com/shop_meat
If you have any questions Potential Buyer, just let me know.
Courtney, Meat Woman
i am taunted by the last fly of the year.
it keeps me away from my fire, my bed.
the wind outside howls like a dog uncertain.
process note: like, you know, i have not written a poem in a while. my life is, like, complicated and busy. owning a business, going to the park, macking bitches…it’s get a little heavy. so’ah, like, i’m taking december off to, you know, chill.

…but here is a quote from a meat loving person:
If any vegans came over for dinner, I could whip them up a salad, then explain my philosophy on being a carnivore: If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat? I love meat. I eat pork chops, thick bacon burgers, and the seared fatty edges of a medium-well-done steak. But I especially love moose and caribou. I always remind people from outside our state that there’s plenty of room for all Alaska’s animals—right next to the mashed potatoes.
Hello Pet Owners,
Have you heard about the raw meat pet food diet but didn’t know where to start? Or have you been feeding your dog or cat raw meat for years and are looking for a way to continue with the raw meat diet AND save money?

There is no shopping time required.

Raw meat in a dog bowl.
hi – this is a note from moe -
just so you new families know, Moe’s Meats is the perfect place to shop for raw meat for your dog because, like, you don’t have to worry about, you know, taking baby out of the car seat, going into a store to shop for meat, then walking baby AND meat back to the car where you have to, you know, deal. At Moe’s, we run the meat out to your car,
meaning you and baby can stay idle while our meat representatives bring you (and your dog) what you want.
here’s a picture to prove, like, just how much I love babies.
just wanted to say that even though i had, like, a big night last night, that doesn’t mean i’m not open for business. woman can like, take care of all your raw meat needs in the portland metro area.
Hello meat eaters (and your people/owners) – those delicious chicken necks I’m holding…the ones you’re salivating over. Guess who packed them? That’s right – me.
Received the shipment, broke things down into dog-friendly portions, packed them in your to-go bag, and ran them out to your owner’s car while you rode in the back with your head out the window, breathing the meat-filled breeze.
And with that said, I humbly ask for your vote for Moe’s employee of the year, 2009.
Hello Moe’s Meats fans. For those of you I haven’t met, this is what I look like. Eventually, we’ll have Moe’s Meats t-shirts for sale so you can identify Moe’s Meats staff and buyers. Until then, this is my picture.
If you’ve enjoyed our phone conversations, meat transactions or the product we sell, please vote for me, Meat Woman. Thank you.
