Golden Acres Opens New Location and Launches Free Home Delivery

01 March, 2017

We are excited to announce Golden Acres has moved into a new space in White Bear Lake and is launching free home delivery on orders over $125 starting this March. Over the past three years we have seen significant growth.  In order to make it even easier to feed the very best raw pet food, we will begin offering free home delivery in the Twin Cities metro area.

The March due date and delivery date will not change but starting in April we will begin doing weekly deliveries. The metro has been divided into four zones, each receiving delivery one Wednesday per month. Dividing the metro into quarters provides the most efficient way for couriers to deliver the food. Most existing customers will see no change as they are in Zone 3 and food will be delivered the third Wednesday of the month. A map with the zones/dropsites and full list of 2017 delivery dates is below:

Food will be delivered in plastic bins with gel packs. We took delivery of several hundred bins two weeks ago. Simply set out your old bin the day your new one is arriving and the driver will return your old bin.

If you live outside of the 30-mile radius, your order is less than $125, or you prefer not to have Home Delivery you may still choose delivery to a drop site.

If you are a current subscriber, we have moved your subscription date to run on March 8th to allow you to review your order.  We have not increased prices for over two years and it made sense to review prices as we launched free home delivery. Some items did not change and some were impacted.  For example, the cost of turkey wings and chicken hearts have risen affecting whole piece prices and meat mixes. 

We thank you for your commitment to feeding your pets the very best raw food and we share your belief that nutrition should come from great food.  If you have any questions or concerns at all please contact us. We are committed to 100% customer satisfaction and we look forward to continued growth as we dish up more Golden Acres raw food to pets in the Twin Cities!  

And now some pictures...

Our new location (3579 Hoffman Road, White Bear Lake) is a former pizzaria...how about serving raw dog food through that sliding window?

We packed the February order in the new space. You can see our large walk in freezer on the right.

Several hundred home delivery bins have arrived! We are ready to start delivering raw dog food to your door.

Here we are test fitting some food into the bin. We are having custom styrofoam top and bottom inserts cut along with thermal bags and gel packs to ensure your food stays cold for hours.
