Default Finding Beef heart in FL

Ok, I've looked all over & also just got back from the butcher where I asked again about getting Beef &/or Pork heart. He told me he can't sell beef/pork heart (he said he used to) but isn't allowed to anymore. He said other than some kind of regulation, he didn't know the real reason he isn't allowed to sell them anymore.

I'm in central Florida. So just wondered if anyone knew what the secret was & if anyone knows where I would be able to get some.
I saw there were some Fl raw feeders on here.

I did see a site online last night that looked like it was selling 4# for 51.29. Does that seem ridiculous? or am I being dense & missing something??
Thanks for any suggestions/advice!

PUBLIX....I buy it there. They never have a ton of it, but if you ask they should be able to get more in at a time for you. It's 79 cents a pound. I work there, so if you run into any trouble just let me know!

Ummm...can't help you with finding it in Florida, but I buy it here in Michigan for $1.55/lb.

You might try http://www.haretoday.com and see how much it would cost to ship.

Oh thanks a lot GSDSunshine!! I have been loving that pic of Dakota with the head tilt & tongue hanging out.
I'll ask at Publix next. I had asked at Walmart (Mgr said he wouldn't order it) & Winn Dixie (said to go to the butcher & gave me the address). I looked at Publix, but maybe like you said they just didn't have it in.
Thanks for your help! I was curious what the deal was about why the butcher wasn't allowed to sell it anymore. Wierd.

okay. Let me know how it goes. I work at the Customer Service desk, so i know what we can and can't do for a customer....believe me...there is a lot we do. And if one of the meat clerks says no, I would go to the manager and ask. Or just go straight to the manager. nicely of course. lol

You will find it here. http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/Raw4Pets/

She has a very nice selection of meat at good prices. You can buy in bulk or pay a little extra to have it packaged a specific way.
The beef heart is $1.15/lb. The stores near me rarely have it.

If you're in Orlando you may even be able to pick up your order and save yourself a delivery bill.
Her name is Kathy and she is based in Orlando and delivers to Miami, Ft. Myers, Tampa etc. You can find her email on the site.

Tell her Tahiry in Ft. Myers referred you lol.

Our Publix doesn't carry it in stock (but my sister's does, 100 or so miles away) but I contaced the butcher/manager and he ordered it for me, let me know when it came in and everything. I think it was like $1.10 or so a pound.
