Default Raw sources in Los Angeles

Does anyone know/have any places they get their raw food from?
I currently buy from El Monte Wholesale meat

I was hoping to find other places to buy from and I know SoCal has a co op but I don't want to join..

I would try Harvest Meat Company. I have used their San Diego location as well as their Sacramento location for dog food.

Yelp or Google butchers in your area. We have ONE butcher for all of the Santa Clarita Area...and when I went in there asking for weird things (turkey neck, chicken back...that kinda weird) he immediately said "Oh! you're feeding a dog?" and started listing everything he's made for people. Even said that once I figured out what I wanted on a regular basis he'd either order it for me or if he had it make it cut the way I wanted with no extra charge!

I'm trying to figure out how to join the co-op. I paid $1.89lb for the turkey necks...co-op advertises 0.49-0.79lb...well worth it in my opinion! Especially if I want to go start feeding the more expensive meats! They can get venison and bison and ostrich! All cheaper than the butcher. I also am having a hard time finding out if he can get green tripe, which the co-op can get. I think it's worth it for one day a year to volunteer.

from what I read on the site, you just have to place your first order, and from there they will ask you to schedule your volunteer date and go from that

If you are looking for tripe, try 909-244-7691 (Walnut area).

I get chicken backs from Puritan Poultry at the farmer's market on fairfax. As I get 30-40 lbs at a time, they sell it to me at 69 cents/lb.

I get fish and organs from asian markets, beef at restaurant supply stores.

I joined socal barf but found it to be inconvenient and quality was marginal.

I've gone to 99ranch for some things not found in your normal market but the prices weren't the best.

Bikecafe, Is that number you left for green tripe?

L&t meat company is another wholesaler
Also harvest meat company (vernon,ca) I've spoken to and was told they would sell to me as long as I bought by the case
