Are you opposed to doing homemade raw? It's so much cheaper than the NV raw diet. There are some premade raw diets that are more affordable. I use some of the Blue Ridge Beef products. They cost $2/lb, but some places distribute it cheaper. There are other companies like this, or meat co-ops to get even better prices on various proteins and cuts of meat.
If you are set on going to kibble. I used to use NV grain free kibbles. I really like their company and trust them a million times over Diamond, who makes TOTW. That alone, to me, is worth the price difference. Also, everything in NV is from the US. The rabbit used in their raw diets is from China (but they oversee the plant), but the rabbits in the kibble are from France anyway.
