I have been looking too. P n p is obviously really high as it has to be transported frozen.
I am going to buy an enormous amount that will cost a fortune but last for ages. 36kg.
Would go halves if you lived in north norfolk!

Wolf Tucker is supposed to be very good, Natural Instinct and Honey's real dog food also do complete pre-made raw.
If you just want bone-in mince there are lots of suppliers, but most people who feed this way have a large freezer and order in bulk to keep the costs down. It is quite tricky if you just have one small dog, that is why I prefer to shop at the supermarket/butchers, I just don't have the storage space.
Prize Choice is available in large pet shops like [email protected], all the varieties that include chicken have bone in. You can just buy a block at a time if you don't have the freezer space.
Are you on FB? There is a very friendly raw feeding group called Raw Feeding, lots of uk members feed minces, so a great place to ask about suppliers.
Here's a link to their suppliers/distributors file

Have you asked your butcher if they do a pet mince? Lots do, and should have bone, meat and offal included. They do tend to be a bit vague about ingredients and proportions though.

TBH, if you are going to be feeding wings and ribs etc as bony chews, you probably won't need bone-in minces as well. Bone is only 10% of the overall diet.
