“You are what you eat” does not only apply to humans but also our pets! You may have heard of Open Farm: they produce pet food made with fresh, high quality ingredients that are sourced from audited farms. With their commitment to strict, sustainable, and ethical practices, this translates to a better food for your pet and the proof is in their recipes. Some highlights below.

Defining what quality pet food looks like at Open Farm

  • High protein recipes with meat as the first ingredient, like grass-fed beef and wild-caught fish
  • Locally sourced non-GMO fruits and veggies
  • Natural superfoods, like coconut oil
  • No artificial flavours, fillers or preservatives
  • Free of antibiotics & added growth hormones
  • All ingredients are traceable back to the source
  • Dry food (kibble) starts at an accessible $19 USD
  • A wide range of solutions for dogs and cats: dry food (kibble), raw, freshly prepared meals and supplements

Dogs and cats thrive on a protein-rich diet. Open Farm wants to see your little buddy living life to the fullest, and have made a conscious choice to use fresh, naturally raised meat as the first ingredient in every recipe. That is why they have also partnered with the best family farms across North America, New Zealand, and Australia to ensure premium meat ingredients from farm animals that have been raised the right way.

Still not convinced? Open Farm is all about transparency and wants you to feel good about everything going into your pet’s bowl. All ingredients included in their recipes are 100 percent traceable via their online tracker so you know exactly where every single bag of food comes from and why it’s there!

Not your run of the mill kibble

Just like us humans, some pets have dietary restrictions and finding the right food for them can be tough. Open Farm makes things easier by offering both grain-inclusive and grain-free kibble and a variety of protein options to accommodate your furry friend's needs. The one thing their kibbles do have in common is that they are free of artificial flavours, colours, preservatives, and animal by-products. Oh, and all the fruits and veggies included are locally sourced and GMO-free! While you may be thinking this company has got to be way out of my budget, their kibble is actually really affordable and starts at just $18.99!

Have a picky pet? Try their fresh Gently Cooked meals.

There truly is nothing like a home-cooked meal, so why should pets be left out of the fun? Open Farm’s latest product line of gently cooked home style meals are perfect for picky pets or for pets who have had a long day and need a quick and easy dinner. Hey, sometimes life as a pet is ruff! 

These new recipes are:

  • Can be served as a high protein and low carb complete meal or topper.
