There is no denying that high quality protein is the building block of a healthy canine diet.
As a former vegetarian, it has always been hard for me to cope with the fact that despite buying high quality kibble for our dogs, the source of the protein in this food is not selected with the same care as the meat I buy for myself.
The reality is that even when meat is sourced in the USA, the protein in your favorite kibble is likely part of the factory farming system which places company profit over the welfare of animals. As an animal lover, it is difficult to rationalize advocating for the care of animals while at the same time supporting this industry.
This is why we are so excited to tell you about Open Farm Pet Food – a company that is making a huge commitment to changing an industry.
Open Farm Pet Food
Open Farm is a family run company based in Toronto, Canada. Aside from creating some of the healthiest dog food available, the major thing that sets them apart is that all of their ingredients are ethically sourced. This means taking great care and effort to source both humanely raised meat as well as fresh and local vegetables.
The Recipe’s and Ingredients
Open Farm currently offers 3 wholesome recipes – formulated to be interchangeable in a rotational diet:
- Homestead Turkey & Chicken
- Catch-of-the-Season Whitefish & Green Lentil
