Farmer’s Dog: Gently Cooked Dog Food

The Farmer’s Dog was founded in 2014 after the founder discovered how beneficial fresh food diets were for helping his own dog Jada with her gastrointestinal issues. But the operation started small – with long-nights in the kitchen by the founders and hand-packed orders, since then the company has grown to employ over 100 people, and is one of the most popular fresh pet food delivery services online.

Farmer’s Dog food offers four different gently cooked diets for dogs, three of which are grain-free and include potatoes/legumes, and one of which is grain-free but contains only meat and vegetables. All recipes have been formulated to be complete and balanced for both adult dogs and puppies – including puppies over 70 lbs at an adult weight. Protein content of the diets is high at greater than 28% on a caloric basis, but fat and carbohydrate content varies by recipe. Carbohydrates are low to moderate (between 15-30% on a caloric basis), and fat content is high (between 39 to 54% on a caloric basis).
