Open Farm: Gently Cooked Dog Food

Open Farm offers a range of product options from gently cooked and raw to kibble and freeze dried. Founded in 2014, Open Farm is a relatively new pet food company that has carved out a space within the industry by focusing on ethically and humanely raised meats, transparency, and environmentally conscious. Each ingredient can be traced from bag to it’s origin, and any pet owner can scan a QR code in order to see the testing done on individual diets for pathogens.

Open Farm Gently Cooked dog food offers four different recipes for adult dogs. All recipes are grain-free, however, none contain potatoes, peas or legumes. There are three single-protein recipes (beef, turkey, and chicken), and one multi-protein recipe (beef & salmon). All of the Open Farm cooked recipes are high in protein, high in fat, and low to restricted in carbohydrates (greater than 27% protein, greater than 55% fat, and less than 12% carbohydrates on a caloric basis).

Diets with these ingredients and composition may be ideal for picky dogs, dogs who are sensitive to carbohydrates due to intolerances, and active dogs who need higher protein and fat for energy and muscle recovery.
