We want to make it easy to give your dog the best life possible. And that starts with what you put in their bowl. We were founded by two dog lovers who we were fed up with highly-processed, burnt brown balls being marketed as “natural” and “healthy” — so they decided to reimagine pet food from the ground up.
Guided by science.
Driven by love.
Using decades of pet nutrition research (and a little common sense), our founders worked with top vet nutritionists to create a convenient and perfectly-formulated fresh pet food service.
All of our dog-specific recipes are made with ingredients that are high-quality enough for humans to eat, and cooked in a safe, regulated kitchen that’s exclusively used for human-grade food production. And for freshness and convenience, it’s then delivered direct to your door.
We’re using quality and safety standards never before seen in the pet food industry — and the result is food safe enough that humans could eat it, but perfectly nutritionally balanced for dogs.
It began with Jada
Jada was the most beautiful puppy, but suffered from severe digestive issues the first two years of her life. Her dad and our co-founder, Brett, tried every food on the market. Nothing helped.
Real food, real results
Following the recommendation of one vet, Brett tried home cooking. He simply prepared ingredients pictured on the front of a bag of traditional dog food — but what he made actually looked, smelled, and tasted like real food. Seemingly overnight, Jada was cured.
A fresh revelation
Brett realized that the way pet food was being marketed was very different from how it was being made, so he teamed up with Jonathan (and his pup, Buddy) to build the company they wished existed for their own dogs. From cooking and packing to delivery and customer service, it was a true passion project full of twists, turns, and belly rubs.
Brett and Jonathan were blown away by the local response to their service; dogs of all shapes and sizes were thriving on the food, and their humans had newfound peace of mind about what they were feeding them. With a small-but-mighty team, they set out to make The Farmer’s Dog available across the country — without sacrificing a crumb of the care, love, and quality of their first home-cooked batch.
Our team has grown to over 100 people (we’re hiring!) and we’re delivering millions of meals monthly. In many ways, we’re just getting started, but what drives us hasn’t changed: Making it easy to keep dogs healthy. We’re not sure if Jada realizes how many dogs her story has ultimately impacted, but we think she’d be pretty pleased.Start Your Fresh Journey
