Fresh food helps dogs thrive.
Every dog should enjoy the life-changing benefits of a fresh diet. If you’re cooking fresh homemade dog food, adding our DIY Nutrient Mix ensures your meals are complete and balanced and safe for daily feeding.
Why a nutrient mix is vital for homemade dog food
“Studies have shown 95% of home-prepared diets of well-intended owners have one or more significant nutrient deficiencies. Feeding an incomplete diet over time can result in serious health problems like immune dysfunction and degenerative muscle diseases.
The Farmer’s Dog recipes and DIY supplement are an ideal way to optimize the home-prepared plan with proper complete and balanced nutrition.”

Redd’s Beef Recipe
Time: 35 mins
Yield: 4.5 lbs
Ground Beef, Sweet Potato, Carrots, Spinach, Eggs, DIY Nutrient Mix, Sunflower Oil, Salmon Oil
Place pot/skillet/dutch oven over medium to medium-high heat on the stovetop. Pour in the sunflower oil and spread evenly to coat the bottom.
Add the ground beef. Break apart and stir until the meat is no longer pink and is broken into small pieces.
Add the sweet potato and carrots. Cook until the vegetables are soft and easily break apart or are tender when pierced with a fork.
Add the spinach, cook until wilted, and stir to evenly distribute throughout the mixture.
Add the eggs and salmon oil to the pot. Break the yolks and stir to evenly distribute. Cook until the eggs are firm and no longer runny. If using a food-safe thermometer, check the temperature in several places to verify that a food-safe temperature of 165°F is reached throughout. Otherwise, ensure all meat and eggs are cooked thoroughly.
Remove the pot from the heat and sprinkle the 1 packet of The Farmer’s Dog DIY Nutrient Mix evenly across the surface. Stir to evenly distribute throughout the food until you can no longer see the nutrient mix.
