Today marks the one year anniversary of Open Farm’s launch in pet stores across the country.
(Read on to find out about the giveaway we’re hosting to celebrate!)
Open farm has had a very busy year promoting their ethically raised and sourced pet food. They’ve stood out against their competitors in the Natural Pet Food area by ensuring that their dog foods are not only nutritious, but that they “do some good” in the world as well.
Open Farm uses meat and poultry that has been raised under Certified Humane conditions, fed a vegetarian diet free of antibiotics and hormones, and that has been raised with space, shelter and the ability to engage in natural behaviours.
The fish they use has been caught seasonally, with sustainable fishing practices, and is ocean caught—never farmed.
Their vegetables and fruits are sourced locally, and their recipes are free of corn, wheat, soy, artificial flavouring and preservatives. And of course, Open Farm dog food never contains ingredients from China.
What more could you ask for from your pet’s food?

As a conscientious consumer, feeding Open Farm to my pet just makes sense. It ticks all the boxes that I want it to, it makes me feel like I’m helping to make a difference by choosing this Humane Certified food over others, and it passes my dog’s taste test—and he’s very particular with his food. We love Open Farm and we want you to love it as well!
