What Is The Farmer’s Dog?

The Farmer’s Dog is a New York based dog food delivery service that creates vet-designed meal plans that are customized to your dog’s individual needs. It focuses on fresh, human-grade food that is shipped every 2-8 weeks, depending on the amount needed, to straight to your doorstep. 

How Does It Works?

Similar to other dog food delivery services, pet-parents fill out a questionnaire about the dog that includes their sex, weight, age and breed. Once completed, The Farmer’s Dog creates a vet-designed plan that is customized to the dog’s individual needs. Meals are then pre-made and pre-portioned to the calorie needs, based on the profile created. The pet-parent then selects 1 of 3 different formulas – Turkey Recipe, Beef Recipe, or Pork Recipe. 

Board-certified veterinary nutritionists carefully formulate each recipe to be 100% complete and balanced according to AAFCO standards. All of the ingredients are human-grade and sourced from reputable food suppliers, local farms, and other human food purveyors that meet USDA standards. They never use feed-grade ingredients, and don’t process ingredients to be shelf-stable, ensuring that the dog is getting the highest quality, most natural nutrients available.

The meals are prepared in USDA kitchens, where each recipe is gently cooked at low temperatures according to USDA-facility standards. They are then frozen and packed for shipping. The meals arrive in environmentally friendly boxes, that keep the food safe, in compact sealed packs that should be stored in the freezer and thawed in the refrigerator.

The Farmer’s Dog ships nation-wide every 2-8 weeks, depending on the amount needed. However, the deliveries are flexible and the pet parent has the ability to adjust deliveries at any time online.

What Recipe Options Do They Offer?

The Farmer’s Dog offers 3 different formulas that correspond to its selection of proteins. These primary proteins include turkey, beef and pork, and are often mixed with legumes and vegetables like lentils, chickpeas, sweet potatoes and carrots.
