Open Farm really stacks up as one of the best cat foods available in Australia. They also offer something very special, the ability to trace all the ingredients in your specific bag. You simply go to their website and type in the bag number, and voila, they’ll tell you exactly where every ingredient came from!
They take pride in their ingredients coming from family farms, being antibiotic and growth hormone free, and non-GMO fruits and veggies.
Let’s delve in a little deeper to the Homestead Turkey & Chicken Recipe…
First off it’s a high protein (37%) high fat (18%) kibble which is very respectable and assures us lower carbs (sugars) than cheaper alternatives. It’s likely the ratios of the first 6 ingredients are relatively equal, of which we have 4 meat ingredients to 2 legumes. That’s pretty good for a kibble, and it’s nice to see an excellent mix of meat and fish – turkey, chicken, ocean whitefish meal, and herring meal. Chickpeas and red lentils aren’t too bad either, but as cats are carnivores these will provide less nutritional value than the meat and fish.
There’s some excellent ingredients in the food, and it’s nice to see the use of coconut oil rather than cheaper alternatives. It’s also preserved naturally with rosemary extract rather than the ambiguous chemicals you find in many cheap cat foods.
Bonus: Check out the Open Farm wet food cartons – they’re great!
