“Ethics” is not on the mandate for many pet food manufacturers, but it is for Open Farm. They use 100% traceable ingredients sourced from family farms, using antibiotic and growth hormone free meats, and non-GMO fruits and veggies.

If we aren’t already on to a winner, it also packs a high protein percentage (30%) and a decent amount of fat (14%) which assures us a lower-carbohydrate diet than most.

They offer full disclosure on every ingredient in your specific bag. Simply go to their website and type in the bag number and voila, they’ll tell you exactly what’s in the bag and where it came from! Fantastic transparency!

Let’s delve in a little deeper to the Homestead Chicken & Turkey formula…

The first three ingredients are meat and fish (turkey, chicken, and whitefish meal). Being hormone-free is excellent, and there aren’t any rendered meats in the product – just natural stuff.

We have to account for the first seven ingredients being prominent, and these include a combination of potato, chickpeas, lentils, and peas. A mixture is good, and despite being veggies/legumes they are decent ingredients.

Throughout we find some excellent inclusions. They’ve added coconut oil and salmon oil which are far more beneficial than cheaper alternatives. Superfood alfalfa, flaxseed for skin, coat, and overall well-being. Cinnamon to help regulate blood sugar, and anti-carcinogenic turmeric. To top it off the food is artificially preserved with rosemary extract.

This stacks up against the best, so highly recommended.

  1. We have bought this 4 times via Pet circle (chicken and turkey grain free and the ancient grain versions of chicken and also Lamb ) for our German shorthaired pointer,not one issue with digestibility ,stools were consistent and his coat has remained glossy and soft as it was when we fed him Taste of the wild as we rotate these two for him . You’re paying a price with premium kibbles but we have been lucky enough to grab them most times when 10% off ,we mix with beef or kangaroo mince most meals. We purchase the 10kg bags but they’re aren’t resealable, not a deal breaker as the kibble is super fresh smelling,never broken ,no dust and worth every penny!
