In a Nutshell

Open Farm is the true animal lover's pet food delivery service. The brand goes out of its way to provide pet parents with healthy, nutritious, fresh, and flavorful meals. The quality is top-notch, using only human-grade, premium quality, and responsibly sourced ingredient that's better for your pet. And Open Farm goes one step further, taking care to only work with farmers and suppliers who are third-party certified and treat their animals humanely. This results in a better quality of ingredients like grass-fed beef and pasture-raised lamb. There is a wide variety of flavors and meal options for all types of diets and tastes.

Pros

  • Ethically sourced, premium-quality ingredients
  • Nutritionally balanced for optimal pet health
  • Healthy, tasty, dry, and wet pet food and extras

Cons

  • Free samples only available in person
  • Since most pet food is not recyclable, they've worked with a third party to recycle their pet food, so each household will have to register if they want to reduce their waste
  • No shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, or US Virgin Islands

How it Works

Open Farm has designed the site to be as user-friendly as can be. You can search for specific items by keyword or use the filters to find a more general category like life stage, dry food, gently cooked, treats, bundles, and supplements.

You can also schedule a private consultation with one of the board-certified specialists and veterinarians if you prefer a personalized diet plan for your pet.

Food Variety and Quality

There's no question that Open Farm has some of the highest quality standards in the industry for making pet food. As mentioned, the entire process from sourcing suppliers to delivery is done with care, consideration, and consciousness. Humanely raised proteins are used to create higher-quality meals for pets. And local, non-GMO, fresh produce only adds to the quality.

All proteins are antibiotic and hormone-free. There are no artificial flavors or preservatives either. Open Farm also believes strongly in transparency. This means you can trace every ingredient in your dog or cat's bowl back to its source.

As mentioned, Open Farm also has a ton of variety. Most high-end dog food stores have a handful of options, and cat foods are generally limited to one or two selections. Open Farm has tens of options for each, dry, wet, freeze-dried, raw, broths, and more. So if variety is the spice of your life, Open Farm is a good option.

Additional Products Available

If you're in the market for other pet products, Open Farm can accommodate. The site has treats, supplements, bone broth, mixers, and toppers.

Pricing

Open Farm pricing covers a wide range since it has so many different products. With dry food being priced per bag and fresh wet food being priced per meal.

You can also buy treats, though Open Farm is careful to caution that these should be given sparingly.

Open Farm also has a 15-day return policy on most items. But check your specific items before you make a purchase. Enjoy free shipping for orders over $50.

What Pet Parents Have to Say About Open Farm

Easy peasy I was looking to switch my 8 month old chocolate Lab from puppy food to a quality diet. I researched several following WDJ recommendations and found you! Quick delivery and as I blended his old food to the new, I noticed better poop! A dog walker's must!!! He loves the food and I am very happy." - Rebecca

"Abel Loves His Open Farm Meals Abel (Chow Chow from pet rescue) love's Harvest Chicken Gently Cooked Recipe. He gets very excited when we feed it to him along with his Open Farm Kibble for Puppies. We did lots of research to find the right food and stand behind your products 100%, knowing if they weren't for Abel, they would be good enough for us to eat. We feel really great about feeding Abel your wonderful food !" – Michael N.

Bowl Licking Good I had to change my 16 year old cat's food because of an allergy to "natural flavor." All of the Whole Foods stews contain natural flavor as an ingredient save Open Farm. I switched 3 plus weeks ago and my cat, Maxx, loves the Rustic Chicken flavor. All of the physical evidence of a food allergy are gone and Maxx is back to being himself. He licks the bowl clean and can't wait for his next meal. Thank you, Open Farm for a healthy, clean stew for Maxx. "– Fay S.

Open Farm even goes so far as to give you a chart that helps you track where each ingredient originates from. Open Farm has tons of variety, too, great for cats and dogs who like their particular flavors. And you can find several healthful diet options for pets with health problems.
