My Review of The Farmer’s Dog (Plus, How You Can Get 50% Off, Risk Free)

OK, I confess.

I was skeptical that this pet food could live up to the hype. I’ve seen so many people singing its praises, both online and even at my local dog park.

But it’s the real deal. I’ll explain why below.

Hi. I’m Dave Baker, publisher of Petful. I’ve been tracking pet food recalls for the past 10 years, so pet food safety is my #1 concern.

Today, I want to introduce you to my new favorite pet food, The Farmer’s Dog.

I love that the company is based right here in Brooklyn, New York, where I live and work. That means I’ve been able to tour everything in person, meet the staff (and their dogs), and get to know what drives them to make the best dog food on the market.

Yes, I just said that.

Please keep reading, because there is much more to discover…

Don’t laugh, but here I am rocking a hairnet during a pet food kitchen tour.

First, There Was Heartache and Frustration

The food came about as a result of health problems and setbacks that co-founder Brett Podolsky was experiencing with his beloved Rottweiler, Jada, who was suffering from horrible stomach problems.

Brett tried what felt like every kibble on the market for Jada, but it just made her condition worse. So he finally went to a holistic vet, who suggested home cooking. And so he did, and her symptoms disappeared overnight.

He would stop cooking and switch back to kibble, but poor Jada would just get sick again. Every time. It was frustrating for both of them. And this went on for months.

“It broke my heart to know that my baby was essentially living with a stomach ache,” says Brett.

One thing was clear, though: Jada was thriving when she ate real, freshly cooked food — not dry brown balls of processed kibble.

Cooking meals for a pet every day is hard work, though. It’s not for everyone. I know it’s not for me. I would last maybe a week. How about you? Not to mention, if you feed an unbalanced diet, your pet will be worse off than they’d be on a cheap commercial pet food!

Brett and Jada — she’s made a remarkable recovery after suffering for 2 years with stomach problems on “regular” dog food.

Finally, a Better Way…

Curious, Brett started doing more and more research.

He wondered: “Is there a dog food brand out there that already exists that I can trust to feed my dog — that’s honest and really just doing what they say that they do?”

And that honest, trustworthy brand he was looking for simply did not exist — yet.

That’s when he decided to build it himself. And that’s where The Farmer’s Dog enters the picture.

With The Farmer's Dog, now there’s an easier way to give your dog…

  • More energy than ever
  • A shinier coat and brighter eyes
  • A stronger immune system and healthier digestion
  • A better chance at a longer life

This isn’t processed pet feed. It’s REAL pet food.


How It Works

The way The Farmer’s Dog works is:

  • You go to their site.
  • You fill out a quick profile for your dog.
  • Their custom technology will calculate a meal plan specifically for your dog’s needs. They take different things into consideration. Age, weight, all sorts of factors — completely personalized.
  • And they cook and deliver it to you quickly. It’s cooked within days before shipping it, frozen only for transportation reasons.

What’s in the Box? My Video Review of The Farmer’s Dog

Here is my quick video showing what’s in the box, and what my canine reviewer thought about this dog food.

Did you watch it? As you can see, my canine taste-tester’s review of The Farmer’s Dog was an absolute success.

Listen to that smacking at the end of the video, haha!

More Reasons to Love It

  • Human-grade ingredients means less processing, natural nutrients and higher safety standards.
  • The food is prepared in a USDA-regulated kitchen. In fact, it’s the only dog food made there at the facility — everything else is human food, which is virtually unheard of.
  • The recipes are formulated by some of the top veterinary nutritionists in the United States. That puts me at ease because I know all the recipes are completely balanced.

How to Add 3 Years to Your Dog’s Life

I know what you’re thinking. “Dave, you’ve convinced me that The Farmer’s Dog is a decent pet food, but come on, is it really as great as you say it is? Why should I think about switching?”

And here’s my reply: How’d you like to add months, even years, to your dog’s life?

I’m not exaggerating.

According to Dogs Naturally magazine, a years-long study of 522 dogs by Lippert and Sapy (2003) found something truly astonishing. Their data showed that dogs who were fed high-quality, freshly made, real food had an average life expectancy of 13.1 years versus just 10.4 years for dogs fed commercial processed pet food.

Did you catch that?

The dogs lived nearly 3 years longer.

The researchers (who were both veterinarians) said, “This great difference shows that food is a major factor for the dogs’ life expectancy.”

They concluded: Providing dogs fresh, nutritious food — food that hasn’t been over-processed, loaded up with chemical additives, sprayed down with awful preservatives or hammered by high heat — “is a guarantee for better protection, well-being and longer life expectancy.”

That’s powerful, isn’t it?

Now, imagine getting benefits like THAT with all the convenience of timely home deliveries from The Farmer’s Dog. They’ve done all the work for you — all you have to do is open the fridge, pop open the pouch and spoon some food into your dog’s bowl. If you want, you can warm it up in the microwave first. And then ... watch your spoiled pup gobble it up like nobody’s business.

That feeling? It’s like your dog is getting a giant hug from you with every delicious, savory bite of every meal.

And for you?

No grocery store trips, no raw meat to handle, no hours spent cooking for your dog, and (my personal favorite) no dirty pots and pans to scrub clean.
