What’s Unique About Open Farm?
After taking in their rescue dog Bella, Open Farm’s founders discovered a niche in the market for natural and nutritious pet food. They were unable to find what they were looking for among existing suppliers.
In response, they set up Open Farm. Its pet food offering is made from the products of animals that have been raised ethically and humanely, and its partner farms are also certified humane by third-party organizations. Furthermore, Open Farm does not experiment on animals in the testing of its products.
As part of its sustainable ethos, it also uses fully recyclable packaging and, unlike many of its competitors, Open Farm doesn’t use batch-produced meat or poultry meals due to the lack of traceability and regulation in this area.
How It Works
If you would like to purchase Open Farm’s pet food for online delivery, the first step is to visit its website and select your desired food type. If you’re not sure which product would best suit your pet, Open Farm has an online recommendation tool that allows you to find the foods that are specifically catered to your pet’s needs.
You’ll then have the option to set up an automatic recurring subscription, which will be delivered in intervals of between 1 and 8 weeks. When you make a purchase, Open Farm will charge a flat rate of $5.99 for delivery. If, however, your order is above $50, you’ll qualify for free shipping.
Open Farm aims to deliver within 3 to 5 business days, and you won’t need to sign for your item. Once your purchase has arrived, you can return items within 15 days if you (or your pet) are not fully satisfied. Be aware, however, that this doesn’t apply if you have purchased more than 3 of the same item.
If you’re undecided whether Open Farm is right for you, you can try free samples of its products through selected retail stockists.

Food Freshness and Quality
As part of its dedication to transparent sourcing, Open Farm allows customers to instantly trace the origin of every ingredient in their pets’ food via its website.

If you’re a dog or cat owner with an interest in healthy and humanely sourced pet food products, Open Farm has a great deal to offer. We were particularly impressed by its commitment to using traceable and non-genetically modified ingredients. And, although Open Farm charges a flat shipping rate of $5.99 on orders below $50, this is unlikely to be an issue for customers buying in bulk.
