Nourish Your Pet The Natural Way

Ready-to-serve, handcrafted food for your dog made with fresh, seasonal produce and sustainably sourced meat from local Carolina farms.

For the Love of... Local & Organic All of our recipes are made with nutrient-rich fresh, seasonal produce and sustainably sourced meat from local North and South Carolina farms. We use organic as much as possible because it is healthier and easier on our pets’ organs since it is free of pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals. It’s a special and conscious choice we make to deliver a diet more nourishing to your pet’s digestive system. We also offer a variety of blends to alternate between in order to optimize your pet’s health.

Our goal is to be as earth friendly as possible while providing a healthy alternative to commercial dog food.

For the Love of... Our Farms & Farmers We know all our farms and farmers, so we know exactly where all of our ingredients come from.

For the Love of... Saving Food Waste There is so much waste in the world so we're working hard to reduce food waste by sourcing some of the less beautiful, nutrient-rich produce. It's still perfectly good but often thrown away because it is not “pretty” enough for the store shelves.

We also source organ meat from our farmers because these meats are frequently discarded due to the discriminating human palate. Organ meats are more densely packed with just about every nutrient, including heavy doses of B vitamins such as: B1, B2, B6, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as minerals such as iron, phosphorus, copper, magnesium and more.

For the Love of... 100% Recyclable Packaging We know, we know, plastics aren’t the best but our BPA Free and FDA approved packaging is 100% recyclable (Recycle No7 pouch and labels). After use, please wash, dry and reuse. Or you can recycle the pouches with other plastic films and plastic grocery bags at various stores around Charlotte. Learn more about recycling plastic films at plasticfilmrecycling.org

We are currently researching and working on compostable packaging that is safe for our products and your pups. It turns out, compostables don’t necessarily outshine plastics when it comes to environmental benefits. Why? Since our customers are located in Mecklenburg County, there is no commercial curbside pick up for compostables so we’re working on options for a completely home compostable package that we’ll transition to once we’re 100% sure it’s the right solution. In the meantime, please reuse and recycle our packaging as much as you can.
