How We Raise Our Dogs

Life on the Farm

Our dogs live outdoors, within the safety of a perimeter fence, guarding all of our animals, which includes chickens, ducks, turkeys, a rabbit, goats, sheep, cats and our family cow. They spend time with the family every day, including children and babies. They are loved deeply, fulfilled with meaningful work and fed with their optimal health in mind.

Fed Naturally

We strive to feed our dogs an optimal, species-appropriate diet, just as we do for ourselves and all of our animals. Our dogs are fed a natural diet of meat (including organ meat), bones, vegetables, herbs, fruit and natural supplements that vary daily, weekly and seasonally for optimal health.

Our feeding ground rules are based on what we learned by reading The Complete Herbal Handbook for Dog and Cat by Juliette de Baïracli Levy and through the website of holistic veterinarian Peter Dobias, as well as other resources and general knowledge we have gained from learning about nutrition and diet from the Weston A. Price Foundation, the Chris Kresser Institute and many others.
