Farm House Barkery(R) Dog Treats were developed because of a desire to provide a better type of treat for the Pups in my family. I had been making All Natural, Fresh Oven Baked treats for a couple of years when one of my cats became ill late one night. After calling our family Vet out late in the evening, I baked a batch of Blueberry dog treats to take to him the next day. During the follow up visit for Hannah, the cat, he encouraged me to go to Market with the treats.
After much hemming and hawing, I decided to give it a whirl, and taste tested the treats across several states. If my friends had Pups, they received treats and they provided input so the recipes could be tweaked to what they are currently.
We purchase fresh, local in season items when we are able, believing it is important to support local as much as we can. Our treats are whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and natural Peanut Butter for a taste bud explosion of natural goodness in both our regular line, and Brown Rice/Oat line for those Pups who are allergy sensitive. We also carry a grain free Nekked Sweet Potato Dog Treat that has proven to be a top seller. As it's name implies, it's nothing but the Spud so it's a taste that is all Mother Nature!
We avoid adding salt and sugar to our products, with the exception of sugar in the icing of our specialty treats, believing special occasions call for special treating, and the salt that comes all ready added to our Natural Peanut Butter. To sweeten our fruit and vegetable treats, we use home made applesauce. We take the extra steps: slow roasting our Sweet Potatoes, use flavorful Blueberries, chop Fresh Apples, slice whole Bananas, grate fresh Carrots, roast whole Pumpkins in season, and use only Natural Peanut Butter to avoid hydrogenated oils, because that's how we do things Fresh on the Farm!
Believing that we are a community, we donate a portion of our profit to charity on a quarterly basis. Most of the donations are to Pet Charities, but once a year, we do a Dog Treat fund raiser in which $1.00 of each bag is donated to Relay for Life. The Relay for Life Fund Raiser usually runs from January through the Relay Event in April of each year.
And while we mentioned our Pup family, let us introduce them to you: McKenzie (our Princess Basset Hound), Ace (our happy go lucky Yellow Lab), and Buddy (our guardian of the Farm and mixed Lab). We also have 2 Queen Bee cats: Hannah and Abby who prefer to remain anonymous at this point in time. They enjoy taunting the Terrific Trio so as a result, they do not want to give up their ability to go stealth if needed.
