Why Fresh Food?
ARF hand selects each ingredient so you can trust its quality and its source. There are no unnamed animal fats or animal byproducts in our food - simply 100% grass fed, free range, and local farm raised meats. We only use organic vegetables and fruits to ensure that no potentially harmful chemicals make it into your dog's food bowl. Even the required amounts of vitamins and nutrients are derived from food. We choose to use food sources, such as vegetables, fruits, seeds, and herbs rather than adding pills or powdered supplements containing ingredients from unknown origins.
Just like people, dogs need whole, fresh food with natural vitamins and minerals rather than processed food containing additives and preservatives. Simply feeding your dog fresh food, however, may not be sufficient. Dogs' diets must be complete and balanced, meaning all their nutritional requirements are consistently met. ARF has done the exhaustive research and undergone thorough testing to ensure our homemade dog food meets all the nutritional requirements for adult dogs as established by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). We love our dogs and want them to live long and healthy lives.
