If anyone’s worth spending hours over a hot stove, it’s pets. But who has the time? Open Farm. Not only is their new diet home-made, it’s cooked very slowly to preserve even more of the essential vitamins and minerals your pet needs.
LESS HEAT, MORE NUTRIENTS
Processed foods are cooked at very high temperatures that often destroy many of food’s natural nutrients. Open Farm’s Gently Cooked food uses a process that’s the opposite of that, called Sous Vide. In French, this translates to “under vacuum.” That’s because food is placed in a plastic pouch or a glass jar and cooked in a water bath for a long time at a low temperature. This ensures that everything cooks evenly, killing all possible bacteria, while also keeping heat-sensitive nutrients intact.
YOU COULD ACTUALLY EAT IT TOO
That is, if your pet’s willing to share. The ingredients are 100% human-grade, including humanely raised, sustainably sourced proteins. And unlike heavily processed foods, you can actually see all the goodness. Spinach and kale (high in vitamin A, C and K) are there to support cardiovascular and liver health. Plus, pumpkin (a great source of fiber and beta-carotene) supports digestive and urinary health.
WORRIED ABOUT DCM? THIS IS A GREAT OPTION.
DCM (Dilated cardiomyopathy) gave dog parents a big scare in the last year, but you can feel good giving your best friend Open Farm. All of their Gently Cooked recipes are formulated to support heart health.
IT’S EASY TO SWITCH RECIPES. AND RECYCLE.
Varying the protein sources, recipes and even brands you feed your pet is really important for balancing their diet. That’s why we love that Open Farm Gently Cooked makes their recipes easy to rotate. Each one is gentle on your pet’s stomach and adds a different element of their total nutrition needs. And on top of that, all of their plastic containers can be sent to Terracycle to eliminate packaging waste.
WHERE CAN YOU FIND IT?
Since it’s part of the freezer section, Open Farm Gently Cooked is only available in stores. Look for them in select Kriser’s stores:
