Who We Are

The Farmer’s Dog was born from a mission to change the landscape of pet health, providing dogs and their humans with honest, smart, and simple care. We’re starting by radically improving the $90 billion pet food industry, replacing bulk bags of highly-processed mystery pellets with a personalized subscription service that sends healthy, freshly-made dog food directly to customers’ doors. Our ultimate goal is to create innovative, delightful experiences across all aspects of pet care, and we believe our direct-to-consumer business model, holistic approach to growth, and dynamic culture uniquely position us to shepherd this backwards industry into the future. 

To date, The Farmer’s Dog has delivered over 200 million meals nationwide and raised over $150M in funding to help us build a company as healthy as the dogs who are eating those meals. Join us as we continue to develop ways of bringing peace of mind to customers, health to their companions, and much-needed change to the way people feed and care for their pets.


Where You'll Come In

Are you a dog person who has always thought that there was a better way to deliver service - simply, easily and with love - just like our food. Do you have a desire to engage in meaningful conversations while helping our customers improve the quality of their dog’s lives? Are you passionate about the idea of disrupting the pet food industry and providing healthy human grade food for dogs?

An Insider's view of The Farmer's Dog

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's so refreshing to be able to walk into my job knowing that I'm truly making a difference. Every person on our team believes in our product and mission, so motivation and passion comes organically. Did I mention that our office is full of dogs?


Customer Experience

What projects are you most excited about?

We are changing the way people think about pet food by delivering fresh, healthy meals for dogs in personalized meal plans. Supply chain is exciting because it's basically the key differentiating factor for how we can be the most cost efficient, really impact the consumer experience for the better, and always make sure the dogs get fed.


Head of Operations

How does the company support your career growth?

I feel a crazy opportunity to grow my career the way I want to at The Farmer's Dog. We are encouraged to take risks and are surrounded by genuine, loving, and compassionate people. The culture is supportive of both dog and human health and wellness, and I love that I get to help dogs live longer lives with my dog, Emmy, by my side.

What is your vision for the company?

The Farmer's Dog is on a mission to change the way people think about feeding their pets. Our goal is to educate & give people the tools to give their pets the healthiest diet. We believe that once the world is educated about fresh food, people will stop feeding their pets processed food and the life expectancy for the entire species will increase.


Co-Founder & Head of Community

What does your typical day look like?

As CEO, I spend my days making the hard decisions, hiring the best people, protecting the team, and making sure the company is financially sound. I also get to choose which dogs are allowed in the office (all of them).
