In 1982 Mr. Gerrit de Weerd (a consultant in the field of animal feed and animal health in the Netherlands and abroad) was asked to put together a dogfood that could be used as a neutral food in a scientific research on dog food.
He composed a high quality dog food with a pressed pellet; based on beef from Dutch milk cows; without any chemical additives like antioxidants, artificial colourings, flavourings or aroma's, emulsifiers or preservatives.
A complete, healthy and clean dog food for every dog of any age, any breed and any condition. The research was completed after two years and the production of this "all life stage" trial food was supposed to stop.
However, after the research period during the year of 1984, several breeders insisted that this dog food should stay available since the results they saw on their dogs were overwhelmingly good and beyond belief. Farm Food was born.
For several years the popularity of the dog food grew mainly through verbal advertising. Enthusiast dog owners, breeders, instructors and trainers stood at the cradle of Farm Food . The basic composition nowadays is for the most part identical to that of twenty years ago.
The formula has proven itself repeatedly. Naturally the product is in the course of time improved by own and scientific insights.
Farm Food is a family business. Gerrit build the company together with his wife and their two sons. Nowadays there are ten people working with the Farm Food Company.
