The Farmers Dog price

The Farmer’s Dog costs at least $2.50 a day, according to their website. The price goes up to $10+ a day for very large breeds, but the average dog owner with a mid-sized pup will pay around $4 to $6 a day before any discounts are applied.

Approximate weekly cost:

  • $17.50+ per week for 5-lb. dogs
  • $28–$42 per week for 25–50-lb. dogs
  • $70 per week for 100-lb. dogs

These prices are just guidelines, though. The Farmer’s Dog pricing varies based on your dog’s size, age, breed, and more. Additionally, the recipes you choose may affect your price, with the beef recipe currently being the least expensive option.

How much does The Farmer’s dog cost per day and per month?

How much does The Farmer’s Dog cost?Per day (2 meals per day)Per month (average of all recipes)
6 lb. Yorkshire Terrier$2.60$78.08

We know fresh dog food is expensive, but when you consider that the average American home spends roughly $63 a month on (mostly lower quality) pet food, a jump to The Farmer’s Dog might not be as much of a leap as you’d think; especially when you factor in that a fresh-food diet could minimize costly vet bills due to nutritional deficiency and disease in the future.

How much does The Farmer’s Dog topper plan cost?

The Farmer’s Dog also offers a topper plan. This plan offers smaller portions of fresh food to mix with your dog’s current kibble. This helps keep costs down while still allowing your dog to eat high-quality, nutrient-dense food every day. Partial plans aren’t offered to the smallest dog breeds, but it would be easy for you to simply make your deliveries less frequent and use a full subscription plan for the same purpose.

For mid-sized dogs, you can opt between ½ or ¼ portions, and large dogs receive the additional option of a ⅛ portion (approximately). We’ve included the calorie count so you can clearly see how the portions are reduced. Below is an estimate of The Farmer’s Dog topper plan cost.

How much does The Farmer’s Dog DIY Nutrient Mix cost?

In addition to a fresh food subscription, you have the option to make nutritionally balanced food at home with the help of The Farmer’s Dog’s DIY Nutrient Mix. 

Making food at home is challenging because you need to achieve the precise nutritional balance your dog needs. That’s what makes this product great—just mix it with the readily available ingredients listed in the recipes The Farmer’s Dog provides, and your pup will be happier than ever.

The plans begin with 1 box every 6 weeks for $30, which comes out to $5.00/week for a 30 lb. dog or $1.67/week for a 6 lb. dog.

When will I be billed?

After your initial payment, The Farmer’s Dog sets an automatic shipping and billing schedule. This is usually around every 3 to 4 weeks. However, you can adjust this schedule to fit your needs, and you can extend deliveries to as infrequently as once every 7 weeks. This is preferable if you subscribe to a full portion but plan to mix it with cheaper food, or if you have more freezer space and want to cut down on packaging waste.

You are never billed until the order is processed, which is a few days before the food ships.
