How much does Open Farm dog food cost?
|Gently Cooked fresh food||Rustic Stew wet food|
|10 lb. dog||$3.96 per day||$3.50 per day|
|30 lb. dog||$7.92 per day||$9.50 per day|
|60 lb. dog||$13.07 per day||$19.00 per day|
*These prices are subscription prices and are approximate. Your prices may vary depending on if you choose a one-time purchase, order in bulk, or if you have an active dog.
Open Farm’s Gently Cooked fresh food starts at $7.92 per pound. They price their food in standardized 16-ounce portions rather than a customized amount for your dog like some other fresh food brands.
Their rustic stew starts at $3.82 per 12.5oz. pouch. Surprisingly, the Rustic Stews cost more than fresh food for medium and large dogs, according to our calculations.
The price per unit approach isn’t as personalized as some other fresh food services, but it makes pricing transparent and straightforward.
The best way to determine your exact price is to go to Open Farm’s website and follow their feeding guide to determine how many pouches your dog should consume per day. With a little math, you can estimate a daily price.
When compared to other fresh food services like NomNomNow or The Farmer’s Dog, Open Farm is on the higher end of the price range. The price can be reduced, however, by signing up for a subscription plan rather than a one-time purchase and by ordering an 18-pound bag instead of an 8-pound bag.
If this is more food than you need, you can increase the amount of time in between each delivery. For a deeper discount, don’t forget to add the code DOGTALE15 for an additional 15% off your first subscription order.
Since each fresh food company varies in price and the types of products offered, it may make sense to compare it to a couple of other services. Check out these comparison guides for more options:
How much are their other food options?
Open Farm offers an array of food options beyond the Gently Cooked fresh food and the Rustic Stews.
- Freeze-Dried raw food: $9.99 for 3.5 oz. up to $49.99 for 22 oz.
- Dry kibble: Prices vary widely depending on recipe from $18.99 for 4 oz. of chicken and ancient grain to $119.99 for a 24-lb. bag of lamb.
- Treats: Prices range from $9.49 per bag to $10.99.
- Bone Broth: $20.99 per 3-pack.
- Goat milk and kefirs: $10.99 a bottle (only available in select stores).
As with fresh food, you can get discounts on all these products by subscribing rather than placing a one-off order, and by using discount code DOGTALE15. Subscriptions can be changed or canceled at any time.
How much does the supplemental plan cost?
Some of Open Farm’s products work great as a meal topper. This is a great way to boost your dog’s nutrition (or keep picky eaters interested) without paying the full cost. They don’t offer a specific supplemental plan per se, but they provide you several ways to supplement your dog’s food.
You can choose to top your dog’s regular food with any of Open Farm’s products, but they offer small 5.5 oz. boxes of Rustic Stew for $31.99 for this purpose.
You are also given the option to add bone broth to your dog’s regular kibble to add extra nutrition, moisture, and flavor to your dog’s diet. It costs $20.99 for a 3-pack of bone broth.
Finally, Open Farm suggests using their Freeze-Dried Raw food as a treat or topper, since the large, airy pieces add a nice, crunchy, nutritious boost to any food. It starts at just $9.99.
How much is shipping?
There is free shipping across most of the continental US with purchases over $50, which is easy to meet. A flat shipping fee of $5.99 is applied to orders under $50.
Are there other Open Farm costs?
There is no sign-up fee for a subscription and you can cancel at any time without being charged. If you aren’t happy with your purchase, you can return the food to Open Farm within 15 days of your purchase.
When will I be billed?
You will be billed when each subscription order ships. When setting up the subscription plan, you have the option to choose the shipping frequency, so you will be billed only as frequently as you desire more food.
