 Our Story

On Benji's Farm, we believe that our dogs deserve to be as happy as they make us. We also feel that health and happiness go hand in hand (or should we say paw in hand.) That's why we created dog treats that harness the Power of Plants to not only "treat" happiness but health as well.

Partner with us to help make our treats available to all dog lovers who value doggy wellness.

Our Family

Benji's Dad Dr. Rocky is a PhD botanist who has studied medicinal plants for over a decade. Benji's Mom Allison is a health, wellness and physical education teacher who understands the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Our company was founded on the expectation that dog treats should be more than just a tasty snack. Together we worked to realize our expectations and create treats for Benji that are holistically formulated: addressing both his happiness and his health. After countless hours in the kitchen, and hundred of batches that Benji has personally taste tested, we are happy to offer Benji's Farm treats to you and your furry family members!

Our Treats

Flavorful AND Functional:

Our treats are made using only the finest organic, plant based ingredients. They are hand cut, crunchy oven baked and expertly flavored with peanut butter, cinnamon and spice.

Each recipe contains a carefully selected blend of herbal ingredients targeting a specific part of doggy health. If you are looking to help calm your anxious or energetic puppy (SLEEPY), your older dog needs help getting up and moving again (HIPPY) or have another reason to expect more from your dog treats, you are sure to find a variety that helps both you and your furry friend find happiness!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is keeping Benji away from the treats!

But we may also face challenges in both manufacturing and distribution.

We have not yet run a batch of our treats using the exact equipment we intend to purchase, so minor tweaks to our process may be in order. However, we have developed a close relationship with the equipment manufacturer and are confident we can overcome any challenges.

Another challenge we face is in the distribution of our treats. We could just slap a wagon on Benji and "pay" him with treats to deliver our product, but he is already too spoiled. We are working with several distributors to take over that function and will soon decide on our best option.
