DIXON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Superior Farms Pet Provisions is becoming well known for its natural, wholesome pet treats and chews throughout the country. That reputation is about to get even stronger, as they have signed an exclusive agreement to partner with Pitman Farms and their brand of Mary’s Pet Food, which features a raw pet food diet made with organic chicken, and free range duck and turkey.
Pitman Farms is a vertically integrated company, controlling their product from the farms to feeding to processing and transportation.
“This is a great alignment for Superior Farms Pet Provisions,” said Gary Pfeiffer, President of SFPP. We are both California-based ‘farm to pet’ companies and we use single source animal protein. We are very excited to bring these high-quality products to market nationally.”
Similar to SFPP, Mary’s Pet Food is also grain and gluten free. Their all-life-stage diet for dogs also utilizes all organic fruits and vegetables in their formulas. Both companies also have a strong work ethic for success, as Pitman Farms is family-owned and operated, and SFPP is an employee-owned company.
“Superior Farms Pet Provisions has an understanding and knowledge of the pet industry. We’re good at being farmers of organic chickens, turkeys and ducks,” said David Pitman, third generation in the family business. His grandfather started raising turkeys in 1954.
“I always make a joke that it is a family business for all the good and the bad,” said Pitman. “I enjoy working with my family all the time. I also enjoy changing how the industry does things and opening a lot of eyes - whether it is animal welfare, air chill, organic… we keep pushing the envelope. And the best thing is that customers now are there to support pushing the envelope. It’s about quality and the overall package.”
Superior Farms Pet Provisions plans on helping tell the great story of the Mary’s brand in the marketplace. “I’m hoping that this can bring us a more complete line for raw pet foods in the industry and future products for pet treats.”
The new products will be featured with a new packaging design at the SFPP booth 1313 at Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida next week.
Superior Farms Pet Provisions and Dakota Treats produce natural lamb, venison, and beef pet treats and chews from its own facilities in USA and New Zealand. All products are all-natural as well as grain and gluten free. Founded in 2012, they work in direct partnership with their suppliers, including Superior Farms Lamb, and pride themselves on being a vertically integrated company with a secure supply chain to provide safe products for pets.
