Nature’s Feed’s Favorites

Bone broth is probably my favorite! It is an awesome way to hydrate pet food, which is so important. It’s a great way to enhance the pet food at a low cost and easy to use. Most dogs love it and it can be given to cats too!”

Why Shop Local

Nature’s Feed truly believes that there is a lot of value in partnering with a local natural pet food store. They are able to provide products and education on basic pet challenges. Most of your small, local pet food stores are more knowledgeable than big box stores. Many Nature’s Feed customers are actually able to save money on vet bills by feeding their pet a better diet and using some basic supplements like digestive enzymes and probiotics. Also, when you spend money at local, small business most of the dollars stay within the local community.

Nature’s Feed is involved with the local community in several ways! They host pet adoptions and pet nail clipping events regularly. They also have a loyalty program where customers earn a credit for store use or they can donate it to the charity that quarter. Nature’s Feed also attends various community events and provides educational seminars for pet parents and the 4H club in town.

Some people think that small businesses have to charge more for their products, and that is not always true. Nature’s Feed is very competitive and prices are usually at or below some of the large online retailers. They have monthly sales, frequent buyer programs, and in-store events that help bring the cost of products down.
