“Hi… My friend Molly (Molly Mutt) brought home two containers of food for my 13 year old dog Fanny last week. Fanny is suffering from a tumor in her bladder and has been having a hard time keeping food down. Since switching to your food, Fan has her huge appetite back and is keeping her food down. Even the Dr. said Fan’s tests look so much better. Your food has changed our lives. I can’t thank you enough!!”

“We LOVE smallbatch! I used to make Ruby’s food myself with cobbled together raw ingredients I could find in supermarket. She did well on it but I was never sure if it might be missing something important for her diet.

Enter smallbatch. Their food is fantastic! Ruby loves it! smallbatch and their food stand for everything I stand for. It’s organic. It’s local. It’s made with love and care! I’m so glad I can get my dog this kind of healthy, high quality food. I feel sure now that Ruby is getting a complete diet and it keeps her going strong at 11 and beyond.”

Sunny & Schatzi

“When we rescued Schatzi, she was quite underweight and her coat was dull and lifeless. I find it interesting how as we have slowly introduced smallbatch into her diet, she is starting to develop a taste for other healthy things: fruit, vegetables, nuts – whereas before, she ignored anything that wasn’t kibble or packaged treats. Sunny loves eating all of those healthy things. To me, this seems like a logical proof to the ‘raw diet theory’.

Schatzi has since filled out, her coat is luxuriously thick, even her nails seem denser and more vital. She’s growing up into Sunny’s big little sister!”

Catherine & Daniel

“Our pug loves his smallbatch raw food and so do we. We feel good about feeding it to him because we know smallbatch uses high-quality, natural ingredients, many of which are locally produced.

It’s the healthiest way to feed our dog and we also like supporting a local, small business – not to mention we think David and Diana are fantastic!”

“I have 2 small dogs that thrive on smallbatch. It’s a pleasure doing business with David and Diana. I know that only the finest ingredients are used and that a dash of love goes into each batch! smallbatch makes my babies healthy and energetic and I will continue to keep them on their smallbatch diets.”

“Mom has had me try a few of the raw diets out there, from the west coast to the east and back again, and let me tell you smallbatch is where it’s at! I got bored with the other diets, there were times where I wouldn’t eat for days because I am your standard particular pooch and I like change, but the catch was trying some of the other flavors besides the chicken made my tummy so mad! Mom also didn’t like being up all night taking my sick little self out so whats a boy to do?

I’ve been on smallbatch for several months now and I try all the flavors! I eat them all up without any belly problems, which mom is so happy about. I am a happy healthy little man who loves the food, the people and the concept of smallbatch! You guys are great!!!”

“Sunny has been eating raw food since we got her from the pound as a 12 week old puppy. She’s got loads of energy and a very happy disposition.

Her coat is lustrous. She gets an amazing amount of compliments from random people who are attracted by her joyfulness and good looks. We’re sure some of this has to do with her food.”

– Dina and Auryn



“Our kitty Tatiana has thrived on a raw food diet prepared by David since she came to us as an abandoned baby 5 years ago. She enjoys a variety of smallbatch snd we know that only the finest organic ingredients are used to create each and every recipe. We are so thankful she doesn’t have to eat junk commercial/food.”

“Hi! I just want to tell you how much I love you and your food. I started my dog on smallbatch when he was 6 months old and the change has been amazing! I had been looking into raw food for a while and then my dog stopped eating his kibble all together so I took the plunge. Firstly, he stopped shedding, which is super awesome. He also stopped twisting his stupid puppy ankles wrists knees and elbows, and puppy anti inflamatories are not cheap…His poop doesn’t even smell bad anymore! His wrestling matches with my boyfriend last 15 minutes longer. Smallbatch has not stopped his mailman aggression but I never had high hopes for that anyways. SO we just wanted to say thanks.”

– Lots of licks from Dieter Von Poopenwolf, the black german shepherd and Emily!



“smallbatch is a life saver! David and Diana consistently help us create an allergy blend for our dog Roxie that her stomach tolerates and also satisfies her palette. The quality of the meat and the user friendly packaging made it easy to switch to a raw food diet.

David or Diana responds to our food requests right away and offer valuable insight in how to maintain and improve Roxie’s overall health. We consider smallbatch to be an instrumental part of our holistic dog care.”

“Hi! My name is Ziggy and I’m nearly 8 years old. I’m a very active Australian Shepherd and I compete in dog agility with my companion Gerri. We LOVE agility and together we’ve earned some pretty cool titles (really just a bunch of letters that go after my name). Next to agility I LOVE me some Smallbatch raw food!!! Gerri likes Smallbatch too because it’s it smells SOOOO fresh but mostly I think she serves it to me in my silver bowl (well stainless steel is like silver…right?) because she knows that Smallbatch uses ingredients that are good for me—like organic veggies and free range grass fed meats that are locally sourced and sustainable! OMG I’m a very smart aussie dog but even I’m amazed that the company is so conscientious! Oh and other amazing things that you get when you eat Smallbatch raw food—very white teeth and very small poop! I KNOW it’s amazing huh!? Thank you for letting me tell everyone how much I love your food and for showing everyone how handsome I am.

Hugs and licks,

– Ziggy

(oh…because I don’t have thumbs I can’t type so my companion Gerri typed this but the sentiment is ALL MINE)”



“So, it turns out that my owners make amazing food for furry ones. I have been on this food they make since I was 8 weeks old as a hungry, feral kitty right off the streets and into their home. I am told by all that meet me that I’m the most social, stunning, ‘dog like’ feline ever…whatever that means! I attribute my excellent health, appearance, and demeanor to all the love, joy, and fun put into every smallbatch meal I have ever had, and I’ve had them all. But, then again I am biased. To all the pups and kitties out there, Enjoy!”
