Pleasant Plain, Ohio (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
Americans are increasingly turning to honest, authentic products made from farm-sourced ingredients for their families. Now, with the introduction of LM Farms™ Nutrition Boosters and a new line of biscuits and treats ,they can do the same for their pets.
For more than 40 years, LM Farms™ has produced natural products for small animals and birds. This past spring, the much-loved and trusted pet-specialty brand expanded its product line to dogs and cats. By introducing more than 50 new artisan style, small-batch products, LM Farms™ is making farm-fresh offerings more accessible to pets everywhere.
“LM Farms™ was ahead of its time,” said Tina Le Lay, LM Farms™ Senior Director of Marketing. “Forty years ago, when they started with a small farm in the small town of Pleasant Plain, no one was talking about the importance of local, farm-sourced ingredients. Today, with the expansion into new categories, we are staying true to the brand’s core values and foundation. That’s why we are thrilled to expand beyond small animals with the introduction of our wholesome and natural products to dogs and cats, as well.”
Research shows a growing trend towards farm-sourced foods according to The Hartman Group's annual "Looking Ahead: Food Culture" study, farmers markets and real, locally grown food are a rising trend this year. As consumers extend these ideals to their pets, the market for farm-fresh products, sourced from local producers will continue to grow.

In parallel with this launch, LM Farms™ announces a licensing agreement with the National FFA Organization, formerly known as Future Farmers of America. As a supporter of National FFA, LM Farms™ will donate a portion of every purchase to this worthy organization dedicated to the future of American agriculture through agricultural education. National FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Offering a variety of farm-sourced, natural products, LM Farms™ aligns with the National FFA’s mission to support American agriculture.
“We’re pleased to be partnering with National FFA,” said Tina Le Lay of LM Farms™. “We currently purchase from local farmers across America, and the National FFA’s mission to prepare the next generation of America’s agricultural leaders is something that’s critical to all of us who care about sustainability and quality of the global food supply.”
