Last summer Pecan Bluff Farm’s own Chief Operating Officer, Raelynn, had a grand idea. She wanted to create wholesome, natural dog treats for the doggies of central Texas.
Hank’s Natural Choice Dog Treats are gourmet snacks made from Pecan Bluff Farm’s own farm fresh eggs plus freshly ground oat flour and natural peanut butter. We already knew they were good ~ our three beloved dogs confirmed it! But it’s been so much fun for Raelynn to see so many pups at the Waco Downtown Farmers Market fall in love with her special recipe treats, too!
Hank’s Natural Choice Dog Treats are named after our wonderful farm dog, Hank. He is in charge of ranch security and he does a fine job of it. We love him and he is the perfect mascot for our delicious treats!
Other official taste testers are our amazing livestock guardian dogs, Angel and Gabby. They work hard protecting our big flock of hens and our goats, and we love to reward them with our freshly baked treats. They love them, too!
Becoming licensed to sell dog treats in the state of Texas was a learning process for Raelynn. She’s been baking with mom since she was a toddler, so recipe development was a breeze for her. She wanted to create a treat that was healthful, delicious, and that could stay fresh with no additives or preservatives. With those high standards, she created a marvelous recipe and her expert baking skills helped her quickly find the perfect balance of flavors that dogs just can’t resist! Then she had some new challenges. She applied with the Texas State Chemist’s Office for a license to sell and sent off her product to have a laboratory nutrition analysis performed. Next she submitted her labels for approval per state law. Finally, she developed packaging that keeps her natural treats fresh and delicious. Whew! With great treats and her approved license in hand she was ready to sell!
The product development for Hank’s Natural Choice Dog Treats was a long process and Raelynn learned so much from the experience. But, best of all, she now gets to share her wonderful, freshly baked treats with lots and lots of happy dogs.
Raelynn has lots of new choices for your pet ~ tiny bite-sized Peanut Butter Puffs for training or for small dogs, bags of treats to last all week, hearty bones for large breeds, or individually wrapped snacks you can take anywhere for your pooch.
Dog Day at Waco Downtown Farmers Market this Saturday, May 18th, is a great time to treat your dog to the tastiest, most wholesome treats around!
