About Us

Rural Roots

Artisan Farms Natural Pet Treats was established in 2008 in the heart of beautiful Bruce County, Ontario.  A county that prides itself as being a provider for local foods to the Ontario market and has self dubbed itself as  "The Beef Capital" of Ontario. The economy of Bruce County revolves around agriculture and the pride of supplying quality food is apparent in any community within it's borders. 

This pride was instilled in Chet and D'elle Calhoun, Artisan Farms Owners from a young age.  D'elle grew up on a family dairy farm near Arthur, ON.  Her family was one of the first in Canada to introduce Pro-biotics to animals in the 1980's and later formed one of the first Pro-biotic companies specializing in animal health.  

Chet Calhoun grew up on a Beef Farm near Chesley, ON. In 2003 Calhoun Beef Farms entered into a partnership to start a beef processing facility specializing in providing local beef to the Ontario market.  Chet took on the role of General Manager of this operation. It is here where Chet developed his passion for local, high quality foods, and his knowledge of food safety practices.   

D'elle and Chet combined their collective expertise and their love of animals to create a truly unique pet treat company, Artisan Farms.  The company started with humble roots in their family home's garage, and slowly expanded into the company it is today.
