Animals Farm’s menu is loaded with fresh and local ingredients from a farm in Mendocino, California, and is available online and at farmers markets in the US and UK.
The farm, which has raised about $1.6 million from investors and is the subject of a crowdfunding campaign, is the latest in a line of animal farm products to take off.

It raises more than 80 cattle, including sheep and goats, and has a greenhouse in Mendo, which produces about 50,000 litres of milk per day.
The meat is sold at the local markets.
The food is made from the same organic ingredients as the farm, and the farm’s owners, Tom and Nancy Dominguez, say they have never raised animals.
“We don’t feed them anything,” said Tom Domingue, the farm manager, who said he had always been against raising animals for human consumption.
“But it is a way of life.”
We’ve raised chickens and goats in the past and I’ve always wanted to do it again, but we’ve been trying to do more with our own resources,” he said.
The Domingues have raised pigs and chickens in the same way, but the process has become less sustainable.
“It’s a big issue when you’re raising animals.” “
If it rains three or four times a year, it’s a lot harder to get water for that kind of operation,” said Ms Domingua.
“It’s a big issue when you’re raising animals.”
She said the farm would like to raise more chickens, as well as other animals.
It has a large herd of cows, but Mr Dominguel said the herd was limited because of the drought.
“Our cattle are very healthy, and they’re not going to go crazy,” he explained.
“They are happy and healthy, so they just need more time to recover.”
As long as we’re able to sustain our business and maintain our standards, then we will continue to do the best we can.
“And I think we will get more customers if people know about the farm.””
I think we have a lot of good customers that want to try something new,” Mr Domsue said.
