AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In early 2020, Ziggy Marley, his wife, and four young children welcomed a new puppy into their home named Romeo. Romeo, a Lagotto Romagnolo, quickly became a beloved member of the family. Unable to tour, Marley spent the year at home and began each morning with Romeo. The pair instantly developed a special bond ― so much so that Romeo inspired a children's book called My Dog Romeo, as well as a single by the same name on More Family Time, the follow-up children's album to the GRAMMY Award-winning Family Time.
Marley has always loved animals, but his bond with Romeo inspired him to do something to improve their health and wellness, so pets and owners can spend more quality time together. After an introduction via a mutual friend, Marley met One Farm, a health and wellness brand that makes plant-based products with organic ingredients sourced directly from the people who grow them.
"Nature has always played a major role in my life," said Ziggy Marley, "I was drawn to One Farm because of their use of whole-plant ingredients and their commitment to quality, sustainability, and transparency. Health is incredibly important to me. Playing soccer almost every day, my knees have felt the impact over the years. When I saw how active Romeo was as a puppy, I knew I needed to take care of his joint health now, to help prevent problems in the long run."
One Farm is headquartered in Austin, TX and has been making botanical wellness products for pets since 2017. "I started this company to sustainably share nature's remedies to enrich people's lives, and the health and wellness of pets is such an important aspect of people's lives," said CEO and founder Scott Cusack, "I'm thrilled to work with Ziggy, who shares our passion for quality, nature, and sustainability as well as desire to help us increase the well-being of pets and their owners."
All of the products will be manufactured and packaged by One Farm, tested and verified by a third-party accredited laboratory, and made with organic ingredients. "We believe nature designs ingredients better than any laboratory, which is why all of our products are made with whole-plant ingredients," said Chief Product Officer Taylor Coomer, who has over a decade of experience formulating plant-based products. Some of the partnership's products will contain CBD that is extracted by One Farm from organic hemp grown in Boulder County, CO.
The partnership's first product, Romeo's Agility Chews, can be purchased for $39.99 at onefarm.com. Each jar includes 35 hand crafted chews made with organic ingredients like turmeric, shitake, and cordyceps. The treats are peanut butter flavored and contain 5mg of One Farm's Organic CBD.
