With the holidays approaching, Lauren Carberry of Weymouth is busy baking special Christmas “cookies” for pampered pooches all over the South Shore. She is the owner of Carberry Kitchen, a business that produces grain-free dog treats using local and organic ingredients.
Carberry named her products—Lala ‘n Boo Baked Goods and Jesse’s Jerky—after her dogs. All of Carberry Kitchen treats are grain free and made with organic ingredients. Dog biscuit flavors are beef cheese, chicken carrot, salmon sweet potato, pumpkin peanut butter, apple bacon, buttermilk molasses, banana honey and fresh breath. The jerky is made using just one ingredient (beef liver, chicken breast or sweet potato) that is sliced and dehydrated. All the ingredients are sourced from local farms.
“Our recipes are based on foods that you would like to eat yourself. We never use salt, sugar, corn, soy, wheat, preservatives or chemicals,” says Carberry, “because every family member deserves wholesome.” In addition to buying the products online, you can also find Carberry Kitchen products at a few South Shore retailers, like The Fruit Center Marketplace in Hingham and Milton, The Market at The Pinehills, Rosa Farms in Hanover and Buddies Pet Boutique in Marshfield, which carries treats in bulk so that customers can mix up a bag of their dog’s favorite flavors.
