About Tilted Barn

Our Story

Meet Kim Good and Nicole Porterfield. The women behind the doors at Tilted Barn Pet Co, a Farm Fresh Pet Foods Inc brand.

Kim and Nicole met when Nicole was hired as a summer student for Farm Fresh Pet Foods in 2005. Farm Fresh Pet Foods was a little more than a farmer’s market brand and Kim was a family appointed distributor. The two clicked immediately and have morphed into each other’s left arms. In the spring of 2007, Matt, the original owner of Farm Fresh Pet Foods told Kim and Nicole that he wasn’t going to continue with the business. He had other endeavours he wanted to focus on (he is a rancher and engineer too!). The ladies immediately called each other and said, “What are we going to feed our dogs?” followed by “We should take it over. How hard could it be?” Famous last words. They joke now that they will write a book called “Too stupid to quit”, followed by the sequel “It was worth it”.

The business was a project that was on the corner of their desks. They worked on it late into the evenings, on weekends and during nap time while they were raising babies. During those wee hours the business started to grow. In the winter of 2017, Kim, an agronomist by trade, had come to a crossroad. Farm Fresh Pet Foods was becoming busier, and she needed to decide one or the other. The possibility and excitement of the pet industry is what gave her faith to leap. Nicole was on maternity leave with her second baby. One day on the phone Kim said to Nicole “Are we going to do this? Or are we going to DO this?” They dove in! Some big modifications were made to the product line up, they put a huge focus on customer service and set out to achieve some big goals. The ladies started knocking on doors and picking up the phone to making good old-fashioned sales calls. Some serious traction started. In the fall of 2018, they were granted their permit to export to the United States. At the same time they really focused on growing in their own backyard and worked to get their products in pet specialty stores across Canada.

In the summer of 2022, the brand was refreshed to Tilted Barn Pet Co. While the new branding was initiated because a company in the USA is also called Farm Fresh Pet Foods, it was a perfect opportunity to make a fresh, fun change that better reflects our team, approach, and products.

Kim lives in Carstairs, Alberta on her family farm with her husband and 4 dogs. Her 2 sons, Aiden and Liam are off to university. She can be found having fun with her dogs in the field or the ring, volunteering in the land trust world or watching her boys compete in track and field.

Nicole lives in Edmonton, Alberta with her husband, their 2 daughters and dog Nellie. Nicole is often sporting a latte in hand and chasing the sun or watching her eldest daughter swim.
