From our family to yours…

Darrell “Tuffy” Nelson, father of current Owner Kenny Nelson, started Pine Lakes Feed in Perham, Minnesota in 1947. After returning to Perham from college in 1964, Kenny developed the Tuffy’s Dog Food Company in partnership with his father. This was an excellent extension of the business considering most of the raw materials used in dog food were already at Pine Lakes Feed.

After 39 years of manufacturing economy line pet food, Tuffy’s leaped into the super premium pet food Industry and developed a nationally known product called NutriSource Super Premium Pet Food.

Experiencing success within the super premium lines, Tuffy’s expanded in 2007 with their holistic line of pet food—Pure Vita. Again, Tuffy’s was thriving in the super premium lines and, in 2009, brought in an organic line of pet food, called Natural Planet Organics.

Tuffy’s Pet Foods along with Kenny’s Candy & NutHeads Chocolate Factory, are all companies under the family of ownership known as KLN Family Brands.
