Field And Forest Information
Field And Forest is a South African dog food brand. They are owned by Montego, which as several sub-brands in South Africa.
You can check out our review of Montego here.
Field And Forest is by far the best sub-brand offered by Montego and includes high-quality named meat and fish ingredients along with favorable nutrition, which we will discuss later.
The creation of this brand is almost certainly a reflection of the growing awareness around pet food.
Field And Forest Product Range
Field And Forest have five recipes in total, all of which are dry dog food recipes. Field And Forest do not produce any wet/canned dog food at this time.
This range includes some specialized recipes, such as two recipes for puppies. However, unlike some other Montego brands, Field And Forest do not produce a senior dog food recipe.
Field And Forest Nutrition
Field And Forest offer significantly better nutrition than the other Montego brands. This nutritional profile consists of above-average proportions of protein and fat and a below-average proportion of carbohydrates.
This type of nutritional profile is rare to find in South African dog food, particularly non-imported dog food.
Field And Forest Ingredients
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
Field And Forest use a moderate range of high-quality meat and fish ingredients. This range includes some of the industry favorites like Turkey and Salmon. However, this also includes some less common ingredients like Duck, Tuna, and Lamb.
Other Notable Ingredients
Peas, Chickpeas feature in Field And Forest recipes. Legumes such as these are the most popular non-grain plant-based ingredients in dog food. They are used so much because they are relatively inexpensive and can provide nutrition that is high in protein.
Eggs are often included in recipes from Field And Forest. Eggs are a fantastic addition to dog food and can provide excellent nutrition. Also, nutrition from Eggs is exceptionally digestible, which can make it superior to other sources.
Field And Forest use Chicken Fat in some of its recipes. Chicken Fat is a regular addition to dog food and is used to enhance its flavor and boost the level of animal fat in the recipe. You can read more about Chicken Fat in our article, Chicken Fat In Dog Food.
Flaxseed is added to dog food to boost the levels of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Flaxseed is chosen for this task as it is probably the best plant-based source of this beneficial fat. You can learn more about Flaxseed in our article Flaxseed In Dog Food.
Beet Pulp is used in dog food as it is a cheap and reliable source of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber can be critical to some dogs to ensure regular digestion and stools. However, beyond its fiber content, Beet Pulp provides very little nutritional value. You can read more about Beet Pulp in our article Dried Beet Pulp In Dog Food.
Field And Forest Animal Testing
We have no information on what type of animal testing if any, that Field And Forest or Montego participates in.
We strongly believe that invasive or laboratory-style testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which we hope will be eliminated.
Field And Forest Recalls
However, Field And Forest’s parent brand, Montego, have issued recalls. You can read about these on our Montego Page, which you can find here.

Best of Field And Forest
Turkey + Duck Puppy Review
Field And Forest’s puppy food recipes are some of the best available in South Africa, especially at their price range. The recipe uses a mix of Turkey and Duck to provide a satisfactory proportion of protein and fat.
This mix also includes some poultry liver. Liver is a fantastic addition to dog food as it can provide additional protein and fat as well as beneficial micronutrients that traditional meat cuts lack.
Game + Lamb All Breed Adult Review
Field + Forest’s Game + Lamb recipe is probably their most unique offering. Exotic meat ingredients like those contained in this recipe rarely make it into South African dog food.
The recipe uses a mix of Lamb, Turkey, Ostrich, and Game to provide a significant portion of protein and fat that would be satisfactory for the majority of dogs.
