Kate Farms products.

Kate Farms' nutritional products are one-of-a-kind. The company’s founders, Richard and Michelle Laver, came up with the idea after seeing their daughter, Kate, struggle to thrive on traditional tube-feeding formulas. The goal: to develop nutritionally advanced formulas and shakes for tube feeding and added nutrition. Now, more than 12 years later, Kate is thriving and Kate Farms is America’s #1 recommended plant-based formula.

Kate Farms nutritional products are some of our best-sellers, and they’re a part of our Autoship & Save 5% program. The company offers a mix of adult and pediatric formulas for those with nutritional challenges, including diabetes, kidney disease, and low weight. Here, we highlight four of our favorite Kate Farms items. 

What Makes Kate Farms Nutritional Products Unique?

All of Kate Farms' nutritional products use organic, plant-based ingredients. The formulas are good for you, delicious, and don’t contain any artificial sweeteners or allergens. Furthermore, many of Kate Farms’ formulas are compatible with tube-feeding.
