How It All Began

Lisa Marshall, president and co-founder of American Pet Diner, Inc., began the pet food company from an idea surrounding her husband, Reese Marshall's high-quality timothy hay he farmed in rural Nevada. The Marshall family created the template for quality hay, and formed American Pet Diner (now American Pet) in 1996. Farming high quality hay, vegetables, grains, and commodities in the high deserts of Nevada allowed Lisa to create a market for many of the crops Reese produced. Today, American Pet has added farming operations in Idaho and Washington State with years of experience in growing and offering premium timothy hay products, and moved our corporate headquarters to Buhl, Idaho in 2017.
