Marge and Mabel’s Homemade Dog Treats was borne out of my love of food and dogs. I’ve always wanted to work for myself, and after the success of my first sell-out stall at Chesterfield Market one Saturday in 2013, I knew this was where my passion lay and threw myself into creating a quality business, selling quality products.
Our growing success meant the kitchen at home soon became too small and we now have an industrial unit with top-class stainless steel fittings and state-of-the-art ovens.
We offer a range of treats which include sweet and savoury muffins, biscuits and cakes. I create all the recipes myself and continually strive to improve the existing range and to create new treats, so be sure to keep an eye out for new additions and special edition ‘guest’ treats. We also bake to order – just let us know of any special nutritional or health needs your dog may have.
We use fine human-grade ingredients – no added salt, sugar, preservatives, colourings or flavourings. All are sourced in the UK and we buy as much as we can locally, eg. meat from our local butcher, flour from Caldwell’s Mill and organic fruit and vegetables from our local grocer who delivers weekly. Most importantly they are fully endorsed by our Labradors, Marge and Mabel!
Our treats are dehydrated and have a shelf life of around three months, alternatively the muffins and cakes can be stored in an air tight container, refrigerated and last for up to one week, or frozen and kept up to 3 months.
As well as being able to buy from our website, we are regulars on Chesterfield’s Artisan Market and frequently support local and national events. We can also be found at events such as Chatsworth Country Fair and Christmas Fair and supply an increasing number of outlets in and around Derbyshire and South Yorkshire, including Furst Class Lounge Grooming Salon, Marsh Green Farm Shop and Elsecar Heritage Centre.
Anyone is welcome to drop in for a coffee, take a look at our facilities and have a chat about any requirements – you may even see Marge and Mabel there. Of course, feel free to bring your dog and they can have a free taster of whatever we’re baking at the time.
