Any animal lover can tell you just how important their pets are to them.  I, myself, am deeply attached to my two precious dogs, Noah and Ellie.  This love for animals and for their health is just one of the reasons I enjoy working for Omega Fields!  With each bag of Omega Horseshine or Omega Canine Shine that I see purchased daily, I think of the animals receiving that bag and how they will live a happier and fuller life because of our product.  I also love telling customers about our Omega Nibbler horse treats and our Omega Nugget dog treats!  My dogs love Omega Nuggets and I don’t have to feel guilty feeding a large amount of treats, because they are so healthy for them!
Daily I receive calls from customers sharing with me their wonderful experiences with our products and how much they have helped their horses and dogs!  It is wonderful to know I am part of a team so dedicated to helping others and their animals!







Just the Flax

Posted on Leave a comment

Flax seed has been known for thousands of years in cultures all over the world as a true super food.  Omega 3 fatty acids have become a buzzword in the health and nutrition industry for many years now.   As the understanding, acceptance and demand for Omega-3 rich ingredients expanded, are especially from whole grain flaxseed, in 2004 we decided that the time was right to jump in and purchase our pioneering predecessor ENRECO, Inc. who had over 17 years of milling blending experience.  Like many small business owners, our experience has been a mixture of exhilaration, optimism and fear. ENRECO had an award-winning, uniquely formulated flax based horse supplement called “Omega Horseshine”. We read the reviews from satisfied customers and trade publications such as The Horse Journal and John Lyons’ Perfect Horse and could see that Omega Horseshine was a remarkable product. But this sleeper product and omega-3 fatty acids from milled flax seed in general, was not reaching as wide an audience as we knew it could.

We began to increase Omega Horseshine’s visibility and the public’s awareness of flax seed’s amazing health and nutrition benefits by developing an online based distribution process called Omega Fields and then developed retail and wholesale dealer programs as well as national advertising programs. We are very proud to say that many of our great flax based horse and other animal supplements are now available in thousands of retail locations and leading catalogue outlets country wide.

The great story of the health benefits of flax seed continues to get better and better and our commitment to continued research and quality production does as well. We know there are many options in the market for our customers to choose from when it comes to providing for the health and nutrition of the horses and other animals they love. We are thankful for your business.

All the best,

Sean & Brenda Moriarty

Omega Fields remains committed to keeping "quality" as our number one focus, with the emphasis on natural, human-grade, non-GMO ingredients, no “filler” ingredients, shelf stability, nutritional value, and excellent Customer Service. It is because of our uncompromising insistence for quality that we choose to source our flaxseed from North America — not from less proven sources such as Eastern Europe or China.
 Although Omega Fields does not have an organic product line, we take great pride in being able to assure our customers that all Omega Fields’ products are natural, without added chemicals or preservatives, to provide good health and well-being for people and their animals. You can have confidence in the Premium, Human-Grade, Non-GMO, 99.9% Pure, Triple-Cleaned, Human-Grade, Stabilized, Ground, Fortified, Full-Fat, Whole-Food Flaxseed we use in all our formulas — as it is protected from rancidity or loss of nutritional value. It is the whole seed ground, so it contains 100% of the Omega 3 oils naturally present in the flaxseed.
Another naturally occurring phenomenon that especially protects flax seeds in the field from outside toxins is that they are formed and stored by the flax plant in a tight boll (see attached photo). This means flax seeds are much more protected than corn, oats, wheat, etc. — in which plants the seeds are 100% exposed to toxins.
