Changing one- mind at a time - APBT style

|I drove out to a feed store today and saw they had a food called Whole Earth Farms. The protein level is 28% and they don't have anything added besides egg that would boost the protein level. It is made by one of the better dog food companies, can't remember which one off the top of my head. It appears to be a pretty good food, they had a trial sized back for only fifty cents per pound and the regular price for larger sizes is only one dollar per pound which is about the same I see Diamond Naturals going for and it is a much better product so far as I can tell. It does have four sources of grain in the first eight ingredients which is a concern, but it also appears to have a good deal of meat in it, a good range of probiotics and amino acid complexes as well. I'm thinking of adding it in a rotation. Daddy has done really well on Natural Balance Ultra Premium but this looks to have more meat content so I'm thinking of switching to this in a rotation instead of the Natural Balance (it's also a better price than Natural Balance for seemingly a better product, and I can support a non-chain business that doesn't sell puppy/kitten/pet mill animals by buying from there).
I can't find the ingredients or food listed on Google, this is the first time I've seen or heard of it, and it's not even up on the Dog Food Analysis site so I'm assuming it's fairly new. Here are the ingredients and guaranteed analysis of the food, had to type it all out by hand.
