We're looking for healthy, environmentally-friendly, non-factory-farm-supporting dog food -- any brands or ideas?

My partner and I are thinking of adopting a dog sometime this year, and are concerned about what to feed him/her.
We are both vegetarians, but of course our dog will be eating a carnivorous diet. Our main objections to meat for ourselves are both environmental (carbon footprint, land use, pollution) and ethical (factory farms). So we're hoping for free-range organic meat (ideally chicken, not beef) to be the main ingredient, and of course we're willing to pay extra.
I'd be interested to hear opinions about any options out there -- we have a Whole Foods, Harris Teeter, farmer's market, and many specialty dog/pet stores nearby.
I'm not interested in making my own dog food (time is scarce!). I'd like only suggestions for readily available foods.
