Frequently Asked Questions

Is your product gluten free?

Funny you ask...our jerky is certified gluten-free with The Gluten-Free Manufacturing Program (GFMP), endorsed by the National Celiac Association.

Does your product contain soy?

Soy whaaaat? Our jerky is completely soy free. We use organic coconut aminos, a popular Paleo soy sauce substitute to give our Umami and Lemongrass Sichuan their amazing unique flavor.

Does the jerky need to be refrigerated?

Since there are no artificial preservatives it is best to refrigerate our product if you don’t eat it in one sitting...but we won’t judge if you do.

What preserves the jerky if it doesn't have preservatives?

Natural sugars and salts help cure the meat, we then smoke it with Cherry Wood to naturally preserve it. (The natural smoke also happens to add tons of flavor.) Since we don't use additives to preserve our product, please keep refrigerated after opening.

Where is your product made?

All of our jerky is made locally in the Heartland of America.

Is your product Organic?

All of our marinades are 100% Organic, and blended with 100% Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished non GMO beef. Next question.

What does Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished mean?

Most meat is “Grass-Fed” but it’s “Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished” meat that’s special. Grass-Finished refers to what cattle are fed in the last period of their lives. Most cattle are fed grain toward the end to help them put on weight. However, when they are grass finished, they are kept on the pasture, which results in higher quality (and tastier) meat.

Where does your meat come from?

Since all of our beef is Grass-Fed and Finished, we have to source it from an environment where the grass is healthy and nutrient-rich year-round. This led us all the way to the milder climates of New Zealand where nutrient-rich grasses like alfalfa, clover, Flinders grass, Mitchell grass and rye grass grow all year. We source all of our meat from family farms in New Zealand, that pride themselves on being naturally pastured raised.

Does your meat have added Hormones or Antibiotics?

Since our cattle is from New Zealand where the climate is ideal all year round, cattle are raised in great conditions. They are healthy, happy, and therefore don’t require any antibiotics or hormones. Fun fact: Did you know GMOs were banned in New Zealand?

What is the Gluten Free Food program?

We are a proud certified Gluten-Free member of Gluten-Free Manufacturing program (GFMP), recognized by The National Celiac Association.

They also engage in other activities related to educating the public about celiac disease/non-celiac gluten sensitivities and improving the quality of life of those diagnosed with the disease.
