Avoid another Father's Day Fiasco - get personal this year!

Claire Patrick

Was last year's Father's Day a bust? Whether you just waited too late, got dad another dreaded necktie - or worse yet - NOTHING, you should definitely make it up to him this time around. Forget the socks and cufflinks and find something befitting dad's uniqueness - just peruse our handy dandy Father's Day gift guide! 

Does dad love the outdoors? Grandpa loves to golf? Husband loves to hunt? We've got you covered. 

For the Golfer:

He's looked forward to retirement for 18 reasons. When gramps hits the green, he shouldn't have to go empty handed. We've heard a little protein between holes can take that bogey to a birdie - so help the old man out.  Our Pacific Mountain Farms jerky sticks will fit perfectly in his golf bag. 

For the Cyclist:

Does your husband do double time on his bike - riding to work daily to save money & the environment?  Has he been spending his evenings teaching junior how to ride without training wheels?  Sounds like he deserves the reward for cyclist - and maybe even dad of the year. Fuel his ride this Father's Day with some Buffalo Bob's exotic jerky to keep him pedaling. 

For the Hunter:

This one's pretty self explanatory. We've got two words for you: Ammo Cans. You can thank us later. 

For the Grillmaster:

grill-sausage
Is there no where else your pops would rather be than stoking the coals or the propane on a summer weekend? By all means, this Father's Day, give the man something worth grilling! We've got Reindeer, Caribou, Boar, Elk & Venison sausages to tantalize his tastebuds and win him over. 

For the Adventurer:

Dynasty Club Fathers Day Gift Subscription

Maybe the special man in your life doesn't want to be beholden to hobbies. Or perhaps he has too many to count. Aren't all men a little wild at heart? The adventurous guy who loves to try new things absolutely NEEDS to be a part of our Dynasty Club. For a truly special Father's Day, nothing else will do for the dad who has it all and does it all. Whether you Join the Dynasty for him for a month, 3 months, or a year, he'll remember this Father's Day forever. 

We've got high hopes that this year will be the best Father's Day across the board...and we think our jerky's a good way to make that happen!

New Year's Resolutions made easier with Jerky!

New Year's Resolutions made easier with Jerky!

Claire Patrick

It's that time of year again...when we make a list of goals we're beholden to for the next 365 days. Some years we go easy on ourselves, and sometimes it's a real challenge. This year, our resolution is to make YOUR goals easier to meet - with - you guessed it - JERKY.  You may be wondering how jerky can possibly relate to your 2018 resolutions. We think you'l be pleasantly surprised. 

Resolution #1: Take your vitamins.

vitamins

Sometimes pills can be hard to swallow. So chew on this instead: Jerky is chock full of vitamins! Beef Jerky is an excellent source for minerals like iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and zinc! Low on B-12? Jerky's got you covered there as well - plus with several other B vitamins!  Has your doc told you to increase your Omega 3 intake? Our Alaskan Salmon Jerky is a great source of Omega 3s! So - skip the pills and eat some meat. You earned it. 

Resolution #2: Hit the gym. 

Gym Workout
If you're gonna' work out - you're gonna' need protein.  Whether you've jumped on the Crossfit bandwagon and want to go Paleo, or just want to make sure your muscles are getting the stuff they need to repair, Jerky's got your back. Your average post-workout snack should have anywhere from 10-20 grams of protein - which means you just need to eat 2-3 pieces of our very own old fashioned jerky to do the trick.  Filling your gym bag with our gourmet jerky is a great way to stay motivated - what better reward for a workout? 

Resolution #3: Be more romantic. 

Exotic Meat Bouquet

We've got three little words for you that will go a LONG way: Exotic Meat Bouquet. Nothing says "I love you" quite like jerky, and we're pretty sure this gift (and one of our newest offerings) would turn your favorite guy into putty in your hands. Is your #1 relationship goal this year to add a little sizzle? Spice things up with our Hot and Spicy gift bundle! We promise, you won't regret it. 

Resolution #4: Try something new. 

Try Something New

You may be one of those folks who was more than ready to shrug off 2017 and dive right in with a different approach to 2018. One good way to get out of a rut is always to try something new. And boy - do we have options! Never tasted snake or ostrich jerky? This is your year! When it comes to new and unique flavors to tantalize your tastebuds, our Jerky runs the gamut. 

There you have it. You've got no excuses. This year's gonna' be the year you tackle all your resolutions - cross them off your list. We've got your back. Here's to 2018!

Get that beach body with beef jerky!

Get that beach body with beef jerky!

Claire Patrick

If you’re counting down the calendar days ‘til summer, we’ve got about 8 weeks left - technically. But we all know summer begins long before the solstice. And with pool parties, lake outings and beach vacations on the horizon, being ready for swimsuit season has surely crossed your mind, if not taken priority. According to a survey by Planet Fitness, 33% of Americans would rather go to the dentist than don a swimsuit.

Swimsuit

Regardless of whether you’re only mildly panicked or having a full blown freakout, we’ve got your back. There’s no need to do a drastic cleanse or a trendy diet. Just change the way you’re snacking!

Jerky is both high in protein and low in calories - which means it will keep you full for longer. It also won’t raise your insulin levels—a hormone that signals your body to store fat. Jerky makes a great snack between meals, especially if you’re trying to lose weight.

Does dreaming of the beach have you spending more time in the gym? A study published in The FASEB Journal showed that doubling your protein intake along with exercise may be the key to losing fat pounds without dropping muscle mass. And an added bonus? Our jerky sticks and snack packs are just the right size to toss in your gym bag.

Consider yourself a pescatarian? Not a problem - we’ve got several fish jerky options to tide you over ‘til the tide rolls in. Road tripping to the ocean? Why stop for fast food burgers when you’ve got protein in your purse, sans all the grease. And honestly, when you’re on the beach with your toes in the sand and jerky in your hand, you’ll be content whether or not you hit your goal weight. But as long as there’s still time and you’re still trying to shed those pounds, we’ve got your snacking regimen covered.
