At Baja Jerky, we’re all about living life to the fullest. And for us, that means being active and enjoying the great outdoors. That’s why we’ve partnered up with a variety of athletes across the country – to inspire anyone and everyone we can to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
Beef jerky has traditionally been the go-to snack for hiking and camping, but that’s where it historically stopped. Surfing? No way. Off-road racing? Forget about it! But our team at Baja Jerky is full of trail blazers, and we’re more than happy to challenge the status quo. With our addition to the industry, beef jerky was no longer limited to strictly mountain-oriented sends. We officially made it cool to eat beef jerky wherever you are – no matter what you’re doing.
Hailing from San Diego, our first focus was sports popular in Southern California. We got in touch with our community and found some stars in the surf world. They in turn introduced us to tons of new people and opened our eyes to their surf-studded lifestyle. And that ultimately turned us onto even more activities like mountain biking, dirt biking, off-road racing, and even rodeo.
Our roster, which spans across a variety of sports, shows just how versatile our product is. Athletes from all walks of life who are performing on levels that demand their body to move in all sorts of ways find commonality through our snack. Our beef jerky is reliable, delicious and good for you. With the lowest sodium levels on the market and a hefty load of protein in each serving, it’s no wonder Baja Jerky is quickly becoming the favorites of athletes all over the country.
There’s no hiding that what you eat directly correlates to how you feel. And if we want to feel good, we need to eat good! That’s why we take such precision and care in selecting the ingredients that will ultimately craft our beef jerky. It starts from the bottom up – from what our cows eat to the spices that bring our flavors to life. Every single ingredient matters, and we’ve got the best of the best to fuel your adventures.
Now, here we are, two years later and we’ve got an unparalleled roster of athletes and partners. Once again, we strive to live our best lives. We eat good so we can feel so we can perform good – it’s that simple. And we hope that our values and our partners help you to do the same.
