Hey! My name is Houston, and my brother Jacob (on the left) and I are the founders of Bearded Jerky. From the day I was born, I can remember my father BBQing and Smoking all types of meats so naturally, my brother and I picked up on the skill. Bearded Jerky all started on a random day in July 2017 when Jacob just finished up a fresh batch of jerky. We had a few friends over who were all complementing the batch he just made and I remember when I went to try it and took that first bite, I said “This sh*t is bomb, we can sell this!” while at first It was a slight joke, everyone started agreeing and at that moment I knew we had something! At the time all I could think about was how cool it would be to be in business with my little brother! So that same day we hyped each other up, ended up buying a commercial grade dehydrator and meat slicer, and went to work brainstorming on how we were going to actually make this happen. From the beginning, we both agreed and set a goal that our company would make a positive impact on those less fortunate. This is when we came up with our giveback program.
In the past two years, there has been a big change in how we are making a positive impact on those less fortunate. When we first started out, we would donate one bag to someone in need for every ten bags bought. Quickly we began to realize not every customer was able to directly help someone in need. This is why we made the big change to what we call our new One For One Model. This new development of our giveback program has brought extreme value to our customers because they can now know that every item bought from us, will directly benefit someone in need.
Without your help, our mission to donate one million bags would be impossible. We know how important you are to our mission, so not only will we provide you with the world’s highest quality jerky, but we will always treat you like family and maintain value for many years to come!
