Rugged Meats was started by a firefighter/nurse, husband/wife team. As any first responder knows, meal times are anything but consistent and many times are non-existent! We always tried to keep a healthy snack with us to keep our energy up when the demands of our jobs prevented a regular meal. Everything we found was either healthy but not shelf stable, or it tasted good but was terribly unhealthy. We set out to fix this problem and Rugged Meats was born!
When we aren’t on duty, we love the outdoors and being active together as a family. We homeschool our two children, which gives us a lot of family time together. We love to hunt, fish, hike, swim or just play. But we also love to eat (reasonably) healthy.
The desire to have a healthy -but great tasting- snack to take on our adventures is what started Rugged Meats. It’s the perfect snack to throw in our bag(or fire engine) to Power Our Pursuit, no matter what that is!
Don't tell our competition, but here’s our secret. When you start with only the best quality ingredients, like 100% grass-fed beef from small American family farms, pasture raised pork, free-range turkey and wild game meat, you don't need to add lots of chemicals to make it taste better. Amazing meat + simple spices creates an incredible experience that you will enjoy and feel good about eating!
