Our Jerky is
Where does our beef come from?
From a local ranch, of course! Shoestring Cattle Company has been a family-run ranch since 1863. They are located in Cotapaxi, Colorado on a street called Cowboy Way (can you believe that?). They pride themselves in continuing a family-operated tradition and apply holistic management principles and natural stockmanship. Clean N Jerky is proud that our jerky comes from such an excellent source.
Just look at this beautiful ranch!
What is a Paleo diet? Paleo is the diet of our ancestors – meat, vegetables, fruit, seeds and nuts. More than that, it is food that has not been processed or filled with nitrates, pesticides and antibiotics.
When I was younger, living in the country with my parents, nutrition was not a concern. We ate elk or deer, potatoes and veggies for dinner every evening. As my life moved on, so did my diet. I worked in the restaurant industry, and processed food became my staple. I gained weight and lost energy.
Eventually, I decided to tackle my weight and fatigue and CrossFit became my world. It took a year, but the weight began to come off. When it did, my energy and joy for life returned.
Then one day, I felt like something just wasn’t right. I went in for a checkup, and was diagnosed with cancer. I realized I needed more than exercise to care for my body. Nutrition was a major player in my victory over cancer. And in the CrossFit world, nutrition means Paleo.
I am, and have always been, a carnivore. So when an old friend of the family asked me to sell his grass-fed, grass-finished beef, I jumped at the chance. I had access to ample amounts of ground beef, and wanted an effective way to present it to people. A trainer with whom I worked suggested I make jerky from ground beef. As an athlete, a mom, and someone always on the go, jerky was the best possible fit for my needs.
My energy and thoughts are directed toward helping others understand the health benefits of grass-fed, grass-finished beef. Our beef starts and finishes on Shoestring Cattle Company, a ranch in the foothills of the Sangre De Cristo mountain range in Colorado. I feel so fortunate to have found a way of life that involves better nutrition, and to have the opportunity to share that with others.
