REVIEWS

Don't just take our word for it, check out some customer reviews:

Kristina S.

I’m a jerky snob. Very very very picky about my beef jerky. BUT this is my new favorite jerky. I’m obsessed. Perfect texture, great flavor. Sweet and spicy.

Jetta

Got this as part of my kickstarter pack for donating to getting the company off the ground and absolutely love it! I am a huge beef jerky fan of the peppered flavor already and this added a wonderful twist with the garlic.

Michael D.

I have always loved this flavor, spicy with a hint of sweetness. However, I think the texture is even better now, just a tad more moist. Perfect!

William

The GAIA Peppered Garlic Jerky is by far my favorite. I love this Jerky for when I'm hiking, biking, kayaking, snowshoeing or fly-fishing! Can't wait for the Stout flavored Jerky.

Mike

My favorite of the 3 types. Great flavor and a great balance of texture that wasn't too dry or brittle. Definitely will order again and eager for new flavors!

Celeste L.

I’m thrilled to find good quality CLEAN beef jerky that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I love that there isn’t much sugar used and the taste is awesome.

Bob F.

Island Arc is a family favorite. Moisture is just right and the spices have been perfected so that you savor all the flavors in every bite.

Ray

The stout gives your that deep rich flavor. This one is solid for when you’re fishing with no worries and no where else to be so you can sit and appreciate the flavors!

Jude

Best jerky on the market 10/10

Lewis D.

This was the first time I ever had the GAIA jerky. Man what a please surprise. I love the flavor profiles with each bite. The subtle heat from the pepper is a definite plus.

Kyle

The guava habanero is by far the best flavor available. I was one of the few lucky enough to try them through their Kickstarter campaign. Will be buying more in the future!

ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING

Natural Resources: The interior layer is made from 100% renewable plant-based resources like sugar cane. 

Waste Reduction: The new bags can help reduce waste as 60% of each bag can break down naturally in a relatively short period of time when left in the correct composting environment. 

Climate Change: The plant-based components that make up our new packaging can absorb greenhouse gases through natural plant respiration prior to use in packaging.

OUR SUSTAINABLE MISSION

CULTURALLY INSPIRED

Story: Stories capture the imagination and strengthen shared bonds. They are transferred through generations, standing the test of time.

Place: A sense of place is nothing less than profound. Places we hold dear become a part of who we are. Person and place, forever intertwined.

At Windward, we specialize in worldly flavors and stories. Our flavors began in the Hawaiian islands and quickly expanded around the globe, from mediterranean-inspired peppered jerky to sweet chili featuring stout beer. Take a tour of different flavors and galvanize your tastebuds.

Windward Jerky Launched

In January 2017, we launched the first version of our e-commerce website with our three original flavors - Alaka'i, Island Arc, and Gaia.

Alaka'i (Island Teriyaki) Beef Jerky

ALAKA'I: AN ORIGIN STORY

Founder's memories of the family recipe which sparked the flavor, which in turn inspired Windward's identity as a company and brand.

ISLAND ARC: AN ORIGIN STORY

Many years ago, on one of my family’s yearly trips back to the islands, I stumbled across a pulled pork sandwich with sweet Maui onions and topped with guava barbecue sauce. It was amazing.

GAIA: AN ORIGIN STORY

Gaia is our take on a traditional peppered jerky. Although the flavor profile is a variation of a classic, the concept of Gaia was born out of a desire to be different. 

CROSSROADS: AN ORIGIN STORY

Our new flavor needed to set us apart from other brands of beef jerky while setting the tone for future flavors. Learn how we developed Crossroads!
