Story and Place: two things that affect one another, two things that build one another. Everyone, and everything, has a story. Everyone, and everything, has place. The Windward story begins in Hawai’i. When I was young my grandparents, both from the islands, inspired my love for food. From them I learned to cook. From them I learned my culture and place. Windward is built on this foundation. We created our jerky to share our story and place with you. We value the ability to sit down, wherever we are, and appreciate our company, our environment, and the stories we tell one another. To capture a moment in time, and cherish that memory. To share food, drink, and company. Windward is our story.

Story. Place. Quality.

As our story expands, we hope you join us and let the Windward family save you generic, over-processed jerky. Growing up, I was always told to know where my food came from. To know, understand, and be thankful of the process that food undergoes. At Windward we hold to this very philosophy. Our ingredients are of the highest quality. No nonsense, made with 100% grass-fed beef. Whoever you are, wherever you come from, we hope you make us a part of your story. Take us to the places that make your story flow, and we'll galvanize you to venture into the wind.

"I absolutely love this jerky! Out of the three flavors so far, this is my favorite! I love the sweet t spicy ratio. Can't wait to see what else they make!"

"I usually only like spicy beef jerky or regular style.... but I was really blown away by the taste of the Gaia. It's simply a perfect balance of different tastes and textures. The pepper and garlic are strong, but not overpowering. Will be buying more, super bomb."
