Thanks for checking out my project. Here's some of what I will be sending you. Keep reading for more pictures!

Deliciousness.
Deliciousness.

I'm Dave and I want to get my Meat & Nuts in your mouth!

I've spent my life in the New York City restaurant business and I have always had a passion for doing something myself.

I always bought Beef Jerky and flavored Nuts and was usually disappointed in the quality and very often felt overcharged. I believe many of you have felt the same way. 

I moved to Napa Valley, California to get access to the country's best Meat & Nuts and decided to do it better - myself. 

So here we are. I am sourcing Grass Fed - Grain Finished Beef from northern California & southern Oregon. I work with a 4 generation old company who processes my recipes in a real smoke house. All natural ingredients + unique flavors (Root Beer Habanero, yeah!) = the highest quality product out there. 

All my nuts are from California and hand selected for both flavor and texture. Then the magic happens again with all natural ingredients and unique flavor combinations. I will be working on more savory and sweet flavors in the near future. 

Over the last year I have been developing the recipes. Through friends, family and social media I have sent out hundreds of samples and taken all the feedback very seriously. I have gotten so much amazing and positive feedback that I believe, almost everyone (can't please them all) will agree, that this is a seriously kick-ass set of Meat & Nuts.  

Until now, I have been a pain in the butt for my smoke house as they are only doing 10 pound runs for me. I am very low on their totem pole because all their equipment is set up for large quantities. Here is where you come in. 

To go into full scale production I need to do larger runs of Meat & Nuts. Doing over 50 pounds at a time will not only get my costs down but it will greatly improve the quality and consistency of all the products. 

All the money raised will be used to increase production. Any funds in excess of our goal will be used to purchase better, more appealing packaging (bags & labels). 

* ACTIVATED!!!! STRETCH GOAL $10,000.00 - All backers of $8.00 or higher will get...samples of what I'm working on next. Garlic Moist Beef Jerky has been voted in!

STRETCH GOAL # 2 $15,000 - Cinnamon Almond Brittle Samples and another tasty treat. 

Please consider backing, buying holiday gifts, sharing this project with others or just go shout from the rooftops "I want Dave's Meat & Nuts". 

Feel free to ask me anything and connect on social media.

Risks and challenges

When the funding is successful there will be very little risk involved. As long as an act of nature doesn't take out my production facility I will be able to deliver the rewards in time for the holidays. If an unforeseen tragedy occurred I would find another place to work and bring my recipes there. This would cause a substantial delay.

I put my name on the package because I stake my reputation on the quality and service I plan on delivering to all of you.
