Field Trip Jerky is a fast growing brand formed by 3 friends out of a NYC apartment in 2010 who saw a need to transform meat snacks alternatives in a broken marketplace after tasting their first craft jerky on the ski slopes in Vermont. Field Trip saw the need for healthier protein-rich snacks that didn’t sacrifice quality and taste. Field Trip is a health lifestyle brand aimed at providing delicious and versatile snacks that complement a large variety of on-the-go consumers. Today, Field Trip offers a robust line of meat snacks as well as a new plant based protein chickpea butter line.
