Why Backcountry Food Company Was Started
Hello. I am Wayne Clark, the founder of Backcountry Food Company. I was introduced to the backcountry when I decided to try an archery elk hunt on public grounds in Colorado in 2018. Since that hunt, I have been a backcountry enthusiast. I am obsessed with spending as much time in the backcountry as possible.
One thing I have learned since I began exploring the backcountry is that food was a really big deal to me. I have to have clean, healthy food. I also need a variety of different foods.
Thus the issue arose, there is no single store I can go to that offers the variety of backcountry foods, hydration, spices, oils, snacks, and bars that I wanted or needed to fuel my backcountry excursions.
One day, while writing a paper on the backcountry for a class I was taking, I posted a question about backcountry food, and someone suggested they wanted to see a store they could shop at that offered all of the backcountry fuel they wanted, and the rest is history.
I wanted to create a place a person could go to get everything they needed to fuel their adventure, and thus Backcountry Food Company was born. Our store is going to provide the essentials needed to fuel your backcountry experiences!
