Minnesota-based Jack Link’s Protein Snacks has acquired the meat snacks division of Grass Run Farms—a collaboration of family farms in America dedicated to producing 100 percent grass-fed beef snacks and fresh meat products.

“The protein snack category continues to grow and it’s our mission at Jack Link’s to offer a great-tasting snack for every kind of consumer,” says Troy Link, president and CEO of Jack Link’s. “Grass Run Farms started just like Jack Link’s—a Midwestern family with a passion for high-quality, great tasting beef. Nearly 30 years later, my family of team members still has that passion and we’re excited to welcome Grass Run Farms to the Jack Link’s family.”

Grass Run Farms farmers and ranchers are dedicated to sustainable and responsible practices that produce lean and wholesome beef. Cattle are never given antibiotics or added growth hormones, and receive a 100 percent grass-fed diet.

Under Jack Link’s Protein Snacks, Grass Run Farm product offerings will include three flavors of beef jerky, three flavors of beef sticks, three flavors of beef bites and summer sausage.
