Unable to find bacon that met his high standards for freshness and ingredients, Chef Tony Baker founded his own brand in 2011. Baker's Bacon began with a partnership between long time smoke master and bacon expert Steve Sacks at Prime Smoked Meats in Oakland, California. Baker and Sacks worked together for over a year experimenting with cures until they settled on the recipe that is still in use today. The goal was and is to make real bacon - Bacon The Way It's Supposed To Be! We source heritage breed pork, humanely raised without crates and fed a 100% vegetarian diet. Previously sold only to high-end restaurants, our artisan products are now available to you to buy online or from our Company Store in Marina, CA and work magic in your own kitchen.
