Our History

The Bearded Butchers are a breed of men who wear many hats - skilled butchers, rugged outdoorsmen, devoted fathers, loyal sons, and steadfast brothers. But above all, they are passionate about crafting not only good food, but unforgettable dining experiences.

Enter their game-changing seasoning, a carefully crafted blend of spices that emerged from their frustration with the store-bought options riddled with undesirable additives like sugar, anti-caking agents, and MSG. Drawing on his expertise from years spent mixing spices in the family butcher shop, Seth set out to create a seasoning that would do justice to wild game and beyond.

With the first iteration of the seasoning hitting the shelves in 2012 under the moniker "Bearded Butcher Blend," the name paid homage to their father - the bearded patriarch who started the family's meat business, specializing in bison meat.

As the demand for their Original Blend skyrocketed, the Butchers expanded their offerings, drawing inspiration from their three sons, who all play active roles in the family business. They developed a Chipotle flavor in honor of their eldest son, Sean, a Cajun blend for middle son Seth, and a Hot seasoning for the youngest, Scott.

Their unique approach to butchering, wild game, family, and the great outdoors continues to shape their flavor offerings, marrying their rich heritage with their vision for the future. With the third generation of the Perkins family now involved, the Bearded Butchers look forward to sharing their passion and craftsmanship with you for years to come.
