Bacon is the Best!
That's why you’re here, right? Because you love bacon as much as we do, and anyone who says otherwise is either under some kind of voodoo-vegan spell, or just plain wrong. We have much to discuss…
We’re The Baconer, a Bay Area family-owned business specializing in one glorious product: BACON. Day in day out, we obsess over bacon with the singular goal of making the best bacon in the known Universe. Through years of tinkering and tasty R&D, we’ve perfected a collection of droolworthy bacon flavors, offered in extra thick butcher cuts that just melt in your mouth!
But how? Excellent question!
First, we start with the best pork -- that means responsibly sourced pork belly from family farms. No antibiotics, non-GMO vegetarian feed, no farrowing crates and free to roam!
Second, we cure our pork bellies, infusing them with fresh ingredients for our incredible flavors like Maple Sugar, Smoky Paprika & Spicy Jalapeño (getting hungry yet?).
Third, we smoke them low-and-slow over applewood, to drive the flavors deep into the slab.
The result? Bacon that's richly flavored, unfathomably tender and ready to ship to true-blue bacon lovers all over the United States. If that sounds like the best thing ever, you’ve come to the right place.

It was a classic tale. Boy meets girl. Romance, marriage, kids, a voracious obsession with food, an underground Brooklyn supper club, a blossoming love of cured meats, a random inspiration for a better way to make an age old recipe, A LOT of experimenting, unparalleled levels of deliciousness achieved, a bacon empire is born. Y’know, pretty typical.
