Our recipe and process was first developed by Sue Boyd in 1958 and was passed on to her sons. Jae Boyd is now the CEO of Boyd Specialties, and he regularly receives help and advice from Sue, who still manages our offices. Three generations of Boyds currently work at our plant, dedicated to preserving the quality and taste of the original recipe. This family commitment guarantees that we stand behind our product.
Jerky made by Boyd Specialties is prepared from California beef that is raised with no hormones. We take great pride in knowing that all of the ingredients that go into our jerky are locally made, high quality products from companies who share our commitment to excellence. The Boyd family has lived in the Heartland of Southern California for more than half a century and our dedication to the community and our neighbors is a driving force for Boyd Specialties.
When we started Boyd Specialties it was only family members working in our plant. Jae and his brother Robert, along with their mother, Sue were the only employees for the first few months. Soon we enlisted the help of Jae’s daughter Jade and other family members who were passionate about seeing Boyd Specialties Jerky brought to the masses. Now, years later, the Boyd family still works in all aspects of our facility. In addition to family members, we currently work closely with San Bernardino County Workforce Development Organization to help bring jobs to our community.
