We’ve been working at this for a while. It all started around 2010, when co-founders Kyle and Brooks got tired of choking down the cardboard that passed for energy bars, and decided to make a healthy, no-nonsense snack that both tasted good AND powered their various adventures.
Unlike those Companies Who Shall Not Be Named that smash together ingredients and squeeze them out of a tube into a lifeless lump, each of our bars has a unique flavor, taste, and texture with ingredients that are carefully selected, mixed, and baked—hence the word “Bakes” in our name.
We’ve also dialed in our mission of positively impacting our home state of New Mexico with jobs that pay a living wage, and looking carefully at our supply chain and what it means well beyond the region. It’s the right thing to do and it’s a crucial part of our DNA.
While it all started with adventure (loyal customers will remember the days of “Taos Mountain Energy Bars”), we’ve grown with the help of an amazing community and built long-lasting relationships along the way.
