We've had the opportunity to share the story of Gastro Gnome with a handful of fantastic publications this Summer. We're thrilled folks have noticed just how different our approach to backcountry food is and honored to share a few words about the experience. Dive into the articles below and keep your eyes peeled- Shannon (Gnome Owner) and Matthew (Gnome Production & Safety Manager) will be hopping on The Average Conservationist in just a few weeks to discuss what conservation looks like from inside the walls of Gastro Gnome.
The Edible publications have poised themselves as beacons to find folks doing right by the local food community. It was a really proud moment for this crew to have our backpacking meals land on the pages of such a respected journal in our home town. We couldn't love the intro more! "At the confluence of fine dining and backcountry innovation, you will Shannon Waters and her backcountry cuisine." Read the full scoop here.
The "Made in Montana" certification is one Gastro Gnome takes an incredible amount of pride in. To be certified, you must actually create the product in Montana state lines, which for other backpacking meal brands co-packing and outsourcing, it makes this certification impossible. For Gastro Gnome, building a facility in Bozeman was a choice based on the necessity of maintaining our values. To read more, check out the story, written by Shannon herself, here.
Known for guiding Bozeman's outdoor community to the best ski spots, sweetest summer alpine fishing holes, and providing guidance for truly anything in our mountain town, Outside Bozeman reviewed our flagship flavor and gave it their stamp of super approval. Read more here.

We hope you never get sick of us telling you, because we'll never stop- We are so grateful for your support. Thank you. We could not be fueling so many epic adventures without our community standing behind us and cheering us on. We are committed to changing what's possible for flavor in the backcountry and want to thank you for believing in Gastro Gnome to take on this battle. We have so much more in store including new flavors around the corner, and a big ol' huge gigantic announcement we can't wait to share. So, stick around y'all. It's about to get wild.
See ya out there!
