Born & Raised on Mt. Hood
Feeling inspired by Oregon's connection to the land and his own passion for adventure, Jason Pastega put his favorite organic ingredients into a kitchen mixer and spread his first bars with a rolling pin in 2008. Six months later, Skout Backcountry was born.
Jason & Skout
Behind the name
Jason's yellow Labrador and fellow adventure-seeker, Skout, was part of the inspiration behind our name. The definition of "skout" ties directly to our purpose. We found it only fitting to incorporate this definition into the title of our company.
