2022 Clark Company Gift Guide
2022 Clark Company Gift Guide
This year we thought it would be fun to do a Clark Company Gift Guide... so we polled the Clark Family, and following is a list of their responses:
DAY 1: Slim Sadies Beef Jerky
Pete's sister Nina recommended her Daughter-In-Law's business: Slim Sadie’s Beef Jerky! If the Mother-In-Law says its good--it must be!
Slim Sadies is a veteran-owned, local business and their jerky makes a perfect stocking stuffer or holiday road-trip snack!

DAY 2: HorseTrap Leather
Next up on the Clark Company Gift Guide is a suggestion from Pete's phenomenal wife, Elena. She recommends the beautiful leather work of HorseTrap Leather.
Visit her IG page for a sampling of the handiwork of craftswoman Johanna Work. Let her know we sent you!
Day 3: Carpet One / Rocking Chair
Day 3 of the Clark Company Gift Guide is the first of Pete's suggestions: A rocking chair! Can you think of a more relaxing way to spend the holidays or to take a siesta?
Our suggestion is one of the choices from our local Paso Robles Carpet One! If you're looking for any other pieces of furniture (or to get new flooring), call Nathan Sanchez at 805-635-4049 or visit their website: https://www.carpetone.com/locations/california/paso-robles
Day 4: Zaca Coffee
Today brings a gift idea from Pete' Sister-in-Law, Gigi. Her first suggestion is Zaca Coffee.
Roasted among the native oak trees and wildlife in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, Zaca Coffee was founded by an old Clark Family friend, Dennis Patrick (aka The Denny Llama).
Also a fellow Rancher and trail ride compadre, Dennis clerked for Pete's dad in the '70s and worked with him in the White House in the '80s.
If you have a coffee-lover on your list, give them a try and tell them we referred you! https://zacacoffee.com/
Day 5: Paso Almond Brittle
Presenting another idea from Gigi: Paso Almond Brittle! A tour of their website also revealed something called Almond Brittle Butter. We can't wait to try it!
Their delicious products are sold at stores all across the nation. Here are a few spots to get them in California:
- Chumash Casino Resort
- Avila Valley Barn
- River Oaks Hot Springs Spa
- We Olive
Visit their website to find all of their treats and find the best way to purchase: https://www.pasoalmonds.com/pages/2022-holiday-information
DAY 6: Brown Butter Cookie Company
Day 6 brings another sweet treat, suggested by Pete's sister, Nina: Brown Butter Cookie Company!
These unique cookies "are the perfect combination of salty and sweet making for a deliciously comforting treat"! They even have a cookie club!

DAY 7: J&R Natural MEats
The final day of the Clark Company Gift Guide brings another suggestion from Pete: Meat!
We recommend going to a local butcher. If you're in SLO County, try J&R Natural Meats which offers locally grown, pasture-raised and hand-crafted meats! https://www.jrmeats.com/
