Barebones is what feeds you. Literally... Figuratively...


Barebones has a history steeped in philanthropic work and continues to lift people out of poverty by providing essential skills, education and tools.

The first product created by the Barebones team was a state-of-the-art emergency shelter, and it continues to be one of the key assets they provide to disadvantaged communities and disaster recovery efforts. disaster. Through these Barebones shelters, people in countries around the world are actively receiving the protection they desperately need.

Barebones has evolved from its philanthropic roots, but continues its humanitarian efforts and the "Do Good" philosophy on which it was founded.

"When you do good with your heart, the magic happens, and that goodness comes right back."

Our Vision

Robert Workman has spent his career finding ways to give back: from the beginnings of his first philanthropic venture, Tifie, a nonprofit that helped marginalized people meet their basic needs, to Goal Zero, a company that started as a way to provide solar power to groups in Congo (and now many more around the world).

In recent years, Robert has returned to his agricultural roots creating Barebones and the products that help connect people to food, nature and the primal force of fire. He has become more in tune with Mother Nature and finds joy in helping others do the same.

Each year, employees have one week to volunteer for an organization of their choice.

Our Culture

Giving back is a key part of our corporate culture and is at the heart of what we do. Each year, employees have one week of time to volunteer for a non-profit organization of their choice. They volunteer locally at Roots Charter High School in Utah.

Barebones believes in the ability of communities to thrive, both locally and internationally, when resources are available. This abundance mindset is the “why” that underpins the generous donation of time, energy, knowledge and products to benefit communities near and far.
