HOW WE MAKE THE BEST JERKY
Show Me The Beef
To make the best jerky we start with the best beef. Our mission is to use only the best Carolina grass- fed beef. 100% grass-fed, grass finished livestock. Environmentally sound, sustainably raised, high quality, nutritious beef. Livestock that is humanely maintained on a grass-based system free of pesticides, hormones and GMOs. We have chosen to work with family owned Carolina based farms dedicated too and sharing this mission.
The Secret Is In The Sauce
The second most important part of making the best jerky are the marinades and seasonings. The secret really is in the sauce. Our secret is not really a secret at all… Just use really good, really well made fresh ingredients. By seeking out local ingredients from passionate farmers, chefs and artisans we have formed strategic partnerships with other businesses who proudly want their natural and nutritious products and ingredients in our marinades.
We produce our jerky locally. Our Carolina facilities are well-run USDA monitored and dedicated to our mission of handcrafted jerky. Select cuts of whole muscle meat beef, hand cut, marinated and cooked in small batches. The government is involved when you make jerky so that should let you know that if it could be simple… it won’t be. We won’t bore you with all of the details that go into making and packaging jerky but are dedication to traditional, old fashioned jerky production has led us to a “keep it local, keep it simple” approach. Our jerky is made fresh weekly and goes from “pasture to pouch”. The jerky is made by hand with local beef featuring local seasonings and literally goes from the farm to you. It does not get any fresher than that.
Keeping It Real (Local)
We could source the beef, the ingredients or the production from anywhere. And it would probably cost less. Some do. We don’t. By keeping Greenville Jerky Company local we not only keep our mission real but our jerky real… Our passion and dedication is shared in our local partnerships and that translates into the best beef jerky. If we want our customers to buy local… shouldn’t we?
