As Gourmet As Jerky Gets
At Country Archer, we make healthy food for people who care enough to get things done — and we’ve been doing it for nearly forty years. Although our jerky has been around since 1977, it’s been a bit of a hidden gem, sold mostly in roadside stands. Our current owners, Eugene and Susan Kang, discovered it on a road trip to the Grand Canyon and enjoyed it so much, they decided to track down the original owner. A butcher by trade and artisan by craft, Celestino Mirarchi was definitely a doer. In fact, he was so busy making jerky, he couldn’t devote much time to selling it. The trio became business partners and made it their mission to share the tasty secret with the rest of the world.
Today, Country Archer’s line of healthy jerky and meat snacks are sold nationwide. And although the company has grown, we’re still paying homage to Mirarchi’s decades-old tradition by making our snacks in small batches at our California facility using healthful ingredients and protein options like grass-fed beef, antibiotic-free turkey, and pork. Whether you reach for them in your pantry, backpack, desk or lunchbox, we hope Country Archer products make it easier for you to eat healthfully, while doing the things you love.
