Country Archer Jerky Co.: Gourmet Beef Jerky

What’s not in Country Archer products is equally important as what is.  Here, we honor the intelligence of mother nature by offering deliciously healthy, gourmet meat snacks, handcrafted using responsibly sourced real food ingredients. More meat. Less bull. No junk. That’s our winning recipe!

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.

 

Certified Products:

Original Beef Stick

Indigenous. Primary. One-of-a-kind. There are lots of ways to say “original.” Believe us—we brainstormed. But somehow, “First Beef Sticks” and “Unconventional Beef Sticks” didn’t roll off the tongue. And honestly, there’s no better way to describe the authentic flavor of 100% grass-fed beef that goes into all of our beef sticks. So, we went with “Original Beef Sticks.” Because in beef as in life, sometimes less is more.

Jalapeño Beef Stick

Have you ever wondered, “How could Country Archer possibly enhance the deliciousness of their 100% grass-fed beef snacks?” Simple: we added spicy, tangy jalapeños! Try one of our Jalapeño Beef Sticks today!

Rosemary Turkey Stick

Despite modern advances in turkey, one problem continues to elude experts: portability. Think about it. A turkey can weigh, like, 20 pounds. But now, with the advent of the Rosemary Turkey Stick, we’ve cracked the code in the hand-held poultry space. The future is now, people. Enjoy the antibiotic-free turkey and fresh rosemary flavor in our Rosemary Turkey Stick today!

Chorizo Beef with Pork Stick

You don’t have to speak Spanish or Portuguese to know your chorizo. Because let’s face it—there are really no words to describe the rich, smoky complexity of grass-fed beef, antibiotic-free pork, and exotic spices. And besides, it’s impolite to talk with your mouth full. So relax, amigas and amigos—your native tongue is the only one you’ll need.

Hatch Chile Turkey Stick

Things are better with sticks. Imagine pole-vaulting without the pole—it’s not happening. Yes, from baseball and drumming to knitting and jousting, sticks help do-ers do stuff better. Savor the cage-free turkey goodness and the Hatch Chile heat in our Hatch Chile Turkey Sticks.

Pineapple Pork Stick

If you’ve ever ordered “Hawaiian pizza” you know that pork and pineapple isn’t for everybody. Or… is it? Our Pineapple Pork Sticks deliciously combine sweet pineapple and antibiotic-free pork for a satisfying protein-filled snack everyone can enjoy. Try one now and see for yourself!

Maple with Uncured Bacon Pork Stick

You may be thinking, “Bacon and pork? Isn’t that, like, the same thing?” Let us assure you—it’s not. For starters, our tender, antibiotic-free pork is perfectly seasoned to enhance its unique pork… ness. And the uncured bacon? Dude, it’s freakin’ bacon, yo! With a hint of maple sweetness! Try one of our Maple with Uncured Bacon Pork Sticks and taste the difference for yourself.

Original Beef Jerky

We get a lot of emails from people saying that our jerky is good. A little “too good,” if you ask them. In fact, they want to know what we’re doing to trick it up. Well, rest assured there’s nothing tricky or sneaky or otherwise shady going on. Country Archer jerky is handcrafted from mostly organic, real food ingredients. It’s made in small batches using only the finest USDA inspected 100% grass-fed beef. Bottom line: what you see on the label is what’s inside the package. Any more questions? Send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!

Hickory Smoke Turkey Jerky

Let’s talk turkey. And jerky. Because the truth is, we were doing “artisanal,” “small-batch,” and “hand-crafted” before it was cool. Our hickory smoked turkey jerky is prepared the way it was always intended — smoked to perfection with slices of slow marinated turkey breast and no BS. Plus, it’s conveniently packaged in an artisanal re-sealable pouch — perfect for your gym bag, glove box, shower…or wherever you store your meat snacks.

About Country Archer Jerky Co

Our fearless leader never has a problem keeping busy. Ironically, this avid outdoorsmen can be found most often in the test kitchen dreaming up new flavors, products and who knows what else. A recent convert to CrossFit, Eugene's love-hate relationship with burpees is ever evolving. Foodie, meat monger, serial entrepreneur... he wears many hats.

 

Susan hates waste whether that be food, money, or time. This translates to her hobbies. As an avid gardener, she gives high praise to her compost bin. In her eyes, why waste precious resources when they could be turned into black gold!


Chapter One: Charlie Does Jerky

In 1977, a butcher and artisan named Celestino “Charlie” Mirarchi started making jerky. Charlie was definitely a doer. In fact, he was so busy making jerky that he couldn’t devote much time to selling it. So, his snacks remained a hidden gem—until Eugene and Susan Kang discovered it at a roadside stand on a trip to the Grand Canyon. They loved the jerky so much they decided to track down the maker. Soon, the trio went into business together—with a mission to share their meaty secret with the world.

 

Chapter Two: Doing Things the Right Way

Slowly but surely, more and more people found Country Archer jerky, and our snacks found their way into specialty grocers and other outlets. Fans started asking for variety, and so we channeled our passion into new recipes. And while we could have taken shortcuts, we chose to go with what we know. True to Charlie’s tradition, we still craft each batch with grass-fed beef, cage-free turkey, and quality pork.

 

Chapter Three: Let's Do This

Today, we’re putting on our big-kid pants and taking our not-so-secret story nationwide. There’s still just one kitchen, although it’s quite a bit bigger now. And for doers who want to do more—and do it well—there are lots more ways to enjoy Country Archer meat snacks, and lots more places to find them. Heck, you can even order a box of bars, sticks, or jerky packs right here online. We think Charlie would be proud.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
