What is “biltong”, you ask? Biltong is a traditional South African snack, something you’d find natives eating out of a paper bag while strolling the streets. It’s the South African version of beef jerky – all natural, air-dried, packed with protein and cut from the best meat. Whether it’s beef, ostrich, venison or elk, served by the slab or fresh sliced, it’s preservative free, dried right here in Atlanta and is easily enjoyed on its own or on top of some of your favorite snacks.
