Country Archer makes healthy food for people who care enough to get things done — and they’ve been doing it for nearly forty years. Although their jerky has been around since 1977, it’s been a bit of a hidden gem, sold mostly in roadside stands. Their 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.
