The Gapp family in Sturgis, South Dakota, created Sturgis Beef Jerky around 1964-where the Sturgis Public library is now. Would buy beef rounds to trim and slice on a slicer and cut by hand with a knife. Many of the customers and school kids who stopped by our store helped hone the recipe, until the perfect blend of flavors came to be.
