It's hard to believe, but we first discovered the beef jerky at Sturgis in 1975 while visiting the Korczak Ziolkowski Crazy Horse monument. While there wasn't much to see of the monument in those days, only an armpit hole, when we stumbled upon the place selling the Sturgis jerky we found ourselves in jerky heaven. We have had jerky from numerous places over the decades and nothing by far compares with the taste and quality of the beef jerky that the Sturgis plant offers. This is, BY FAR, the very best beef jerky you will ever eat. It is well worth the cost. When we want exceptional beef jerky, we always find ourselves returning to Sturgis.
