Biltong is air-dried silverside beef that is sliced and marinated in herbs and spices before being hung in our purpose built drying room to air dry. The beef takes between 4-8 days to dry and is checked by hand. Once the biltong is ready it is hand picked then sliced and packed ready to be enjoyed as a tasty snack.
Biltong originated in from South Africa, and it was a dried meat the indigenous people produced which settlers from Europe took a lead from, and went on to develop biltong. Interestingly, the name biltong comes from the Dutch words ‘bil’, meaning rump, and ‘tong’ meaning strip or tongue.
