Patriot Jerky


Patriot Jerky is a family-owned and operated USDA federally inspected business handcrafting small-batch beef jerky. The jerky itself comes in 2.5 oz bags, and are offered in 4 flavors: The Recruiter Teriyaki, Basic Training (mild), Recon (medium), and Sniper Fire (HOT)! The unique aspect of Patriot Jerky is the meaning behind the brand itself. Patriot Jerky is inspired by the military, law enforcement, first responders, firemen, and other individuals who have fought for our country.
