THE HISTORY OF “JERKY”
Ch’arki is a name derived from the Quechuan language of the Peruvian lncan Empire to describe the process of preserving meat in Pre Columbian days. The name and process of making Ch’arki later morphed into the Spanish word Charqui and traveled northward as the Spanish Conquistadores explored North America. It’s believed that the Native Americans adopted it from the Spaniards and later passed it on to the earliest settlers of America to what we now know as “Jerky!”
ALL NATURAL RAISED LAMB JERKY
RANCHLINE ALL NATURAL uses only the finest cuts of lamb raised under the watchful eyes of Peruvian herders and their dogs on ranches in the United States. Just like in the Andes Mountains of Peru, as it was 800 years ago, the rich history of the lncan Empire continues to exist in the modern day method of raising and producing Ranchline’s authentic gourmet Ch’arki.
