Where else indeed to start an artisan biltong business than on the sunny Isle of Wight after leaving the hot bush of Zimbabwe? The artisan producers (in the truest sense of the words) making Greeff’s Beef Biltong think they chose the perfect location when forming the Isle of Wight Biltong Co. Hand made. A grandfathers recipe. And numerous Great Taste Awards. Seems they got it pretty much spot on with their incredibly tasty, nurtritious snacks which uses only malt vinegar and sea salt to cure the beef. Naturally high in protein, it is a perfect snack for the active people out there, plus it’s easy to store and carry in well portioned packets.
Sarah Greeff came to the UK from Zimbabwe and runs Isle of Wight Biltong with her husband Nick. All of the lovely biltong is made by these two pairs of hands from British beef in a small butchery unit on the lovely Newnham farm.
Nick learned how to make biltong aged just 6 years old by his grandfathers side on their cattle ranch near Bulawayo, and has loved eating his Oupa’s flavoured biltong ever since. It’s so good it won a Great Taste 2 Star award!
There are also four other tasty flavours all available in Selfridges in London, or from the lovely BoroughBox website. Sold in perfect pocket sized packets of nutritional goodness (no nasties). Garlic with Great Taste Award, Sweet Chilli with another Great Taste Award, Black pepper and the divine Oak Smoked flavour – all the yumminess of Original topped off with the lovely flavour of smoked meat.
We hope you enjoy snacking on our lovely biltong as much as we enjoy making it. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
