Bad River Jerky

Bad River Jerky produces a variety of hand-crafted beef jerky products in a small shop that used to be a car mechanic business. Using recipes from a retired, well-loved South Dakotan company, they sell online and in several shops around the state. Their brick-and-mortar shop is in downtown Chamberlain.

Our Story - From the Owner Nikki of Bad River Jerky

"Bad River Jerky started out as a small dream from a small town single mom.  As the story goes, I needed and wanted something more, something I could be proud of and hand off to my sons some day.  I wanted the flexibility to be there for my family and be my own boss, as luck would have it , I found the jerky recipes for sale scrolling thru Facebook one afternoon.  What started out as a small scale business has turned into something more-and I get to work with my family while doing so!  When we say based on a tradition, we mean it!  The previous owners had over 40 years of knowledge in the meat industry, and they still work with me everyday to provide the best meat products out there!  So check out our products, you won't be disappointed!"
