The first and original
The first and only original biltong from Namibia! An increasingly popular and well-known beef snack for in between meals!
When it comes to importing meat from South Africa, there are some bureaucratic hurdles to overcome. After all, not all meat from South Africa may be imported into Switzerland. But what can you do if the original biltong comes from South Africa? We were diligent and were now able to make it according to the original recipe, Biltong aus Nambia. Although not quite South Africa, the same tradition of biltong is practised there. Moreover, the meat comes from 100% Beef from free-range farming.
Vast landscapes, warm temperatures
The cattle of the Namibian farmers can move freely here all year round together with springbok, kudu and oryx antelope and other wild animals on the untreated, sunny and extensive pastures. Although groundwater resources guarantee the drinking water supply for the animals, the climatic conditions with extended dry periods require careful and forward-looking use of the pastureland. In rearing, allergens, concentrated feed and fattening are completely avoided. The animals grow up in a sustainable, species-appropriate and natural way, ensuring healthy development.
This is pure nature, which you can definitely taste! We therefore highly recommend trying these delicious authentic Namibian biltong products!
How was biltong created?
The Original Namibia Biltong Recipe as Vegan Biltong were developed by the South African trekboers (afrikaans: trekboere, English: trekboers) during the time of the Great Trek (afrikaans: Groot Trek, English: Great Trek) between 1835 and 1841 to preserve the meat from spoiling on their long treks
The Huns previously used this technique in Europe by salting and drying raw meat under the saddles of their horses. Dutch settlers in Namibia modified this method of production and hung the well-salted raw meat pieces in the airy hold of their horse-drawn wagons. The draught and the low humidity dried out the meat – biltong was created.
