Generations of Ranchers, Locally Grown Beef

Top Notch is owned by the Jed Jacobs family, a 4th generation ranching family. Located in southeast Idaho, the Wind Rivers mountain range (Home of the Grand Tetons) is the backdrop to our feed lots. With generations of ranchers and locally-grown beef, you are guaranteed the best quality and price on our jerky.

From Cattle to Consumer

We own and control nearly every aspect of the business*, which allows us to keep our prices low. We are proud to have locally-grown beef, raising our own Corriente cattle in our St. Anthony, Idaho feedlots. We handle all the fabrication and processing of the cattle, as well as produce and package all our Top Notch beef jerky and meat snacks at our new state-of-the-art production facility located just minutes from our feedlots in Sugar City, Idaho. `

*The only thing we don't own and control is freight.

Corriente Cattle

More on our locally-grown beef: Corriente beef is said to have a unique flavor unlike other beef brands. It is naturally marbled, which provides excellent tenderness and juiciness. It is also said to be healthier than most other red meats because it is naturally lean; it is lower in fat and cholesterol and contains fewer calories. Corriente cattle produce high protein content in their beef! (source)

Where does the beef come from?

All our beef is locally grown, and most of our beef is located in a feedlot in St. Anthony.

Can you do custom processing for beef or wild game that we bring in?

No. We process all our beef in a USDA approved facility, which does not allow us to process your beef or game.

What are your half beef prices?

Fresh and frozen beef is available in our local store. Our "Freezer Filler" has three options: quarter, half, or whole beef. Prices depend on the weight and customization. Half beefs vary from $1,100-1,200 on average. Cutting and wrapping fee is calculated in that price. Time frame depends on how long the waitlist is.
