About Us

During one of the long, cold and snowy winters, Ronnie Mingua began experimenting with the making of beef jerky. He shared his tasty treat with local neighbors and soon realized that he had developed something unlike any other beef jerky that anyone had ever tasted. It is from this humble beginning that Mingua Beef Jerky got its start.

Today, Ronnie still prides himself on continuing to use his old-fashion, all-natural recipe to offer his outstanding product to customers across the nation. His recipe and business is now becoming a family tradition, passed down from generation to generation. Ronnie's son-in-law and daughter, Curtis and Holly Mackley, and grandson Cannon Mackley are proud to join the Mingua Beef Jerky business and carry on his unique talent. Nestled in the rolling hills of Bourbon County, Kentucky, Mingua Beef Jerky uses only the finest ingredients to hand-make each piece of jerky.

Mingua Beef Jerky is proud of its Enviro-Pac CHU-2000 cooking equipment. Enviro-Pac cooks meat at the USDA required levels for both moist or dry operation. Mingua Beef Jerky would like for you to become one of the many satisfied jerky customers and try their quality hand sliced all natural beef jerky. We know that you'll love it just as much as we do and come back again and again.
