New York maker of Assorted Beef Jerky Gift Box, Chipotle Lime Beef Jerky, Hot Garlic Beef Jerky, and Sweet Molasses Beef Jerky. Founder: Jody Apap. 

Papa, a.k.a. Jody Apap, has been smoking various meats, fishes, jerkies, nuts, and cheeses in small batches for decades, and he also operates a seasonal restaurant and catering business at The Greig Farm in Red Hook, NY.

Jody started smoking pistachios and almonds in his back yard for commercial distribution 7 years ago and developed today’s menu by building and refining the notion of “smoking small.” He developed a few key flavor profiles and his smoking process using applewood and charcoal on The Greig Farm.
