Georgia foods featured on Mantry



Back in February I wrote about food-of-the-month clubs as an idea for Valentine’s Day. Since then, I’ve learned about Mantry, another such club featuring artisan foods from around the country.

Subscriptions to Mantry (Modern Man’s Pantry) come with six full-size small-batch products selected by a guest curator.

March at Mantry brought six Georgia products curated by chef Hugh Acheson. The items included:

  • Georgia olive oil from Georgia Olive Farms in Lakeland
  • Raw honeycomb from Savannah Bee Co.
  • Sauce from Southern Soul BBQ out of St. Simon’s Island
  • Pecans from Pearson Farms in Crawford
  • Pork jerky from Stripling’s General Store in Cordele
  • Georgia “ice cream grits” from Nora Mill Granary in Helen

The shipment also comes with recipes for using the products, like Hugh Acheson’s recipe for shrimp and grits.

Subscriptions cost $75 per month, which includes shipping.

I’d say this isn’t just for the modern man.

The pork jerky from Stripplings is almost worth the subscription. If you are down that way be sure to get their pork shanks. Believe Stripplings is closer to Lake Blackshear than Cordele but it has been a couple years since I traveled the Fla/Ga Parkway. so I could be mistaken. Over the years I have shopped there at least a dozen times.

Went to website… It’s not real easy to find out what they’ve previously shipped or what they plan on shipping in the future. However curiosity got the better of me and I signed up. We’ll see what shows up at my door. I can always cancel. Pork jerky sure sounded good…
