Wenzel’s Farm, a small batch meat snacks company, earned a Guinness World Record for the longest meat stick. The 314-foot-long creation contains beef and pork and was made with the brand's original recipe.

“Wenzel's farm has been providing quality meat products for 75 years, and setting the Guinness World Record for the longest meat snack stick was the perfect way to celebrate this amazing milestone,” said Mark Vieth, president of Wenzel's. “It has been an honor to be part of this community for the last 75 years, and we look forward to the next 75. As a company, we want to thank everyone who joined us  in this celebration, helping us be a part of making history and eating a piece of history!”

Wenzel's Farm has partnered with Devro, a manufacturer of collagen casings and films, to create a casing long enough and strong enough to withstand the attempt.

The company made the gigantic meat stick during its 75th Anniversary celebration on August 19, with a mid-day official measurement taking place with a Guinness World Records adjudicator confirming that the record was set. After the record was set, the entire 314-foot, naturally smoked snack stick was shared with those in attendance so the entire community could play a role in this record setting event. 

A full day of events took place at Wenzel's Park in Marshfield, Wisconsin, to celebrate Wenzel's Farm 75th Anniversary. The day was filled with food, family friendly games, bounce houses, a dunk tank, mini-golf and a karaoke competition. The evening wrapped up with a free concert by nationally acclaimed and chart-topping sibling duo, Jocelyn and Chris.

Wenzel’s Farm offers 14 snack stick varieties and five varieties of jerky, all of which are crafted in small batches using premium cuts of meat, seasoned and naturally hard wood smoked. Wenzel’s Farm has been producing Wisconsin meat products from family recipes since 1949.
