This Clifty Farm Country Ham is a dry aged ham, rubbed with a simple salt and sugar cure mix, before being paper wrapped and aged for over 90 days. During that 90 days, the ham ages in different temperatures to re-create the seasons of the year — winter, spring and summer, just like hams that were cured many decades ago in open air environments. This attention to detail creates a delicious, bold flavor that can only come from this time and patience. After the curing and aging process is completed, the ham is hand cut into slices perfect for serving as an entree or enjoying with your favorite breakfast foods.

More About Country Ham
Country Ham is an artisan product. The traditional method for being made is often compared to dry aged hams that are imported. To make a country ham, it must have at least a 4% salt content and be aged over 70 days. This process came to the U.S. many centuries ago by immigrants who had perfected this art of curing and preserving meat to eat year-round. It is recommended that this ham be stored in refrigeration.
