We use heritage pork raised from traceable breeding lines with quality traits for taste and tenderness for our hams. The breeds are the old fashioned Berkshire, Tamworth, Duroc, Landrace and Hampshire breeds, all renowned for their great flavor. We smoke the ham over real Applewood chips, and never use artificial flavors or smoke. There’s no need to with pork of this caliber!
Our cooperative of small farms follows strict protocols in raising the hogs. They limit the number of animals on the farm and offer humane conditions in which pigs enjoy plenty of room to roam about, full access to the great outdoors, shelter, grain feed and water, and are allowed all their natural rooting and social behavior.
The strict vegetarian diet consists of corn, soybeans and rolled oats, with no hormones,* antibiotics, pesticides, animal by-products or fishmeal. Air-chilling eliminates water retention and preserves the superior quality and natural juiciness of the meat.
Boneless, easy to serve, and available in two sizes, this ham is not only perfect for a special occasion; it also serves as a weeknight workhorse. Fully cooked, it can be sliced cold for sandwiches or salads, shredded and stirred into grits, or tossed in a jambayala. Keep a petite ham in the refrigerator for quick snacks, and ready garnish for eggs, soups or salads.
This boneless smoked ham is quick and easy to serve—just heat and slice! Available whole (5-7 lbs.), or as a “petite” ham (1.5 - 3 lbs.) that’s ideal for smaller gatherings.

"These creamy grits with truffles are inspired by one of Ariane Daguin's favorite dishes, Escaotoun, a traditional Gascon dish made with cornmeal and cream."
