Cured off the bone, this ham is rubbed with salt and sugar and smoked over real applewood chips.
Inspired by the old-time flavor of the heritage pork, we keep our recipe and curing process simple. We never use artificial flavors or liquid smoke. That’s part of the reason why our ham is so incredibly delicious.
The petite ham is perfect to keep in the refrigerator for convenient everyday use; snacks, charcuterie and cheese boards, sandwiches, salads and more.

Our mission is to find farmers that share our vision of a more humane and sustainable way of rearing livestock. We respect our place in the food chain, and see farmers as true stewards of the land and environment. This is why we build real relationships with our farmers, and work only with those who respect nature and focus on the best animal welfare practices.
Our Berkshire hogs are happy hogs, raised by a cooperative of small farms in Missouri at the foot of the Ozark Mountains. This group of about a dozen family farms raises Berkshire and cross breeds, which we refer to simply as “heritage.” The hogs are fed on pasture, with access to water and supplemental grain consisting of corn, soybeans and rolled oats. No pesticides, animal by-products or fishmeal are allowed. The majority of the farms are sustainable “circle farms” that raise and grind their own feed for the pigs.
Families of pigs are left together, to forage and frolic outdoors in pasture land. The indoor spaces offer at least 15 square feet of space per animal, and sows are never put in gestation crates.
The cooperative is strict about banning the use of antibiotics and hormones* on each farm and limiting the number of hogs the farms raise. They seek to add another farmer to the cooperative before they add more pigs to any one farm, making the process more humane for all concerned.They are paid a premium for their humanely-raised pork, making the small family farm a profitable business, and proving that there might be a future in the old breeds after all.

Ham is technically charcuterie; it's cured and smoked pork. Boneless and easy to serve, this fully-cooked ham 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, pasta, rice or salads.
