Johnston County Hams

North Carolina's Legendary Country Hams
Johnston County Hams

For over 60 years, Johnston County Hams has been curing country hams, staying true to the traditional techniques created by early American colonists. Their country hams have grown from local favorites to one of the best of this very Southern tradition. Their colonial inspired process involves hand rubbing the hams with a blend of salt and sugar and then letting them cure naturally through temperature changes that mimic the seasons. The hams are then slow smoked in a hickory fired smoker to complete the process that can take up to eight months. The time is well spent as the end result produces a unique, lightly smoked flavor that has made these North Carolina hams legendary.

It’s all about the cure. And for this ham, boys might just cry.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Johnston County Ham has been featured in Esquire, Southern Living, The New York Times, Food and Wine, Wine Spectator and Men's Journal as one of the "100 Best Things to Eat in America."
