Holiday Hams!


We offer three types of ham for the holiday season.  Our hams come pre-cooked and vacuum packaged.  You can either slow roast them in the oven to heat them or heat them directly in the bag.  The Hampshire ham will take a good glaze well while the Suffolk ham needs no condiment except some good mustard.  We ask for a 20 deposit on our hams as they are made to order!

  • Hampshire Hams
  • This is our version of a smoked holiday Ham. Its recipe is derived from an old English recipe that uses cider and molasses as the brine for the pork.  It is then smoked to give it a good flavor and a golden color.

It is made from the bone-in hock end of the leg.  Great for roasting and endless leftover meals, this will make an excellent presentation at your holiday table.  Give us your target weight and we will do our best to get close to it.  Sizes available are between 9 and 15 pounds.  Cost of this ham is $10.99/#

  • Suffolk Hams
    • These hams take the word “Ham” to a new level! It is first dry-cured with salt afterwards it is soaked in a marinade of black beer, molasses and spices.  The Suffolk ham will definitely make your holiday table a unique and memorable one!  This ham should not be re-cooked, just reheated in the vacuum sealed bag it comes in
      • The Suffolk ham is available as a whole (9#)or half size(5#). The cost is $14.99/#
  • Yorkshire Ham
    Traditional English-Style boneless ham, Cured with sea salt and dark cane sugar.  This is a milder version of the Suffolk Ham, great for pairing with other meats at the table or as alternative to a red meat roast.  Excellent for leftover sandwiches.  They are available as whole or half hams and are $12.99/#

  • Beef Short Ribs: Slow cooked dishes are a great way to go for the holiday table.  Cooking them a couple days in advance and resting them in their cooking liquid heightens their flavor and reduces stress on the day of your gathering.  We can French them for you for a more elegant appearance.
