Associate Member Showcase – April 21



National Country Ham Association

The National Country Ham Association (NCHA) was organized in 1992 to represent the interest of Country Ham Producers nationwide. Membership includes processor, supplier and academia advisor members. The processor membership has representation in six states.


Country Ham Comfort

Country ham producers have their own recipes for curing and/or smoking their hams, so while they are similar none are the same. Country ham can be found today in specialty shops or better grocery stores. Time-strapped cooks can simply make a phone call or go online to order a unique country ham, which can be ordered one day and delivered the next, cooked, sliced and ready to serve!

About Our Ham

Every Baumgartner Family Country Ham is cured naturally (no preservatives here!) in a salt, brown sugar and pepper mixture over the course of 7 to 8 months giving them their distinct, rich taste. This process is inspected regularly by officials at the US Department of Agriculture who determine when the hams are ready to be released (usually in July of each year).
