Our Kurobuta (100% Berkshire breed) hams consistently receive top scores in artisan ham comparisons and are frequently featured by celebrity chefs and culinary experts during the holidays. Produced using traditional curing methods and carefully smoked over real hardwood, our gourmet hams are sweet, tender, rich in flavor, and have the perfect essence of smoke. As the name implies, these are our whole bone-in hams cut in half for meals when less ham is required. There are two sizes of half bone-in hams: small (about 6lbs.) and large (about 8 lbs).
Kurobuta is the Japanese term for “black hog” and refers to animals of the Berkshire variety, a heritage breed. Kurobuta pork is highly marbled with a beautiful dark color, firm texture, and naturally delicious flavor. The Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries mandates that pork designated as “Kurobuta” must consist of 100% Berkshire animals. Snake River Farms gourmet hams strictly adhere to this requirement. Our animals are treated humanely and are raised on small family farms without hormones using a natural slow feed process.

Our hams are fully cooked, however, completely heating them brings out their full flavor and creates a striking presentation. Read More

There's Ham Then There's SRF Kurobuta
For the past several years the Kurobuta ham (half, bone-in) has graced my table on high occasions, as well as gifts to family. Now, no large interest in whether I will visit just whether I will send the ham! It's that good.

not worth the money
I have been getting the SRF emails for awhile and was actually going to buy one of the beef options for the family gathering, but they were sold out of what I was interested in. Went with the ham instead and it was ok but certainly not worth the money.

We ordered this ham for Christmas, and it was terrific. The texture was very pleasing, and the taste was terrific. There is no comparison to a watery grocery store ham.

Tremendous. Best available, which is why we order one each year.
