There's something almost magical about Snake River Farms Kurobuta hams. Produced using time honored curing methods and carefully smoked over real hardwood, our gourmet hams are sweet, tender, rich in flavor, and have the perfect essence of smoke. Our Berkshire hams consistently receive top scores in artisan ham comparisons and are frequently featured by celebrity chefs and culinary experts during the holidays. Available in a whole ham (14lbs) or small half ham (6lbs) or large half ham (8lbs).
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.
The Roker Ham
Recently mentioned on The Today Show as "The most delicious piece of meat you will ever eat in your life." The Snake River Farms Kurobuta ham is one of Al Roker's favorite gifts to give during the holidays.
“If there were a ham beauty pageant, the lightly smoked bone-in ham from Snake River Farms, with its gorgeous marbling of deep-red and flush-pink meat, would take first prize hands down.” -- From TheNibble.com, “Best Hams: For the Holiday or any Day”

How To Prepare The Perfect Ham
Our hams are fully cooked, however, completely heating them brings out their full flavor and creates a striking presentation. Read More
First time trying this ham- everyone thought it was the best they ever had- the leftovers made amazing split-pea soup!

Hands Down Best Ham
This was the best ham my family has ever had the privilege to eat. If prepared the way SRF recommends, the flavor is undeniable. This will start a new tradition for our holiday meals.
Thank You All at SRF.

This was our third ham (2 halves and one whole). Exceptional texture and flavor. Delivery is always on time.
The family and friends always appreciate the special goodness of the hams.
I have tried two different glazes but just plain properly reheated is our favorite
(The bone and ham trimmings make delicious split pea soup too.)

Whole bone in ham
Ham was awesome and large enough to break down for 2 hams and a big meaty ham bone for navy bean soup.

Our family truly loved the ham. Thank you so much for the delicious addition to our family Thanksgiving!
We always have ham as part of our family Thanksgiving dinner. It has been years since we had a good ham. We have been on the search for one, but year after year, one variety of ham after another, we are annually disappointed in our hams. Until this year. We bought an 8-lb. Kurobuta ham for our family gathering, and truthfully, the ham was the hit of the dinner. It was wonderful!! It was juicy but not artificially so; it carried a rich, deep ham flavor; best of all, the ham was not sugary sweet. It tasted like hams from an age we thought had gone. All seventeen people around the table raved over the ham and voted for a repeat next year. Honestly, I doubt we can wait that long for another of these delicious hams.
