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 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 (12-15lbs) or half ham (7-9lbs).
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 delicous 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
Best I've ever tasted
This ham has ruined all other hams for me... I didn't think hams could be so different, but this one is amazingly tender and juicy... Wish it was just a little smokier (smoked a little longer) but I probably will never buy any other ham again except This one....

My new Holiday tradition
After reading all the reviews I knew I had to have this ham on my New Year's Eve buffet. I am already a HUGE fan of the pork collars, the brisket and the prime rib of pork. It is simply the best ham any of us have ever eaten. Moist and tender without the cloying saltiness of most hams.
I also have to comment on the superlative customer service. They have always been helpful in the past but I ordered this ham very late and they went out of their way to get it to me on time.
The shipping prices are steep but the amazingly delicious products and the customer service make it worth the extra cost, 100%!

The Absolute Best Ham!!!!!
We have been serving the bone in ham at our SuperBowl Parties for the past 14 years and no one has ever said anything bad abour the ham other than "Next year order two hams!!!" The 12-16 pound ham is gone before the end of the first quarter and people are asking for the bone!!!!

I have bought a Kurobuta Ham from Snake River Farms in the past and I'll warn you.
You may have to guard the oven as it's cooking, because the amazing smell drives everyone crazy while they wait.
These Hams are succulent, and rich in flavor, I've even converted some people that were not big on Ham until they tasted the SRF Kurobuta.
Now they ask if I'm bringing one with me when we get together.
It has now become a holiday tradition in our household, and I can't imagine a holiday without one (or two) to enjoy.
Try one, you'll be blown away!
