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 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. 

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.  Our animals are treated humanely and are raised on small family farms without hormones using a natural slow feed process

Snake River Farms hams are natural products so weights can vary by +/- 0.5 pounds.



Hams come from the back leg of the hog, also called the ham primal. There are multiple muscles in this primal, but the three that contribute the most weight to a ham are the biceps femoris, semitendinosus and the semimembranosus.

Fast fact: Historians credit the Chinese with inventing the ham based on a written reference to a cured pork leg dated in 4900 B.C.
