Snake River Farms Kurobuta Half Bone-In Ham
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. 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.
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
Simply the Best
We have eaten many SRF Kurobuta hams over the last few years and they are always amazing. I have not found grocery or specialty store hams that can match the quality of SRF hams. Now they are the only hams we buy. Highly recommend!

Awesome or Ok?
Last Thanksgiving my family head the pleasure of cutting into this decadent ham. It lived up to the hype: tender, flavorful, impeccably cured. We nicknamed it "Meat Candy." It was truly special. So much so we ordered it again this year.
Unfortunately this time it didn't live up to the bar it previously set. This time it was more akin to the mere mortal hams we are familiar with.
On average I would give it 4 stars - 5 for the first meat candy experience and 3 for the recent disappointment. That said, I'm sure we will order this in the future. It just might be a bit further out before we give this another shot.

WOW What great ham
Bought this for Easter (yesterday). This is the best ham ever and I thought I already knew what that was. This is now my go to ham. Will recommend and buy as a gift. My wife’s words were that’s a good ham and she’s not a ham fan. Nuff said enjoyed this ham.
