My family in Rockingham and Shenandoah County Virginia have been making the real Ham (for what Smithfield has only partially been for some years now) for over 100 years. It’s easier then making a good or any beer (which i have not done yet). When Americans get around to it we’ll continue to sell the best in the World and the most.

I’d like to see the stats on how much prosciutto di parma get’s sold in Des Moines as opposed to La Quercia’s stuff that lifts serious reps and is made quite literally down the road from us.

Prosciutto di parma is hardly country ham. You are comparing apples & oranges. Country ham is salt cured ham. Period. It is not herb infused, sea salt rubbed, whatever else prosciutto di parma is.
It is what it is. Take it or leave it.


Pretty sure bro was referencing the imports that are about to happen. Aside from that. Smithfield (the company) doesn’t really make the old school Smithfield-style country ham anymore.

You’re FOS. My local grocery still sells the country hams in the (burlap or whatever cloth it is) sack.
I can go buy 50 of them if I wanted to.


According to their website, Smithfield, the company, doesn’t produce a country ham.

And BTW, Proscuitto di Parma is simply a salted and dry cured ham, nothing more, nothing less. Sound familiar?

Well, find another local producer. Lots of pig companies around these parts, shouldn’t be too different around the US.

Wrong website, Jr.


No, it’s not. Smithfield foods was sold to Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd. Here is the portfolio:

Smithfield foods has a brand called smithfield, here is the product line:
