Each year, we get a country ham for Christmas. In past years, we gotten ham from Loveless (Nashville) and the State Farmer's Market in Raleigh.
I know there are greal local farmers like Cane Creek and Brinkley's, to name just two. For a thread on local pig, check out: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/3144...
Ham is about more than just pig, though. Starting out with a great pig is key, but after that, It's about aging and curing.
Are there any local artisanal producers of ham near the Triangle?
