All natural, dry cured ham made in Boone, North Carolina.

Since 1948, Goodnight Brothers has been producing all natural, dry cured ham in the North Carolina High Country.

The production process takes about a year to complete.

Starting with pigs that are raised on family farms where they are free roaming, grown in small numbers and never administered antibiotics, the company cures, ages, de-bones, slices and packages over 40 different cuts of country ham.

The cure mix is applied by hand. No nitrates or nitrites are used except for those naturally occurring in sea salt and celery powder.

This salty, chewy meat has deep Appalachian roots. “We pay close attention to quality and detail by taking the traditions that have been handed down for centuries by our Appalachian forefathers and combining them with the technological advances of our modern world,” says the company on its website. “It is said that the art of dry curing ham is one of the few traditions that technology has not significantly altered but has actually improved.”

@21plusTravel Taste Test: Salty and chewy, this country ham may be the best we’ve ever tasted. It has a dry bite, clean mouthfeel and although the snap of salt is strong (as is to be expected with country ham), the ham flavor shines through. This ham works well as part of a country breakfast, backpack lunch, or anytime snack.
