So many processed ham brands claiming to be Country Ham are very different from our natural air-dried Country Hams cured with the same methods used for generations on the family farms of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

"I grew up in our family grocery business in Roanoke, VA.
Smithfield hamswere one of our specialty holiday food items. We also sold a lot of country hams. China bought Smithfield Foods and no Smithfield Hams that I know of can be found now. Bottom line is I feel I am a good judge of country style ham and Rays Country Ham is a great and authentic country ham.I have ordered it several times after receiving my first package as a gift from my sister. If you like country ham I think you'll like Rays Country Ham."
"One of the best COUNTRY Ham’s I’ve ever had.
For those of you who have never had Country ham, keep in mind it will be saltier and a very distinct flavor. I bought a whole ham. Slicing and skillet cooking is what I like best and the flavor was everything and more than I expected. And I’ve had plenty. If you like a cross between bacon and “City” ham, this is the ham for you. Price was very reasonable considering it was packaged well, gift worthy and came with additional items to store whole depending on how and when you may start slicing it. I will definitely purchase again."
"The Real Deal - this is the country ham to buy!
I grew up in North Carolina. Moved all over the US for my career, settled in Omaha, Nebraska. There is no country ham within 500 miles of here, so I ordered Ray's to try it out. That first ham biscuit took me right back home - this is full of good old Southern flavor! To those who don't know the difference, country ham is cured with salt and it has a chewier texture than city ham. Slap a couple pieces on a homemade biscuit and you'll never be the same again. Absolutely will buy this again and again, thank you to Rays for such an outstanding product!"
If you know where North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky almost join, that's where Rays Country Ham was born. That was long before Ray became the first to ever serve Country Ham between a Southern Biscuit in America's Fast Food Restaurants. And if you know and love the beautiful shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains, that's where you will still find us today. They called that place Mount Airy long before our neighbor Andy Griffith and the rest of the world started calling it Mayberry. We just call it home, and that's a place on this map where you will find
A TASTE FROM ANOTHER PLACE IN TIME.
