2017 Kentucky Country Ham Grand Champion

Broadbent Country Hams of Kuttawa, Kentucky took home the Grand Champion prize for best in show at the 2017 Kentucky State Fair. It was their 17th victory.

That 21 lb ham was put up for auction this morning.

Central Bank submitted the winning bid of $325,000 with the monies then being donated to the University of Kentucky.

We live in the most fertile food region of the US but we suffer greatly when it comes to country ham. In spite of New Orleans status as being the finest eating city in the US, a country store in rural Kentucky will afford you a better chance of scoring pluperfect cured country ham.

This was a down year for the big ham auction. Last year’s winner brought in $600k.
