Inflation has hit hard everywhere but nowhere as great as Louisville where Beth and Ronny Drennan of Broadbent Food Products saw their creation sell for $5M last week.
Luther Deaton – the president of Central Bank combined his bid of $2.5M with Joe and Kelly Craft’s equivalent offer to secure $5M for the record-shattering 17.2lb hunk of cured hog meat.
That’s $18,169 per ounce
The moneys will be donated to the victims of Kentucky’s historic flooding that occurred last month.
A Broadbent Ham normally sells for a little under $70.
It’s a great thrill to be in rural Kentucky around the first frost. That’s hog killin’ time and the air is filled with excitement.
