Country ham applications are now available. Henry County 4-H is excited to let everyone know we are participating in this program again this year.
We are also, once again, opening this program up to adults, too. So, all ages 9 years and older can join in this great project.
Last year we had over 100 hams hanging in our ham house.
A heritage project, curing meat is an old tradition that was done out of necessity due to the lack of refrigeration. People would cure their meat with salt, sugar and spices.
