Tom & Tracy Calhoun with hams
Tom Calhoun and Daughter Tracy, agree with the critics:

Patrick O'Connell (The Inn at Little Washington) about Calhoun: "He's a ham artist. Tom's hams are moister, less salty and low on preservatives."

"An incredible ham from Calhoun's Ham House in Culpeper, VA ... It took one phone call, credit card in hand, to have a silky ham arrive two days later by UPS." -- Nancy McKeon (Food Editor, Writer, Washington Post 12/27/96)

Where To Find It- Advice from the Pros article by Thomas Head, Food Editor, Washingtonian Magazine, 10/97: "Two Virginia producers of country ham were recommended; one was Calhoun's in Culpeper, VA."

"The process of curing a ham remains the same, although refrigeration allows Tom to use less salt than his grandfather did." Associated Press news story, 4-22-00.
