4-H Country Ham Project 2018

Plans are underway to start the 4-H country ham project for 2018. A contract must be signed and submitted to the Extension Office by December 1. There is a small fee attached to this project. This year the fee is $60. The curing process begins in January and the project runs through the Kentucky State Fair in August. All activities are completed at the Extension Office and all supplies are furnished. Each participant must give a 3-5 minute speech on an assigned topic pertaining to country hams. If the participant chooses not to complete the project, the two hams are forfeited and the fee is not returned. The two competitions are at the county and state fairs. Each participant who successfully completes the project will take home two country hams. If you would like more information, please call the Extension Office at 586-6101.
