Acorn-finished Whey-fed Ham Steak

Moxie Ridge Farm & Creamery

Acorn-finished Whey-fed Ham Steak

smoked, roughly 1" thick

whey-fed, acorn-finished, forest raised, humane, non-GMO

Raised in the forest and smoked at Locust Grove Smokehouse in Argyle, NY, this ham steak strikes a balance of smoke, savory, and umami with a lingering nuttiness at the finish. Great for pan frying or adding to mac and cheese.

The Meat:

Raised in the woods of Argyle, NY these pigs are crosses of the Hungarian Mangalitsa breed and American heritage breeds (namely Duroc and Berkshire). Farmer and cheesemaker Lee Hennessy raises them from weaned piglets, feeding them fresh goat milk whey from the creamery every day along with a non-GMO grain grown just 8 miles from the farm. In the fall, they are finished on acorns and hickory nuts, borrowing from the Jamon Iberico tradition.
