Broadbent B & B Foods has been producing Old Fashioned Country Ham since 1909. A Truly American Food that has been on this continent since colonial days. Country Ham and Dry Cured Bacon were staples that sustained many of our first settlers as they moved west. Climates had to be just right to cure hams in the days before electricity and Kentucky's climate fit the bill. Therefore the Broadbent family brought those curing traditions with them when they settled in Kentucky. They continued to use them to dry cure and preserve their pork. We still dry cure Country Ham, Bacon and Sausage the old fashioned way, like our forefathers. Today Country Ham is far from a Staple, it is found on menus of ritzy restaurants all across America. It can be called Country Ham, yet it is often called Prosciutto and used as the center piece of Charcuterie Boards.
Bacon is still a staple for many Americans, being consumed in the average household weekly. Bacon is no longer considered just a breakfast food. It is a sandwich all in itself or a topping for a variety of sandwiches, plus a topping for salads, baked potatoes, pastas and much more. Enjoy Broadbent Smoked Bacon by the slab or pre-sliced. Likewise, Broadbent Sausage is perfect for breakfast, especially for sausage gravy, but also delicious for sausage balls and many other recipes using breakfast sausage. Broadbent Breakfast Sausage is still stuffed in cloth bags and then hung in the smoked and hickory smoked to perfection.
