Country Ham: Where Did WayCo Ham’s Curing Process Come From?

Where did the WayCo Ham curing process come from? Colonial North Carolina! The meat was slaughtered in the cold temperatures of winter, buried for preservation, cleaned and hung in the spring, then “aged” in the summer air. 70-years ago, our founder Waitus Worrell was so intrigued with the idea he tried it using modern-day temperature-controlled equipment. And now…you can enjoy it too! Just visit Waycohams.com for delicious uncooked or cooked country ham! Slices, 1/2 hams and whole hams!

What is a “Cure Master”?

What is a Cure Master? It’s a word of honor bestowed on an individual who has decades of experience understanding how to cure meats, and keeps the secret ingredients secret, so that when their product is made today, it has the same taste, texture, aroma, and flavor from years ago! At WayCo Hams, that’s George Worrell, 3rd generation Cure Master, using the exact methods of producing the finest North Carolina Country Ham passed on by Waitus Worrell, first generation of WayCo Ham Company and our first Cure Master.

Our Curing Process…then and now!

Country Ham: The “Then” image from WayCo Hams may be the past, but the way we cure our Authentic North Carolina Country Ham “Now” is the same as it was “Then”!

After being hand rubbed two times, the aging and drying process lasts for more than 100-days (versus 10 or less for the “mass” producers).

We let the flavor happen naturally. That’s why it tastes so good! WayCo Hams, celebrating 70-years of goodness!
