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 for delicious uncooked or cooked country ham! Slices, 1/2 hams and whole hams!
