It could be if it wasn't for all the red tape and govt agencies with a handout and silly rules/laws

You can sell them as show hams, air fresheners or not for human consumption.


I like how you think

We had a guy here that sold plastic cups for $5 each. The drink inside was free (dry county at the time). He did not have his establishment open long.......... :frowns:

Do as the "raw milk" dairy farmers do, sell a "share of the hog" and then they pay you to raise it and do the work curing the hams. They are paying you for your work, time and materials, not paying for the hams....because they already "own the hog" .....Then you give them the ham when they are ready..... Same thing that the beef people do with selling an animal live weight, then take it to the slaughter house and they make arrangements for how they want it packaged..... only you are also the slaughter house and you are not selling the "ham by the pound or the piece" you already sold the hog and you are just processing it to their specifications.

Gotta give him a hard time....I want to see the ones he said he was going to cure 6 months. No way in the world something edible is going to stay around his place for six months. :hide:
