Christmas Hams for Sale
Wickedfood Earth Farm is once again offering very limited hand-crafted hams for Christmas. Each ham is individually cured, dependent on its weight, using time-honored, artisanal practices. All our hams are selected from our own pigs. We use no preservatives, or liquid smoke. Once cured, our hams are vacuum packed and flash frozen to lock in flavour, perfect for a hot Xmas day. (Book now to avoid disappointment for delivery early December – contact me asap to place an order together with approximate size).
Whole Xmas hams
At Wickedfood Earth Farm, we produce two very different hams for Christmas (we also supply cooking instructions and serving suggestions):
- Brined cold smoked ham (gammon) – A pork leg that has been cured in a salt brine solution, cold smoked and cured. This ham first needs to be boiled, before it is brushed with a glaze and then roasted in the oven. Our brined uncooked hams are between 3,5 and 8kg each, at R170/kg;
- Hot smoked cured ham – Cured in a brine, as above, and then hot smoked. They are already cooked, and are delicious served cold, with either a mustard sauce, sweet pickle or marjoram salsa. These hot smoked hams are between ±1,5kg and ±4,5kg, at R180/kg.

At Wickedfood Earth Farm we run free-range pigs as an important mix to our farming model. They live outdoors and are not confined in small cages or overcrowded barns. In addition to being able to forage in large camps, we supplement their diet with fresh vegetable offcuts supplied by the various packing houses in our area. This means that our animals are eating vegetables that are fresher than those available to the consumers on supermarket shelves.
We do not use antibiotics and growth hormones or stimulants. Due to our natural farming practises, our animals take on average, twice as long to reach maturity as factory-farmed animals. This means that the muscles of the animals get to work, which ensures added flavour. Free-range pork is something very special and unique. The meat has exquisite flavour and colour, and superior texture with crunchy crackling.
