There will be approx. 22 people.

Any suggestions welcome.

    Fair Food Farms in the RTM used to bring them in - haven't seen anything this holiday though - might be worth a call! I got one from them a couple years ago and it was great!

      go online and get a Harrington cob smoked ham and have it shipped. It has the most delicious flavor due to the cob smoking that you will ever find in a ham. Well worth it and I'm sure you can get it by Christmas. http://www.harringtonham.com/

      Try Groff`s meats near Lancaster. They have less salt than most, are inexpensive, ship with no grief and IMHO are the bomb, been getting them for a long time.

        S. Clyde Weaver in the Lancaster County Farmer's Market. Here is a link to the web page of the farmer's market which lists the various vendors in the market. If you scroll down you will find a link for S. Clyde Weaver. The hams are from Lancaster County and excellent. http://www.lancastercountyfarmersmark...

            I had to go to Allentown on the 22nd for business and ended up with a Honey Baked Ham which was good.

              Is Eugene Moyer/Blooming Glen pork still in the reading Terminal Market? There's is the best! Perhaps even worth a trip out to Blooming Glen in Bucks County.

            I had the best ham ever at a holiday party this year. It was from Meadow Run Farm, a Lancaster County farm that sells humanely raised meats. If you plan ahead, you can order through the buying club at Farm to City.
