    From your list, I have only eaten hams from Broadbent. I have bought many of their products for 40+ years. I love the taste and the quality of their hams. The hams are not as salty as some companies, yet salty. Everyone in my family and in my husband's family buy their hams from Broadbent. I no longer cook the country hams. I take the easy way out and buy the cooked and sliced, item 44. We freeze any ham not eaten. If you buy from them, they have great customer service. In 40 years they have made a mistake with my order once. And they shipped the correct order by air so I would have it in time.

    Every company cures their hams differently. So it really is what your taste is. I have never met a country ham I didn't like. I just prefer Broadbents'.

      Thanks for the thoughts on Broadbent. They are I think near the top of the list.

      Best regards, tony

      I'd recommend ordering a ham from Blood Farm in Groton. They do not have a website, but are located at 94 W Main St. Groton, MA and can be reached at (978) 448-6669.

      Family owned for five generations and everything is fresh and delicious.
