Where can I find real county ham slices

The real stuff - chewy, dense, salty. We used to be able to get it at the Giant and some independent groceries, but no more. Any sightings lately?

    Shopper's Food Warehouse over near my house in Herndon, VA. I am sure other Shopper's grocery stores have them. I use them to cook my mixed greens.

            The farmers market on Saturday mornings in Old Town Alexandria has a vendor who sells country ham slices. They set up by the city hall. They sell slices, chunks and biscuits with ham. I do not eat it but got some for my dad and he loved it.

              That's Calhoun County Hams and it is very good.

              Try Harris Teeter and Food Lion -- they are southern companies and have always had it when I've looked for it.
