The 4-H Country Ham Project is for youth or adults to learn the process of curing a country ham.
Through this project, youth and adults experience the process of curing ham, as well as learning about animal science and communications. Letcher County has had some great success in the country ham project the past years.
This project begins Jan. 23 at 5 p.m. for a cost of $28. It will end in August with youth and adults cleaning the hams several times. In August, the hams will get their final cleaning.
