Organic Christmas Hams
We are now taking Christmas Ham orders for 2023.
Ethically and organically farmed, our mouth-wateringly delicious nitrate-free, wood-smoked Gleneden Ham is sure to impress your guests at Christmas.
Why? Because our old breed Wessex Saddleback pastured pigs are born and raised outside in the organically farmed pastures and woodlands of Gleneden Family Farm. They are free to wallow, run and get down and dirty in the mud they love. Our piggies are regularly moved (by us) to new areas so they can eat their favourite diet of sweet grasses, nutritious herbs, sugar rich roots and protein filled bugs. We also provide them with a sustainably farmed and chemically tested grain & protein ration for optimal health. This freedom to live happy and natural lives gives the meat a unique, rich and traditional flavour. Our hams are made using our special nitrate-free organic brine (perfected by Rohan) of organic sugar, salt and pickling spices. They are then wood-smoked and packed by our local country butcher.
We have a range of whole 6-8 kg, or a half 3-4.5kg Leg and Shoulder hams at $36/kg. We ask for a $50 deposit to secure your order.
Our hams are available for collection from the Gleneden Farm Shop the week before Christmas or they can be delivery to collection points in Brisbane, Ipswich, Aratula, Warwick and Toowoomba on the weekend of the 18th and 19th Dec 2021.
We have been providing Gleneden Christmas Hams to happy customers for over 10 years and always sell out before Christmas. So please contact us asap to avoid disappointment. But don’t worry – we do sell our ‘Christmas style’ hams throughout the year.
Here’s what some of our customers say about our hams:
“Thank you. Absolutely the best ham we’ve ever had.” — TK
“The ham was great, we manage to finish it all between Christmas and Boxing Day!” – FB

We’re excited to announce that the 2021 Gleneden Christmas Hams are now ready to order.
