Edwards Virginia Smokehouse is rooted in tradition. Founded in 1926 by S. Wallace Edwards, Sr. – the business was started by selling dry-cured ham sandwiches to hungry passengers on the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry. Passed down generation to generation, the curing process has proven to be a mixture of science and learned skill. As a family-run business, fathers, sons, daughters, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, and neighbors have contributed to the success of their business. Their fully cooked, dry-cured and hickory smoked Country Ham is perfect for a busy host or hostess. Ideal as a main entree, in sandwiches, on a biscuit, on top of a salads and on a buffet.
