The HoneyBaked Gourmet Ham Past and Present

HoneyBaked gourmet ham is steeped in family tradition over three generations. We still make every ham just the way our father and grandfather did with meticulous attention to each ham. Demand and technology have allowed us to expand both our physical operations and efficient ordering and delivery systems, making it easier for our customers to enjoy all the unique goodness that each of our hams has to offer.

Buying the world's best ham is now easier than ever

The story of the HoneyBaked gourmet ham began more than 50 years ago when the first The HoneyBaked Ham Company store opened in Michigan. Since then, the demand for our world class ham has allowed us to grow to over 400 store locations across the country. Although over the years we've made our hams the same way, buying them has become more convenient than ever.

The making of the HoneyBaked Ham: A gourmet legend

Over 50 years ago, Harry J. Hoenselaar set out to make the world's best gourmet ham. He started by selecting only the finest, premium bone-in hams. Next, he would cure it in his secret marinade to bring out the ham's flavor. Then, he smoked the ham for up to 24 hours over select hardwood chips, insuring that each ham would be tender, moist and juicy. Each ham was sliced with the spiral slicer he invented, all the way to the bone. As a crowning touch, he'd then hand finish each ham with a drenching of his secret recipe sweet and crunchy glaze. The result was the birth of the world's best ham. Through the years Harry passed down his secret recipes and shared his gourmet expertise with his children and grandchildren, who continue to make ham just the way Harry did: One perfect ham at a time.
