The Kentucky State Fair grand champion country ham fetched $350,000 at a charity auction today. Harper’s Country Hams of Clinton produced the grand champion country ham.
The sale was conducted during the Kentucky Farm Bureau’s 50th annual country ham breakfast.
History was made on a couple of fronts at this year’s auction. For the first time in a half-century of sales, the auctioneer was a woman — Danetta Allen of Mt. Vernon, Ky.
