The meat specialists at Logan Farms Honey Glazed Hams pride themselves on their signature recipes for hams and turkeys. Each hand-trimmed cut is dry cured in a housemade low-sodium brine, smoked with hickory, and glazed in a blend of honey and spices before being spiral cut and packaged for in-store pickup or shipping. Staff also prepare gourmet meats ranging from akaushi beef to smoked texas brisket. Each of the company's nine locations features its own counter-service market café. Lunches—such as po' boys and grilled burgers—are served, and a range of gourmet groceries—such as mustards and bean blends—line the shelves.
Since first sharing traditional family-style delicacies with customers in 1985, The Ham'Let has treated taste buds to an assortment of non-frozen meats slathered in its secret glaze of honey, spices, and sugar. Patrons can consume completely cooked, sugar-cured honeybee hams at any temperature and freeze each fresh ham hunk for up to six months for future savoring or repurposed careers as stalagmites. The Ham'Let’s inventory appeases many palates with honey-glazed, spiral-sliced, or peppered smoked turkeys, copious condiments, and an extensive selection of side dishes and gourmet desserts.
