4-H Ham Project entry deadline today

This is the last day to sign up to be part of a ham curing project.

Crittenden County 4-H is offering an opportunity for local youth to learn the age-old art of curing a smoked country ham. Any Crittenden Coutian age 9-18 is eligible to participate in this months-long process that will culminate with an entry and trip to the Kentucky State Fair Ham Contest on Aug. 15. 

Cost is $70, which includes two hams that will belong to the participant when the project is complete. 

Today is the deadline to register at the Extension office.
