Winning Ham Sells for $2.8 Million at Kentucky State Fair
I love ham just has much as the next person. Any way you want to prepare ham, I will tuck a napkin in my shirt collar and pull myself toward the table.
But I don't like ham THAT much.
And by THAT much, I mean $2.8 million dollars.
That's what the Kentucky State Fair's grand champion ham sold for Thursday morning at auction.
Of course, I was being facetious. This is all fundraising money and, well, THOSE are a lot of funds.
Broadbent B&B Foods of Kuttawa, down around the lakes, produced the 18.8 pound behemoth. (And I bet it is DEEEE-LICIOUS!)
WAVE3 out of Louisville says that this purchase sets the auction record. Of that I have no doubt.
The annual Kentucky Farm Bureau Breakfast and Auction is a celebration of the Kentucky farmer.
Whaddya know? Now I'm hungry for ham.
