The Jeff Little Trio

Jeff Little is an award-winning musician from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. With few exceptions the piano does not play a prominent part in Americana or Appalachian music and is rarely the lead instrument. But Jeff Little is an exception and a remarkable one. Jeff has not only been recognized as a critically acclaimed musician but also a true music innovator.

How to Cure a Country Ham Saturday, June 8th at 1pm Old Store Vendor Spotlight: Learn how to cure an Ashe County Country Ham with Nancy Jordan from AB Vannoy Hams.

What makes AB Vannoy Hams special?

Country ham connoisseurs agree that the slow curing process and the lack of artificial preservatives make the Vannoy ham the highest quality country ham available on the market today. It's the same authentic process and the same great flavor year after year, ham after ham. From whole hams to prosciutto, take a step back in time and taste the tradition for yourself with the many products AB Vannoy Hams has to offer.
