Founded in 1975, Ham Farms is a family-owned and operated business headquartered in Snow Hill, NC. Following graduation from East Carolina University and an off-farm auditing position with Texas Pipeline Gas, Bobby Ham returned home to the family farm. At that time, Woody and Allen Ham were farming approximately 200 acres consisting primarily of row crops. In the early 80's, Bobby had high aspirations and decided it was time to diversify. Beginning with sweet potatoes, the Hams ventured into vegetable production. As the family and the crops grew, so did the company. Before long, the Ham's Yams sweet potato brand spread nationally and internationally.
Now, the Ham Family supplies not only fresh produce, but processed goods as well. In the past 5 years, the Ham Family has opened Natural Blends Vegetable Dehydration, YAMCO and Covington Spirits. These other ventures allows for 100% utilization of the produce we grow. We believe that fresh and processed products are best when they come from a happy family and a happy earth.
