Our delicious pasture raised hams come to you fully cooked. The same goes for ham steaks—a great option if you want smaller portions for your meal. The process of preparing ham or ham steaks for dinner is just a matter of warming them thoroughly without drying them out. Here are some handy time and temperature suggestions.



  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F.
  2. Place your fully thawed ham in a shallow roasting pan. Add a little fluid to prevent scorching.
  3. Bake uncovered allowing 18 to 24 minutes per lb of ham.
  4. Your ham is ready to enjoy when the internal temperature reaches 135°F.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 min before carving.

Cranberry sauce, or any fruit drizzle, is a great condiment for your delicious pasture raised ham. Try it out, and enjoy the tangy-sweet results.

  1. Combine water sugar and corn starch in sauce pan.
  2. Bring to boil and simmer for about 5 minutes.
