#showthankful

This time of year I get sappy – like really sappy about being thankful.  My kids have to hear it and verbalize what they are thankful for everyday and I try to share my thankfulness with others.  But this year, I’ve decided that instead of just saying thank you […]

Even the Queen has had Edwards Ham!We recovered some history of ours we'd like to share. It's a letter from Colonial Williamsburg.

Back in October 1957, Queen Elizabeth II visited Jamestown to mark the 350th anniversary of the nation's first permanent English settlement. We were honored to have our Virginia Country Hams served during her ceremonial visit to Colonial Williamsburg. The letter reads:

"Dear Mr. Edwards,

I know that Mr. Kief and Mr. Griffin have expressed their appreciation for your help in providing us high quality Virginia Hams which we used at the dinner honoring Queen Elizabeth II.

In spite of the fact that the menu listed your ham as Smithfield Ham, it was only done so as a concession to custom and you and I, of course, know where the credit for the production of such hams as yours belongs.

Thanks again for all your cooperation in the past and I hope that we will have many more such events at which we can feature your Virginia Hams.

Sincerely,
George Fauerbach, Director of Restaurant Operations"
