Phillips Brothers Country Hams is a family owned business serving North Carolina since 1947. We are committed to a life-long, honest relationship with our customers and community. Phillips Brothers is dedicated to being the best provider of pork products cured the old-fashioned way. The company processed beef and pork for area farmers, cutting and wrapping the different cuts of meat and quick-freezing it. Back then, very few folks had home freezers, so we rented freezer lockers for people to store their meat and vegetables in. We cured the pork hams, shoulders and side meat for bacon and even cooked out the lard. In 1962, Mr. Cummings decided to sell his business because of poor health. Talmadge Phillips, my father, and his older brothers bought the business and continued to process meat for the farmer as well as cure more hams on the side. The business name was changed to Phillips Brothers Country Hams in the early 1970's. As more and more people bought home freezers and relied on the local grocery store for their meat, the processing operation was discontinued in 1980. This was when the business switched entirely to curing country hams and side meat. The business is still owned and operated by my father and my husband, Larry Craven and myself, Dianne Craven. Our son, Phillip Craven, is the third generation of our family to work in the ham curing business. My father's brother has retired from the business. We also process fresh sausage, seasoned with our secret, old southern blend of herb seasonings. We cure side meat for seasoning your vegetables and dried beans for that down home flavor of the South.
