This club meets monthly to learn about country hams and the local meat industry here in Lexington. At the end of this project, participants are required to present a speech at the Fayette County 4-H Communication Day Contest and the KY State Fair. Fayette County 4-H Country Ham members are also eligible to sell their cured hams at the Fayette County 4-H/FFA Livestock and Ham Showcase Sale in September.
