For more than 30 years, our family-run company, The Honey Glazed Ham Co. Ltd., has served North American-style, made-to-order spiral sliced holiday ham throughout GTA to Canadian families. Since 1985, we have worked with superior pork and an intensive seven-day process to produce the best mouth-watering, delicious ham you can buy that's low in salt and water — and a breeze to store and serve!

The Holidays are here!
Normally, a time to celebrate with friends and family.
Gatherings to share good times, good food, and conversation.
Since 1985, we at The Honey Glazed Ham Company have always looked forward to this season with great anticipation of providing a delicious part of the celebrations to our fellow Canadians.
However, 2020 has brought this pandemic that the whole world is having to deal with.
Social distancing, masks, small gatherings, and general caution and common sense are the new normal.
So, it is with great regret that we announce our need to shut down our production of hams for this holiday season.
You see, we make each and every one of our hams by hand, to order, and that requires a large temporary staff that comes in each holiday to deal with the volume of hams that we need to produce in a short period of time.
And this year, that is just not safe. It is not safe for our workers and it’s not safe for you.
As much as this hurts me to say, for the first time in 35 years of business, from December 5th, 2020, to January 5th of 2021 we will not be selling our hams.
We sincerely hope to have your continued patronage and support in the new year, or whenever we get back to some sort of normal!
Our Special Process
It takes a long time, a lot of care, and — of course — a secret recipe.
Each honey glazed ham is made from hand-picked, grain-fed Ontario Pork, carefully trimmed and naturally smoked to perfection. Every ham is cured over a mixture of hickory and applewood chips for up to 30 hours. During this time, the unmistakable natural smoke flavour permeates every morsel of the ham.
In total, the process takes about a week, yielding without fail a perfect, fully cooked, delectable ham that is low in sodium, phosphate, and fat, with a minus .05% water content. In comparison, most commercial hams are artificially smoked and contain 20-40% water.
Each ham is then spiral sliced on our patented Spiral Slicing machine: they go around and around the bone from end to end in one continuous slice. Next, we pour a special mixture over the ham, made of pure honey and our secret honey buds, along with carefully blended herbs and spices. We then let the special mixture seep into the ham right down to the bone. Finally, as a unique final touch, we fire glaze the ham to form a delicious and decorative crusty coating, which makes each and every honey glazed ham simply irresistible — to both the eye and the palate.
