Virginia Ham Shop
Edwards Virginia Ham Shoppe
S. WALLACE EDWARDS & SONS, INC.
Authentic Southern Smoked Meats, Seafood, and Dessert
In 1926, S. Wallace Edwards, the young captain of the
Jamestown-Surry ferry, began selling ham sandwiches to
his passengers. Mr. Edwards had cured the ham on the family
farm according to the family's time tested methods.
Soon demand became great enough that
S. Wallace Edwards began curing hams on a
full-time basis, distributing them to country stores and
fine hotels, and shipping them throughout the country
S. Wallace Edwards & Sons remains a family operation
in Surry County, not far from Jamestown where Indians
taught the first settlers to cure meat. Todays facilities
simulate the curing and seasoning of the hams without
sacrificing the care and attention that results in the
unique flavor of a Virginia ham.
