There are many different types of hams out there, but the country hams from OVHS are among the best you can find. Enjoy the traditional, authentic Virginia Country Ham you grew up with. Each ham is hand-carved, salt-cured, aged in sugar & salt or smoked, and they’re always delicious. We are known for our signature hams that will put the heartiest of souls at ease. People don’t just visit the Virginia Beach area for the beaches anymore. Folks are coming to town to indulge in good food, great shopping, and of course, the Southern way of life. OVHS has been serving up friendly service and tasty, authentic meats for over 65 years. Browse our online store and come visit us at our new location in Ghent.

We take hams to a whole new level with our artisan chef cooked and hand deboned hams, never factory or mechanically separated. Come experience the difference and delight.
