Just a few days ago, a fire destroyed most of the S. Wallace Edwards & Sons country ham operation in Surry, Virginia. The Edwards family has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of concern and support from a loyal community of customers, chefs, and industry partners. They send their heartfelt thanks.

At this time, the family is following the lead of legal and insurance teams to determine next steps. SFA will keep our members posted—here on our website and through our social media channels—on how to support future efforts as they develop.

In the meantime, take a few minutes out of your Friday to listen to the story of S. Wallace Edwards & Sons. It’s easy to understand how this family business has found a home in so many hearts across the country.
