Gilmer County FFA Ham Bacon and Egg Sale - Today

Gilmer County FFA will round up their Ham Bacon and Egg program with a Local Show and Sale
The Free Press WV

Glenville, WV —The Gilmer County FFA will hold a local Ham, Bacon, and Egg sale at the Gilmer County Recreation Center on Friday March 18th, 2016.

At the sale, FFA members will exhibit fresh farm eggs and fresh country cured and smoked hams and bacons. Since August, members of the Gilmer County FFA Chapter have been working Supervised Agricultural Experiences (a program where students apply what they learn in class by completing projects outside of class that are evaluated by their instructor) that are unique to this state and bring back some tradition and history for this area.

The ham, bacon, and egg program is where students raise hogs and cure the hams and bacons for show, while getting to keep the rest of the meat.

In addition, students who have chickens can enter eggs into the show.

At the show, the meat is evaluated, graded, and placed into a sale order for an auction, where in the past, members have sold eggs for $50-$100 per dozen, hams for $8-$25 per pound, and bacons for $15-$30 per pound, which goes to the FFA members to put back into their projects. Gilmer has been active in the past with eggs, however it has been a while since any members from Gilmer have cured hams and bacons.

Last year, two members raised pigs and the meat was cured at Doddridge County High School with the Doddridge County FFA who have been curing hams and bacons for a long time.

In addition, other members raised and showed eggs. This year there are four members who have cured ham and bacon products, with additional members raising eggs to show and sell as well. Gilmer County FFA members would like to thank the Doddridge County FFA for letting them use their facilities and helping them cure their products.

Last year, Gilmer members showed and sold products at the state sale, and then at the regional sale the next week. This year, members will show at the state show and sale in Charleston, WV on March 13th-14th, and then return home to start a new tradition of having a local sale at the Gilmer County Recreation Center on Friday March 18th at 7:00pm.

Hams and bacons are country cured and smoked products from pigs raised here in the county, with eggs being raised here in the county as well. There will be a buyer’s reception with refreshments and registration staring at 6:00pm with the sale beginning at 7:00pm. During the reception, members plan to work educational exhibits on curing as well as judging eggs.

If you cannot make the sale but would still like to bid on a product, Mr. Cox has bid sheets and can be contacted at 304.462.7960. The Gilmer County FFA would like to invite everyone to attend this special event to reward members for their hard work and to help them re-start a local tradition.

Variety of Oaks Available from West Virginia State Tree Nursery

Few trees are as versatile and resilient as the mighty oak. Oaks come in a variety of species and sizes from the massive white oak with its majestic crown and high-quality lumber to the relatively small-growing English oak, a prolific acorn producer.

Clements State Tree Nursery, West Virginia’s only forest tree nursery, has six species of oak available this year for planting in spring of 2015. All trees are bare-root seedlings and are 1-2 years old. Seedlings are sold in bundles of 25. Prices depend on the number of seedlings ordered, and there is a 30% discount offered on orders of 5,000 or more. The nursery will accept orders through April 30, 2015.

Please note, because all oak species listed below grow to a mature height taller than 25-30 feet, they should never be planted under or near utility lines.

The Gilmer Free Press


White oak reaches a height of 100 feet or more. The white oak’s leaves turn red or brown in autumn and often stay attached to the tree in winter. It is a slow-growing tree and one of the most valuable timber trees in the state. White oak acorns are excellent mast for livestock and wildlife.

The red oak has a rounded crown that turns an eye-catching shade of red in the fall. Great as a shade or ornamental tree, red oak also is of commercial value and its wood is used in furniture, flooring, crossties and fence posts. Red oaks grow 75-100 feet tall.

Chestnut, Chinkapin and sawtooth oaks are medium-sized trees. Chestnut oaks grow 60 to 90 feet tall and are great for planting on rocky ridges. Chestnut oak lumber is used to make crossties and fence posts. Chinkapin oaks grow to a height of 70 to 80 feet and are highly valued for their excellent acorn production. Sawtooth oaks grow to heights of 40 to 60 feet and have a pyramidal shape.

English oak is a relatively small oak, usually growing 30-40 feet in height and width. It is an excellent acorn producer and likes well-drained soil and full sun.
