A lot goes into what we do here at Broadbent’s, and for that reason, we take great pride in what we do. So, when one of our customers, a company known as “Mantry”, recently wrote about the different bacons they have used and included us in a blog that was titled “The Best Mail-Order Bacon”, we were floored. Below is a snippet from their write-up that we felt described Broadbent’s Country Bacon perfectly. “A still sunrise, a mug of strong coffee, and the aroma of bacon crisping in cast...

This month, as we begin to ponder all that we are thankful for, I would like to highlight one thing that often gets taken for granted… I have been fortunate enough to make friends and acquaintances from all around the globe. I have heard life stories from individuals who have called some of our planet’s most nightmarish vistas home. I know a man who grew up in prosperity in Syria, before civil war wracked the country and he had to flee. People from the former Soviet Union where the...

So, I pulled out my copy of “The New American Roget’s College Thesaurus”, (the actual book), which I bought in the 1970’s.  I can’t tell you the date it was published, because the cover and front couple of pages are missing. Here’s what I found: “Delicious-  Adj.-  delectable, luscious, toothsome, palatable, savory.  See TASTE.”   I was familiar with all...

It’s all about the aging process here at Broadbent’s.  We age our Country Ham 6 to 18 months.  It’s been twenty years since Ronny and I purchased Broadbent’s.  The sale was final on April 1, 1999.  So while our hams have been aging, we’ve aged as well.  That’s right; it’s been 20 years since we began our lives as Broadbent’s Mom & Pop Business owners.  With two children of our own at the time, we certainly fit the bill! At the time of purchase, we knew the old-fashioned Country...

The snow and ice that we saw this weekend aren't uncommon for our area this time of year, so we have learned to prepare. Just like a squirrel with his acorns, we stash away goodies to tide us over until the thaw. Whether your mornings are crisp, or dreary, there is no better way to start a cold day than with...
