About The Producer

Calef's Country Store

Calef’s Country Store

Established in 1869, Calef's has been "buying local" since Ulysses S. Grant was president.

In 1869, just after the Civil War, Mary Chesley Calef mortgaged her family farm and pledged her savings to open Calef’s Store in the front rooms of her modest home in Barrington NH. Five generations of the Calef family operated Calef’s Big Store until the 1990’s, including Mary’s son Senator Austin Calef. Today the traditions endure as Calef’s Country Store serves the local community as well as visitors from afar. We still pump our own molasses and honey, cheese is aged in our cooler, and our smoked Ham is mouthwatering.

Walk through our doors today and take a step back to a simpler time, when customer service wasn’t a gimmick, but the way things were done.

The wood floors creak with stories of lore, our wood stove warms passersby, the aroma of fresh baked breads and donuts entice even the healthiest of folks.

Jar after jar of penny candy tempts young and old alike.

Our Calef’s brand old fashioned jams, jellies, pickle items, bread and soup mixes offer something for everyone.

The wooden pickle barrel is still a focal point in the store. Our Ginger Snaps are renowned for their bite.

Next time you visit New Hampshire, stop by and pay us a visit, you’ll be glad you did. Store hours and directions.

Best & Juiciest Ham

It was delivered quickly, with cold packs inside and directions for cooking. The ham was easy to bake, juicy and succulent. Much better and less expensive than a honey-baked ham! I have not yet been to their country store, but I plan to go there in the future! Great quality and enough to feed a large group of people!

Best ham ever!

I say that every year. Honestly, no ham ever compares with Calef's. Only seasoned with whole cloves, it was tender, juicy and flavorful.

Best Ham ever

My family anticipates our Easter dinner every year because Calef's ham is the star of our meal. This ham is the tastiest, juiciest ham ever.

Great Easter Ham

Got an 18lb. whole ham for Easter. Cooked perfectly and came out nice and moist, not salty, no waste. Leftovers are great too, omelets, ham souffle and of course a very tasty split pea soup. Ham-tastic!!
