Christmas hams – it’s time to order!

A locally-made Christmas ham makes a fantastic thank you gift for your valued staff and customers, or the delicious centrepiece for your festive celebrations with friends and family. Christmas ham Wanaka

We make our own Christmas hams right here in Wanaka the traditional way. We use premium pork legs sourced from two premium South Island suppliers – the good free-range folk at Havoc Pork, or the free-farming specialists at Apple Tree Farms. Each ham is honey-cured and hung to smoke over manuka chips in our smoker, then slow cooked to keep it perfectly succulent.

If your business is buying your valued staff or customers a thank you gift this Christmas, how about a Christmas ham from The Butcher’s Block and Smokehouse? Email us today on to receive our corporate pricing information. Orders received before 30 November have the best pricing. Corporate ham orders must be paid for and collected by 20 December.

If you’d like to order a Christmas ham to celebrate with family and friends, simply place an order next time you’re in the shop. Let us know if you’d like a whole or half ham, free-range (Havoc) or regular (Apple Tree). If you’re not in Wanaka until Christmas, you’re also welcome to email or call (03) 443-5017 to order your ham.

Make your Christmas preparation easier and pre-order the other meats you’ll want to feed everyone over the Christmas / New Year period. Steaks, lamb backstraps, sausages, bacon, turkeys, rolled pork roasts and lamb legs are among the favourites. We can have your whole order, including your ham, ready to pick up on your preferred date.

We’ll be open right through the weekends before Christmas and New Year, and just closed for the statutory holiday days.
