About Us

The Country Store in Pennsdale, PA was built in '39—that is 1839. Today, the Country Store is bright red, like the cheeks of the people who bustle in and out on a crisp wintry day to buy some of its famous Country Cured and Smoked Meats. Even though many years have passed, the Country Store's smoked meats are still cured and smoked the honest-to-goodness old-fashioned way. Specially selected hams are cured then naturally smoked to give you that succulent, delicate, gourmet flavor, unlike any other you've tasted. We believe that our government inspected products are the best available. It is the commitment to quality that has kept people coming back year after year.

In 1905, the Country Store was purchased by John A. Springman and operated as a General Store, selling dry goods, sundries, and much more. After World War II, John Springman’s boy, Thomas L. Springman came home and began working at the Country Store. The Country Store was not only a general store at the time, but was the home of the Pennsdale Post Office in which Thomas L. was the Postmaster. With the Pennsdale Post Office in place, the Country Store's mail order business had its beginnings in the early 1980's when a doctor from Albuquerque, New Mexico was passing through the quaint Quaker village of Pennsdale, and got hooked on Country Store's famous smoked and cured products. Nearly two decades later, the Country Store in Pennsdale continues to ship our famous smoked meats all over the Country. The Country Store has been family owned and operated for four generations, and still carries the tradition of excellent service and superior quality since its beginning nearly 100 years ago. We would truly like to thank you for your patronage, and we hope you visit us again soon.

Yours Truly,

Thomas M. Springman II, Owner
