Why move to Smithfield? Lots of Ham, among other things:
World-renowned for country hams, Smithfield, Virginia's colonial seaport sets the stage for down-home charm on greater Chesapeake Bay. Smithfield is a town in Isle of Wight County with a small town feel that attracts many buyers to the area.
In an interview by Coastal Living, residents described the lifestyle in Smithfield, "Memorial Day to Labor Day, people gather at free Friday night concerts on the grass outside The Smithfield Times," says Rick Bodson, who moved here three years ago. "Everyone brings a picnic supper, and at intermission we all head to the ice-cream shop." His wife, Brenda Joyner, chimes in about the camaraderie: "You can practically stop cooking here," she says. "There are barbecue dinners, fish fries,baked-potato suppers, wine-tastings―something all the time to make money for a cause."
If you want to live somewhere with a real sense of community and historical charm with endless good eats, Smithfield may be the place for you.
