A Canadian company has purchased a New Hampshire pork products producer, but the company says the sale shouldn’t affect the 35 jobs at its facility in Claremont.

Bacon makes up 80 percent of North Country Smokehouse’s business, but it also puts out some sausage, ham, and smoked cheeses. According to the company’s president, Mike Satzow, it gets much of their pork from a Canadian company that’s buying them, Les Spécialités Prodal.

Civil War-Era Claremont Building Up For Auction

A Civil War-era building in Claremont is up for auction.

The 11,000-square-foot Oscar Brown Block was bought from Maine Street Claremont in 2007 by the Monadnock Economic Development Corporation. Renovations were done to the building, and today it houses a restaurant and a barbershop.

Financial troubles including a default on a loan led to the building being put up for sale in December.

The auction was scheduled for Monday.
