100% Iberico Bellota Ham is the king of Spanish gastronomy and also of our product range.
Made from 100% pure Iberico pigs, mamellado-lampiño breed, selected by our founder, after serious genetic studies, as the best for making 100% Iberico ham. The pigs live free roaming in the Dehesa (Acorn woods), feeding on natural products, specially the acorn, which is their main food during almost 4 months of “Montanera” (acorn season) that they enjoy, prior to slaughter.
The making of this ham is totally artisanal. The hams are cured for an average period of42 months in our drying cellars in the Hornachos (Extremadura) and Gata (Salamanca) areas. Constant follow-up of every piece helps to guarantee the quality and consistency of our hams.
