Iberico 100% bellota ham from pork raised in liberty and eating up to 9 kgs of acorn per day. When the pigs are 80/90 kgs the ”free range season” known as Montanera begins. It lasts from October to late February, during this time the pigs will eat 9 kgs of acorn and herbs every day, gaining 1 kg of fat and meat per day. By the end of the ”Montanera” in the pigs will be 180 kgs minimum. The pigs whose ham is considered Iberico Bellota are slaughtered between January and March (15 weeks).
Their excellent hams are cured for 4 years in natural cellars in Salamanca and knife cut by experts to guarantee the best slices, the best presentation of the plate and 100% profitability of the product.
Hand packed in a vacuum sealed glass jar, being respectful with the environment since the raising of the pork until the sale in the supermarket and avoiding the use of any kind of plastic. Among the numerous benefits of using glass instead of plastic, it is remarkable that plastic trays vacuum sealed press the ham which makes the fat migrate and melt, affecting the flavour and freshness of the ham, whereas the glass preserves the slices perfectly.
