Free-Range Cebo Iberian Ham:

Our Iberian ham comes from pure-bred Iberian pigs raised in semi-wild conditions and fed on grain and pulse crops in pasturelands. The ham is produced using the best traditional, handmade methods. The hind legs of the Iberian pig are processed with salt and then undergo a very slow drying and maturing process which gives them the organoleptic typical texture and flavour. Curing time is 36 months. All this is done subject to the strictest quality controls.
