This artisan Texas Iberico® ham blends the rich traditions of Spanish Iberico and the legendary wide-open country of west Texas. The wild diet rich in acorns, mesquite beans and prickly pear adds a uniquely Texan flavor to Iberico pork as it ages over a year. The result is a silky-smooth ham with intensely complex flavor and meltingly rich flavor.

This whole Texas Iberico ham is the perfect centerpiece for your next party or family gathering. Cut thin slices and serve on a warm plate to bring out the full flavor and texture of this Texas jamón. Pour a glass of Rioja or maybe a chilled ranch water cocktail to enjoy it with.

Texas Iberico® pigs live their entire lives outdoors on the Trails End Ranch run by Ashly Martin, a third-generation rancher in Comfort, Texas. The wide-open ranchland is dotted with Texas live oak, mesquite trees and prickly pear cactus. The Iberico hogs live together, eating large quantities of acorns, herbs, sweet mesquite beans and prickly pear fruit. This uniquely Texan diet brings a complex flavor to the pork, perfect for excellent cured ham.

Texas Iberico® pigs are certified Animal Welfare Approved by the AGW organization, acknowledged by Consumer Reports as the only “highly meaningful” food label for farm animal welfare. They are never given antibiotics and they spend their whole lives outside.

A few years ago a herd of purebred Ibérico pigs was flown from Spain to America. The Texas Iberico® herd lives on the 1500-acre Trail's End Ranch in Texas, a similar landscape to the 'dehesa' forest of western Spain. The Ibérico pigs devour the acorns, as well as sweet mesquite beans and prickly pear fruit. Each of these fruits are full of nutrition and antioxidants that add a uniquely Texan flavor to the pork.
