This artisan Texas Iberico® ham is aged for over 12 months and smoked over hickory wood. We cut this special ham into paper thin slices at La Tienda for you to savor at home. It is made with 100% Iberico pork from pigs pasture-raised in the Texas Hill Country that enjoy a diet of acorns, mesquite beans and prickly pear fruit.
Texas Iberico® live their entire lives outside 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.
