3. What is the difference between acorn-fed Iberian hams and Cebo Iberian hams?
The acorn-fed Iberian hams come from free-range Iberian pigs fed with resources from the Dehesa and acorns during the montanera season. Cebo hams, on the other hand, also come from Iberian pigs but are fed with feed and intensively raised on farms.
4. What does the Iberian Montanera mean?
Also known as the fattening period, the montanera is the final phase in the raising of the Iberian pig in the wild where it feeds on the acorns of holm oaks and cork oaks from the pasture. The montanera period usually runs from October or November until March of the following year.
4. Why is acorn-fed ham more expensive?
Acorn-fed ham comes from Iberian pigs, a smaller breed than the duroc pig. As the Iberian pig is smaller, its hams and shoulders have a lower yield, which increases its price. Their diet based on acorns available only during one time of the year also influences the price.
