1. What does 50% Iberian mean on an Acorn-fed Shoulder with the Red Tag?
They are acorn-fed shoulders that come from pigs where the mother is 100% of the Iberian breed and the father is 100% of another breed, usually Duroc.
2. What does the 75% Iberian value of an Acorn-fed Shoulder with the Red Tag mean?
They are acorn-fed shoulders that come from pigs where the mother is 100% Iberian and the father is crossbred (from a 100% Iberian mother and a 100% Duroc breed father).
3. What is the difference between acorn-fed Iberian hams and bait hams?
The acorn shoulders come from free-range pigs fed with resources from the Dehesa and acorns during the montanera season. They come from pigs that can be 50%, 75% or 100% Iberian breed.

The Iberian bait or field bait shoulders, on the other hand, come from 50% Iberian pigs fed with feed on farms or raised in freedom and fed with the natural resources of the pasture supplemented with feed in the case of field bait
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.
5. Why are acorn popsicles more expensive?
There are 2 reasons that influence the price of acorn popsicles:

1.) It is a product that comes from Iberian pigs, a breed that is smaller than others such as the Duroc breed. As the Iberian pig is smaller, its hams and shoulders have a lower yield and that always increases its price.

2.)Acorn-fed shoulders come from pigs that feed on acorns, and this natural food is only available during a few months of the year known as the montanera period.
