Luis Gil products are 100% Organic, and are made their own herd of pigs.
These pigs are bred in freedom at their large eco-farm called 'El Encinar de Ocon', located in a protected area of the Ocon Valley in La Rioja (Spain). All Luis Gil's pigs are thoroughbred animals, strong and healthy, and are adapted to the land, with the ability to live in freedom, permanently integrated with the environment. Their feed is completely natural, and includes acorns provided by Holm oaks the eco-farm produced during the last months of the year.
This diet is supplemented with organic, pesticide-free feed, which is rich in phytosanitary products and non-transgenic grains and oilseeds.
As a result, these products are of exceptional quality, very tasty, healthy, rich in protein, and guaranteed to be 100% natural.
Curing: 20 Months (minimum)
Presentation: Boned ham, individually vacuum-packed.
The Acorn-Fed Iberian Shoulders 'Reserva Montanera' (Boned) by Estirpe Negra, made the front limbs of prime Iberian Pigs, are skilfully hand-crafted using traditional methods. Only the very best Iberian pigs are selected, which are fed on acorns during the 'Montanera' (free-range) period on the vast expanses of 'Dehesas' (grazing pastures) found in Extremadura on the Iberian Peninsula (Spain).
