100% Fuente la Virgen is a pasture located in the mountains between North Sevilla and Hornachuelos which has an exclusive stockbreeding of pure bred iberian pig that produces this incredible high quality superham. With more than 50 years of livestock experience, Fuente la Virgen combines a careful management and selection of the pure bred Iberian pig (100% iberian mothers and fathers 100% or 75% Duroc fathers) with a natural and suitable environment for their breeding. The mix of holm oak, cork oak and gall oaks, which make up the pasture of Fuente la Virgen, allows the acorns begin to fall from mid October to mid February of the following year, thus ensuring the four month fattening period that are necessary for an Iberian pig to become in one of the healthiest and delicious products of the Spanish gastronomy: pure acorn fed Spanish ham.

The jamon iberico de cebo campo is produced from Iberian pigs born from Iberian breed pigs crossed with Duroc breed pigs.
These pigs are fed with natural grasses and some fallen acorns that they could find in Andalucía or Extremadura dehesas, besides their diet sometimes could include additional feed.
These Iberian pigs live in freedom in the Spanish fields, that´s why their legs have the classical slender shape, because the pigs are in good shape, they are continuously moving around the fields and aren´t just in a stable.
Lots of people ask us if it’s worth it to buy a jamon ibérico de cebo campo or a jamon ibérico de bellota (acorn-fed ham) and we always tell them that jamon ibérico de cebo is a savvy decision, because it´s a healthy product of high quality and limited price.
The jamón ibérico de bellota (acorn-fed ham) is the best jamon of our culture and gastronomy. And among the acorn-fed jamon, the best ones are the jamon iberico 100% Iberian breed, these hams are easily identified by their black labels and ribbons.
The jamon ibéricos de bellota with lower % of Iberian breed have red labels and ribbons.
Independently of the percentage of Iberian breed, the Iberian pigs that produce the jamon de bellota are fed with natural grasses and with acorn fallen in the dehesas during the montanera, the period of time that goes from approx. November to February, which is when pigs gain weight.
These pigs live in freedom in the dehesas, and that´s why their legs are so slender, because they are moving all the way looking for acorns. Due to this continuous physical activity the meat of the jamon has a dark red color and presents infiltrated fat which empowers even more its delicious taste.
Sincerely, if your Budget can afford it, buying a jamón ibérico de bellota is one of the most delicious things you can buy because of its incredible taste, smell and on top of is a very healthy food.
Slicing a whole bone-in jamon ibérico demands a Little effort from your side, but it´s also true that as soon as you start slicing the ham, immediately your friends and family come around you to see “your performance” although they mainly join you to start tasting it but also to bring you some wine glass or beer and even sometimes they help you!.
Buying sliced jamon ibérico artisanal sliced by the jamon maestros is a very intelligent option, because the ham is perfectly sliced and packaged in 100 grams envelops and it´s always ready to be served and tasted. You simply have to open the packs 30 min before enjoying the ham, and leaving them on a plate at room temperature to fully taste its flavor and aroma.
A tip that may be could help you is that when you take out the ham from the refrigerator it could be too cold to be served, we recommend you place some water drops in the dish, placed it only with the drops in the microwave to heat the dish and once it’s out of the microwave serve the ham in the dish, so it won´t be so cold, but if you can wait those 20-30 min before serving it will be even better.
A jamón ibérico weights around 7 - 8 kilos while a paleta ibérica weights approx. 4 -5 kilos, so on total a jamon iberico is more expensive than a same quality paleta, because the difference in weight.
The jamon ibérico correspond to the rear legs of the pigs while paletas ibéricas come from the front legs.
Regarding their quality, the jamon ibérico and the paleta ibérica have exactly the same quality, there´s no difference at all.
If you don´t eat very often the ham, then you rather buy a paleta ibérica, otherwise if you buy a jamon, the jamon will dry and become a Little too hard, if not we recommend you to buy a jamon.
But if you are considering buying sliced ham then you don´t have to worry for its conservation, you simply place it in the refrigerator, not the freezer.
It´s true that some people say that buying a jamón ibérico or paleta ibérica only depends on the time it´s going to take us eat it to avoid it becoming too dry and hard, because taste, flavor and quality are identical.
Nevertheless, we are sure you will make the right decision!
