What we do
We just do the best we can.
- Organic production.
Our production system is organic, from the land management and animal husbandry to the elaboration of our products. We don’t adopt any conventional production line, as we are organic producers exclusively.
- Extensive/organic farming.
Extensive farming allows the animals to live freely in large plots of land. If besides this, it is also organic, animals will enjoy much more freedom.
Transgenics are forbidden in organic farming. The food has to be totally organic, animals are completely respected and the Earth is entirely protected. If we have a suitable stocking density, the contamination of water courses is prevented and the soil fertility is preserved.
Avoiding overcrowding, hygienic conditions improve and illnesses are almost nonexistent. In the event that they get sick, we use homeopathic and phytotherapeutic remedies, which offer excellent results.
One of the distinguished features of the organic production is the development of the indigenous breeds. Our pigs are one hundred per cent Iberian pigs (both the father and mother are Iberian pigs).
- Organic hams
Apart from jamón ibérico (Iberian ham), we also offer paletas (pork shoulder), lomos (pork loins), lomito de presa (beef loin), solomillo (sirloin), chorizo (hard pork sausage), salchichón (salami-type sausage) and other products derived from a 100% Iberian pig which are elaborated by our own company.
- Meadow and forests.
We have 700 hectares with some forest regeneration areas, which we reforest with native species in order to preserve the Mediterranean forest and maintain the continuation of the meadows.
The meadows are a good example of the balance between man and nature. For centuries, the human being has obtained resources from the Mediterranean forest without overexploiting it. In the meadows, domestic animals and human beings coexist together with a wide variety of wildlife. To preserve this coexistence, it is essential to maintain a suitable agricultural and livestock management. Without the meadows, the acorn-fed Iberian pig couldn’t exist, that is why we protect with particular interest this way of life.
The meadow comes from the Mediterranean forest and they together form the landscape where we live. Our activity affects it, so it is very important to understand our environment and act in accordance with it.
The Mediterranean forest is hardy and peaceful, it can resist extreme situations and turn scarcity into abundance. It provides the peasants with strength and elegance, just as it does with the holm oak.
