Only the best Iberian pigs are bred in the best dehesa fields
Our starting point is a unique raw material, bred exclusively for Arturo Sánchez by real experts.
We select the pigs in accordance with our requirements in terms of breed, age and food. We know what we want and we work exclusively with breeders who we trust completely, in the best dehesa fields to the north of Seville and in the south of Extremadura. They are true experts in the breeding of the Iberian pig and, just like us, they are passionate about what they do. They are in the dehesa fields from dusk till dawn, keeping an eye on our animals so that they are properly fed while developing freely.
We are the only ones who wait, year after year, until our acorn-fed, 100% Iberian pigs reach two years of age and, therefore, have been fed with acorn for two seasons instead of just one. Thus we get pigs with fully developed muscle and bone mass, with healthy fat infiltration in the muscle, which provides a level of oleic acid only surpassed by olive oil.
“We are different from the very start: our pigs are twice the age and have had two acorn-fed seasons.”
We are what we eat.
Us and them. That’s why, after picking the best animals, we keep a close eye on what they eat. Their food, the acorns just fallen from holm oaks and cork oaks during two long seasons, give a far superior quality to all our products.
The combination of the 100% pure Iberian breed, the age (practically twice the standard in the sector) and an acorn-based feed during two long seasons, results in a unique quality of meat and infiltrated fat. This is the base for the production of our Iberian products, unique among Iberian products, because we are different from the very start.
