Is your iberico pork box Iberico bellota or is it Campo/different grade?Updated a year ago

Our current Ibérico box comes from Ibérico pigs from Spain. Acorns are a seasonal fruit, which makes 100% acorn-fed pigs a seasonal item since they consume it exclusively during the fruit-bearing season of acorns. This is strictly regulated by the Spanish government.

With that being said, our Ibérico pork has a very nutrient-dense feed supplement. They have a similar fat profile to acorn-fed pigs because we aim to minimize corn intake and other nutty-based foods into their diet. The distinction in 100% acorn feed is really only noticeable on the cured meats after 2 years of aging, minimally on the fresh grilling meats.
