Our 100 % Iberico breed pigs are raised on the Trail's End Ranch in the Texas Hill Country by rancher Ashly Martin. They spend their days roaming freely, eating acorns, grass, herbs, sweet mesquite beans, prickly pear fruit and any other goodies they can find. Their diet infuses the pork with intense flavor, and plentiful exercise means the pork is marbled with flavorful fat, perfect for making delicious cured meats.
These extraordinary pigs trace their lineage back to the time of the cavemen and are particularly suited for outdoor living. The cerdo Ibérico (Iberian pig) has a different genetic makeup than industrial pigs. These animals transform their diet – acorns, fresh grass, mesquite beans and prickly pear fruit – into heart-healthy fats much like extra virgin olive oil. That’s how Iberico pigs got the nickname "four-legged olive trees." Breeding stock was flown in from Spain in 2013 and our herd has 6 different strains of Iberico, providing vigorous genetic variation and a healthy herd..
With an active lifestyle and exceptional genetic characteristics, Iberico pigs produce some of the healthiest meat available anywhere. Texas Iberico® pasture-raised pigs are never given antibiotics and our pork is Animal Welfare Approved, acknowledged by Consumer Reports as the only “highly meaningful” food label for farm animal welfare.
Our Artisan curemasters are passionate about New World Charcuterie. The result is a unique and refined line of cured meats that reflect the marriage of an ancient breed with a new approach to building flavor and unprecedented salami for the soul.
