Lomo Ibérico de Bellota is a delicious, marbled cured meat sometimes prized even more than the famous Jamón Ibérico. It is a whole piece of acorn fed Ibérico pork loin seasoned with garlic, salt and paprika, then put in a casing and cured for three months. This extended curing intensifies the flavor and allows the spices to penetrate every part of the loin.
This lomo is made from free range, acorn fed Ibérico pork. Acorn fed "Bellota" grade pork comes from pigs that have enjoyed a happy life in the countryside of Spain, living under the stars, feasting on herbs, grasses and a lot of sweet acorns.
Dehesa Cordobesa is made by COVAP, based in the vast expanse of 'dehesa' rangeland north of Cordoba. This special environment is covered with holm oak and cork trees. The free range Ibérico pigs roam this ancient woodland eating grass and herbs. This special diet, along with lots of exercise, gives Ibérico meat its delicate flavor and a texture that melts in your mouth. The Ibérico industry preserves this magnificent landscape and noble breed by giving the land value and holding off modern development.
COVAP is a cooperative of 15,000 farmers and ranchers in the beautiful Valle de Pedroches. This valley was called Fahs al- Ballut by the Moorish rulers of ancient Spain, meaning "Valley of the Acorns". COVAP continues the tradition of sustainable, free range agriculture that has been practiced here for thousands of years.
To our knowledge, their combined herd is the largest group of free range pigs in the world. They share the 'dehesa' with sheep, goats and pigs, all sharing space on this ancient pastoral system.
