This is another very rare cut of pork, it is not the pretties but it sure is tasty. Its shape is similar to that of a feather which is why it is named "pluma". It is fatty and marbled and it is one of the most desired and popular pork steaks in Spain.
WHAT MAKES JAMON IBERICO SPECIAL? WHERE IS IT SOURCED FROM?
To be called "Jamon Iberico" it must be from black iberian pigs and raised in Portugal or Spain.
This is particular piece comes from black pigs that are free range and fed on a grass and grain based diet.
Our Pluma comes from Iberico hobs raised in Spain, at Farm Vera Vieja which is located in Retamal de Llerena (Badajoz, Spain). This farm stretches over a vast and rich pasture which provides the highest quality acorns, grass and excellent grazing fields for its Iberico pigs. The farm is quite big and holds itself to the highest standards. All the pigs are then processed at El Navazo slaughterhouse which is the most modern and state-of- the-art meat processing facility in Europe
Many producers produce Jamon Iberico from pigs who live indoors most of their life. This is NOT the case. These jams come from pigs who roam freely their whole life and are fed a diet of grass and grain.
