Montaraz only uses 100% pure-breed, acorn-fed Ibérico pigs that live free on the beautiful ‘dehesa’ countryside of western Spain. Bellota literally translates as acorn in Spanish. Ibérico pigs with bellota designation feast on acorns during the ‘montanera’ season when the trees produce huge amounts of sweet acorns. These privileged animals spend their days grazing the ‘dehesa’ rangeland, a primordial oak and cork forest that covers much of western Spain – each pig is allowed over 2 acres to forage.
