The Ibérico Pig is an autochthonous breed of the Iberian Peninsula. Thousands of years of natural selection have allowed this pig to adapt perfectly to a life of freedom and to profit from the fruits that the lands and pasturelands yield like no other animal so that after countless months the most exquisite gourmet products can be obtained.
At BEHER our select pure Ibérico sows, which correspond to the prestigious Retinta variety, are registered in the Genealogical Book of the Ibérico Breed, as is likewise the case with our boars. Thus with these animals our production strictly adheres to the most demanding genealogical exigencies.
We breed the Ibérico pig in its natural habitat, promoting a long life, with the possibility of grazing and exercising under the most laudable healthy conditions, and also enjoying an exquisite and painstakingly cared-for diet.
Corn, barley, wheat, soy, grass and acorns are the essential natural ingredients that we combine in masterly fashion, resulting in a 14-16 month old animal that is healthy and fat (with an approximate weight of 160-180 kilograms), which we then take to Guijuelo so as to start producing the marvellous Bernardo Hernández products.
