Elaborados Ocas Iglesias Adoption
By Pedro Jose Iglesias León
Support the Extremaduran farmer Pedro Jose with an adoption and receive part of his elaborations every 4 months at your home, a unique product from free-range geese fed with acorns in a natural way.
Pedro Jose will inform you monthly by mail about its good use and conservation, the exact origin, the history, elaboration methods, etc. You will also have the opportunity to personally meet your Artisan who will take you on a guided tour of his farm in Calzadilla de los Barros.
No strings attached and no extra costs. All logistical costs are included in the price.
What do you adopt?
With your adoption you are supporting a goose farmer who has decided to do things differently, raising his animals in freedom, without force-feeding and caring about animal welfare.
You are supporting a traditional farmer who has opted for innovation and together with his family has set up a goose farm in Calzadilla de los Barros, Extremadura, a region used by these birds as a resting area on their migrations but where there is no tradition of breeding this animal.
Pedro José decided to breed goose as a way of expanding the diversity of products of his land, the goose offers very interesting gastronomic possibilities, this combined with the livestock tradition of the area allows him to offer a unique product such as acorn-fed goose ham, a delight for the palate that has nothing to envy to the pata negra hams.
You support a family that despite the difficulties has decided to raise their animals in freedom, a process that has taken them more than 5 years of experiments and trials to adapt their farm and the animal to the Extremadura environment.
Due to this form of breeding, the animals are continually exercising and feeding on the farm’s own resources. The diet of Pedro Jose’s geese consists largely of acorns, figs and cereals, this healthy lifestyle makes the animal live happily and carefree and this results in a high quality, healthy meat with an incredible flavour profile.
In the quest to differentiate their product from the rest through animal welfare, one of the great struggles of this family has been to be able to have facilities on their farm for the entire production cycle of the goose, breeding, slaughtering and processing, which is very complicated under Spanish legislation. Integral facilities avoid having to subject the animals to stress and suffering during transport.
In short, by adopting Pedro Jose you are supporting a different way of doing things, innovating through tradition and respect for animal welfare, something particularly difficult to find in the goose industry. You are supporting a unique and surprising product that you will receive every four months at your doorstep.
What will you receive?
Every four months we will send you a box with:
1 x Acorn-fed Goose Ham (100g Vacuum-packed tray)
Handmade throughout the whole process, drying, curing, cutting and packaging. It is made from the magret of geese raised in the wild and fed with acorns that give it a flavour that differentiates it from any other similar product.
This jamon, whether as a starter or appetizer, makes the difference between a normal meal and an exquisite one that will surprise the rest of the guests. With a smooth texture and excellent quality, the marbling of the meat and the nutty tones of its flavour make it similar to the best Iberian hams.
1 x Natural Goose Pâté (100g Glass Jar)
Made from the liver and meat of the acorn-fed goose, goose pâté stands out for its great unctuousness, flavour and aromas that will make your dishes stand out for their quality and originality.

1 x Goose Rillete de Bellota (100g Glass jar)
Made from the shredded meat and different spices in the fat of the animal where it is cooked and preserved. A typical French preparation that stands out for its texture and the intense flavour provided by the natural feed based on acorns. Ideal for any occasion, this product can be enjoyed spread on bread rolls or toast or in dishes such as salads.
1 x Goose Cream with Fine Herbs (100g Glass jar)
Made from goose liver and meat accompanied by local herbs and spices. Magnificent appetizer perfect as a starter, where the fine herbs highlight and accompany the flavour of the acorn-fed goose.

What will you receive with your adoption?
Know about the Artisan
Coming from a farming family, Pedro Jose has revived this tradition by starting, together with his wife and son, a pioneering initiative in Extremadura, a free-range acorn-fed goose farm.
The path has not been easy and it has taken this family years of experimentation and improvement to adapt the free-range breeding of this animal to an environment where livestock farming is generally limited to pigs, cows and sheep.
With your adoption you are helping Pedro Jose to continue his incredible work, to produce a unique product in the world, goose foie micuit without force-feeding, and to continue expanding the culinary offerings of an environment that has so much to offer.
