What do you adopt?
With your adoption you are supporting a traditional Spanish farmer who breeds 100% Iberian pigs through extensive farming where the animal lives in complete freedom in its natural habitat, the pasture.
Unlike intensive farming, where the animals remain locked up in stables or sheds their entire lives, extensive production is characterized by free mobility, which allows the animal to feed on fresh grasses and acorns that provide them with essential nutrients. Likewise, extensive livestock farming preserves and improves the landscape, preserves soils and enhances the biodiversity of species.
His farm “Los Carneros” is located in the Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche Natural Park, more specifically in the municipality of Hinojales. The total size of all plots exceeds 70 hectares and boasts some of the most fertile land in the area, providing the animals with plenty of grass to graze. This herb that they consume provides them with antioxidants such as vitamin E, which are very important in the healing and ripening of our products.
Its traditional products have received several national and international awards from world cuisine experts. Both in 2016 and 2022 they received the international Superior Taste Award with 3 Gold Stars by the International Taste Institute in Brussels.
Your adoption allows LA ULTIMA DEHESA to keep alive the Spanish tradition of raising 100% Iberian pigs in absolute freedom applying extensive farming techniques that protect the environment. In addition, with your adoption you help Antonio Jesús and Isabel to improve working conditions in rural areas since you allow them to obtain a fair price for their products thanks to the purchase at source from the producer.
What will you receive?
Every four months we will send you a box with:
2 x Jamón Ibérico 100% Acorn-Fed Black Label “Diamante Negro”. (Organic envelope of 100g).
“Diamante Negro” is the highest quality ham due to its longer maturation process, which takes around 4 years. Nice and juicy texture. Fresh and intense aroma of the meadow. The organoleptic notes that we find when tasting a freshly cut thin slice: hints of nuts and wild flowers.
2 x Paleta Ibérico 100% Acorn-Fed Black Label “Diamante Negro”. (Organic envelope of 100g).
The “Diamante Negro” Shoulder is cured for a minimum of 36 months, which gives it a pleasant and juicier texture due to the greater amount of fat. Fresh and intense aroma of the meadow. The organoleptic notes that we find when tasting a freshly cut thin slice: nuts and wild flowers.
1 x Caña de lomo Ibérico 100% Acorn-Fed Black Label. (Piece of approximately 500g).
Minimum cure of 7 months. When cut, the product presents a faint red color with infiltrations of marbled fat. Sweet aroma derived from paprika. Its flavor is pleasant and delicate, and its texture is juicy.

Know about the Artisan
Antonio Jesús and his wife Isabel founded LA ULTIMA DEHESA 10 years ago. Although they were clear about it long before, it was not until 2012 when they gave up the comfort of their jobs in the city to return to the town and give birth to this family project.
The road has not been easy. Undertaking in rural areas never is. When you create your own product you don’t just have to worry about the manufacturing, but about people trying it. Combining all this with your tasks as a farmer.
With your adoption you help Antonio Jesús to preserve the tradition of making black label 100% acorn-fed Iberian ham in Hinojales without having to compete or adapt to the rhythms of the large industrial producers.
