WE ARE HISTORY
A livestock legacy: our greatest treasure
present and future
At Señorio de Montanera, we take our responsibility to care for our local traditions very seriously.
We have acquired a commitment to the gastronomic heritage of our lands: breeding and creating products from pure acorn-fed Iberian pigs. Our greatest legacy resides in preserving traditional livestock and ensuring the highest quality throughout the entire production process, from the very outset until achieving our very best Iberico Ham.
Señorio de Montanera is currently the leader in the production of pure Iberico Hams under the Dehesa de Extremadura Designation of Origin and is available in more than 25 countries around the world, with a significant presence in Japan, Korea, the United Kingdom, France and Canada.
Extremadura, Andalusia and Alentejo
Here, we find the slaughterhouse, cutting room, nine curing cellars carved into the rock, eight natural drying sheds in the upper floor, three salting chambers and sixteen post-salting cold rooms. It also houses the cured sausage factory, and three new drying sheds used exclusively for cured sausages, as well as a new cellar for slowly maturing them. In total, 240,000 Iberian ham and shoulder ham are produced and cured in the different rooms.
Our administrative offices and logistics centre are located in the capital of Badajoz.
We have more than 60,000 hectares of Dehesa, the last Mediterranean natural forest
