For that reason the consumption of Iberico Ribs are essential for kids during their growth stage and keep good health for adults.

History – Lineage

The Ibérico pig, commonly known as “pata negra” is the direct descendant of the wild boars who roam the Mediterranean. Today it is only found in the Iberian peninsula. These free-range pigs that roam oak forests (called Dehesa), feed on a diet of acorns and other indigenous plants. This rich, natural diet gives the meat an unsurpassed taste and quality recognised around the world.

At Farm To Plate, we are proud to say that our Ibérico ribs are 100% Ibérico bellota.
