Carrasco was created in 1895, by Franciso Carrasco, in the province of Salamanca, in Spain. They are the producer with the longest history in one of the 4 major Iberico Ham producing designation, Guijelo. It is with Juan Atanasio Carrasco and his brothers that the story really started, when they bought a farm to raise lberian pigs and built a slaughterhouse in Guijuelo. 20 years later, in 1970, the third generation continued the family business’ goal to establish their production as a quality pork ham, specific to its area of origin and obtained the certification “DOP”.

Considered as the finest ham in the world, Iberico ham is no doubt the pride of Spain. Iberico De Bellota, namely the acorn-fed variety of Iberico Ham is said to be the best ham in the world. During the autumn the pigs feast on acorns (or bellotas) from the holm oak and cork trees, resulting into most part of its fat mono-unsaturated and earns it the name of “olive trees on 4 legs” because their fat is nearly as healthy as extra virgin olive oil.
