Bettella Tranquillo® 16-Month Aged Raw Ham
A ritual, an almost ancestral process, that of the Raw Ham Shavings, the best of the thigh and the entire animal. Only the finest Tranquillo® Pigs, who live up to 22-24 months and exceed 300 kg, are indeed, the chosen ones.
The size, as the name suggests, gives an extra-sized shaving, obtained after the first cut, the culatello. Not just a simple ham, then, but a choice array of flavors and fragrances, with a compact, homogeneous but delicate consistency, that knows how to carefully choose its companions for the long 12 months of rest that await it.

What is Tranquillo® Pork?
The "Tranquillo® Pork" is a concept that was born in the 1960s and refers to a particular type of pig farming that focuses on animal welfare, natural growth and quality feed. This approach contrasts with that of intensive farming, avoiding stress, poor living conditions and accelerated growth for the animal.
Tranquillo® pigs grow freely, outdoors, breathing clean air and are not subjected to any force that would allow "performing" growth in reduced times. On the contrary, its natural rhythm of development is respected: it takes two years for the meat to harden and the right layer of fat to develop. The goal is to reach 300 kg of weight with patience and attention, through the use of adequate spaces and careful genetic selection.
Feeding plays a key role in this process. The diet is mainly based on corn produced and dried directly by the company that raises the pigs. This allows for direct control over the quality of the food provided to the animals and contributes to enhancing the produced fat, which becomes a distinctive sign of the meat.
