It is in 1958 when Pedro Martín Garcia begins to open a new line of business, where he was the sole owner. This stage of tradition and know-how passed into the hands of his daughter Mª Dolores in 1984. Since then Mª Dolores runs the family business preserving the artisanal elaboration of Iberian ham from Ledrada as it was instilled in her by her father.

Iberian ham from Ledrada (Salamanca)
Located at the foot of the Sierra de Bejar, Ledrada is a municipality dedicated exclusively to the production of Iberian ham and sausage. A landscape that combines mountain with meadows of holm oaks and cork oaks. Its climate of long dry and cold winters, and short and mild summers, make it an ideal enclave for the natural curing of Iberian Ham. A very important climatic factor is the altitude of 880m above sea level and its environment allows it to remain free of fogs during the winter, since these indicate negatively in the natural curing of ham and Iberian shoulder.
With just over 500 registered inhabitants, Ledrada has 7 factories of ham, shoulder and Iberian sausage. A municipality dedicated body and soul to Iberian ham.
As it can not be less, Ledrada has a holiday dedicated to the elaboration of Iberian products that gives it so much fame. Every year, on a Sunday in February, the municipality recreates the traditional typical slaughter, where they teach all visitors how our grandparents made the products that today serve as sustenance. Therefore, the Martín family invites you not to miss this unique and very illustrative event of how these products were made.
