Three generations of artisan tradition

Juviles Hams is a family business with three generations making traditional artisans ham. Already in 1930 D. Jesus Ortega Ortega salted hams by hand, at home, for their own use and sale. In the sixties, he was joined by his son in law José Fernández Lara and salting hams began as a professional activity. To these two generations a third generation was added on, in the nineties, José Fernández Ortega, who continues to produce the hams like his grandfather and his father taught him, handmade and natural. Juviles Hams has been in constant evolution over the past decades and what is now our organization is due to the efforts of a family team, who has worked day to day, with optimism, energy and great enthusiasm, making the company a life project.
