Special breed of pigs
They have a special breed of pig called the "Black Dala" which are quite rare in Norway. The breed originated from the "Old Typical pig" which is a specifically mixed bred pig.
On the mountain pastures and in the forest, these pigs live in their natural habitat. They get strong back and thigh muscles due to the relatively steep terrain and with so much exercise they eat a lot of organic foods including grass, heather, berries and roots. The ham is often compared to Spanish "Pata Negra".
