What motivated you to start your business?
Our story began in a small Catalan region in Spain with a long-standing history of producing some of the region’s best dry-cured pork products. Known for combining traditional practices with the region’s finest ingredients La Garrotxa’s characteristics are considered among the best in the world.
At a young age, our founder, Esteve Espufia, realized that he too shared this passion of producing dry cured meats in the traditional way, and wanted to stake his place among the legends in La Garrotxa. He soon embarked on a journey to learn everything he could about the traditional dry-curing process.
Esteve began to handcraft sausages in small batches at his home in La Garrorxa, while also working with
experienced craftsmen throughout the region to further his knowledge of the traditional dry curing process.
Overtime, he expanded his range of experience with a variety of hand crafted dry cured sausages, learned the best spices and flavors to include, and went from being a beginner sausage maker to an expert.
Why did you choose to start your business in Fulton County?
