Ramon Jamon was a good pig in 2008, and he was an even better prosciutto in 2009! He started a tradition we carry forward every year with a pig at our villa. He has been followed by Jabba the Pig, Sumo the Pig, Bubba the Pig, and Gilligan the Pig... but it all started with Ramon. This is a fun little film, made in documentary/expose' style.
