La Quercia
Acorn Tamworth Coppa

Pigs must be flying, because this meat comes straight from heaven. Sweet caramelly notes and smooth ribbons of luscious fat infuse this collar cut with deep, silky flavor that melts like a slice of cloud nine on your tongue. Tamworth pigs are characterized by their bristly red hair and bulky build, which translates into meat that’s golden, tender and perfect for bacon. The meat maestros at La Quercia saw more than one horizon, so didn’t stop with their crazy good Tamworth Bacon; they’ve gone in several delicious directions. Raised in the Ozark Mountains on family-run farms, these ruddy hogs spend their last three months foraging the foothills and dining on acorns and hickory nuts. The coppa makes a great companion to mellow sheepy tommes like Ossau-Iraty Vielle or grassy cheddars like Cabot Clothbound or Montgomery’s. Add a glass of Pinot Noir to get the mood just right.

Meet The Maker

How did a family in Norwalk, Iowa come to produce some of the best cured meats in the world? It started with tradition: After three and a half years in Parma, Italy, Herb and Kathy Eckhouse brought classic techniques back home to create their signature salumi, something they say “expresses our appreciation for the beauty and bounty of Iowa”. Adding responsible sourcing and sustainability to the recipe means that their products don’t just taste great, they’re also produced with the highest standards and best quality ingredients around.

To help more people get a bite of the good stuff, we now offer the full La Quercia line as well as curated selections that will make any meat lover squeal with delight.
