La Quercia
La Quercia Acorn Tamworth Prosciutto

You are what you eat eats. These heritage breed Tamworth pigs feast on the oak and hickory-tree-covered bounty of the Ozark Mountains—their diet is about 60% acorns and wild forage. All those goodies make for an abundance of sweet, nutty, crazy-rich flavor in this prosciutto, which is lovingly cured for about three years. The color: deep coral. The texture: meltingly delicate. The flavor: full of depth and magic. Break out some sparkling Rosé, or a Manzanilla Sherry.

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.
