La Quercia Cured Meats

Norwalk, Iowa

La Quercia was started by Herb and Kathy Eckhouse to create premium quality American prosciutto - a passion that grew after three and a half years living in Parma, Italy in the late 1980s.  Inspired by the bounty available in their home region of Iowa, they started curing hams in their Des Moines basement. Ten years later they still salt, turn and trim each piece by hand in their Norwalk, Iowa aging facility.  All products are fully dry cured and ready to eat.  The products contain only pork, sea salt, and organic spices in a few varieties.  No nitrates, nitrites or substitutes are used in the whole muscle meats.  The majority of the meat used comes from within 200 miles of the La Quercia aging rooms from farms that raise their animals humanely without sub-therapeutic antibiotics.
