Welcome to La Quercia (La Kwair-cha). We make artisan cured meats or salumi — prosciutto, pancetta, coppa, speck, lomo, guanciale, and lardo. Seeking out the best ingredients, produced responsibly, we craft them by hand into something that expresses our appreciation for the beauty and bounty of Iowa.
