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.


Prosciutto Americano turns 10 this September! To celebrate and say thank you for the incredible support of our community of farmers, customers, and friends, we're having a party and hope you will be there. Sept 12th, 2015, from 6pm-11pm at the West End Architectural Salvage in Des Moines. FULL INVITE HERE. BUY TICKETS HERE.
**100% of the proceeds of this event will be donated to United Way of Central Iowa early childhood education programs.  With your participation, more children will enter kindergarten ready to learn and succeed in school and life. If you can't attend, but would like to donate, follow this link.
