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.


We are so proud to announce that we won a 2016 Good Food Award for our Speck AmericanoThe Good Food Awards grants awards to outstanding American food producers for products that are tasty, authentic and responsibly produced. Read more about them here. Hear Kathy's speech at the ceremony here
