La Quercia La Quercia

Herb and Kathy Eckhouse’s unparalleled Iowa pork house, La Quercia, is home to some of the finest cured meats in the world. They source old breed hogs raised to the highest levels of animal husbandry. You won’t find an ounce of hormones or antibiotics in these pigs, and they’ve all had room to root and roam. The pork is salted delicately so the cure features the flavor of the breed—from soft, sweet Tamworth pigs to big, bold Berkshire hogs. Herb and Kathy asked us to be the mail order source for their foods so we offer nearly everything they make.
