La Quercia is pulling out all the stops to make the 10th anniversary of its Prosciutto Americano truly unforgettable.

On September 12, 2015, La Quercia is hosting a party at the West End Architectural Salvage in Des Moines, IA with its community of farmers, customers, and friends to celebrate and say thanks for all of the support it has received over the past decade, according to an invitation notice.

Co-Founder Herb Eckhouse was eager to thank all those that have helped the company reach this milestone.

Herb Eckhouse, Co-Founder, La Quercia“For our family, making Prosciutto Americano was a huge risk and has been a huge personal effort,” said Eckhouse. “We are celebrating to show our appreciation to all those who have contributed to helping us make it to this milestone – eaters, customers, suppliers, colleagues.”

La Quercia makes handcrafted prosciutto using humanely raised pigs from family farms in the Midwest.
