La Quercia was the first company to offer salumi (dry cured meats) made with organic pork and purebred Berkshire pork. It offered the first organic prosciutto (La Quercia Prosciutto Green Label) and breed specific prosciutto (La Quercia Rossa Berkshire Prosciutto) available in the USA. Our Tamworth Country Cured Bacon is the only ready to eat, uncooked bacon in the USA, made with no nitrates or nitrite or vegetable substitutes.
La Quercia uses traditional dry curing—drying the meat to make it safe to age, so it doesn’t need nitrates, nitrites, vegetable substitutes, or any preservatives. Ingredients are either pork and sea salt or pork, sea salt and spices—nothing else.
It looks like they have good distribution. Here in NJ, they're represented in some Whole Foods stores, the Oldwick General Store, etc as well as Stone House in Warren, Berta's Chateau. In NYC, their meat is featured at Otto, A Voce, etc
