About Ham Independence Week

Celebrating Life, Liberty and the Prosciutto of Happiness®

June 29, 2016 to July 4, 2016

This summer,  join La Quercia Cured Meats in the wackiest celebration of American dry cured ham around! Let’s revel in our independence, devour some delicious cured meats and make this the best week of the year.

Taste-making retailers across the country will be participating in this weeklong happening, with fantastic prosciutto sales, special tasting events, cured meat classes, and general mayhem. Participating shops will also compete for a whole Acorn Tamworth Prosciutto in a contest for the most creative and revolutionary display. You will have the chance to vote for your favorite display come Ham Independence week. See some shots of last year’s festivities here.

La Quercia’s Herb Eckhouse will be travelling around the country on the fourth annual Ham Independence Ride, rousing the troops, kissing babies, and feeding everyone acorn tamworth prosciutto. Check out an event near you here.
