Why we’re declaring our ham independence

We declare our ham independence to honor not only La Quercia, fine purveyor of porcine goodness, but the farmers who put in long, hard days to raise beautiful animals that nourish us. We are privileged to live in a land of such bounty (yes, Arkansas!)and we give thanks for the ability to feed folks real food every day. So here's to our farmers for making it all possible! Without them, there would be no ham, no independence, and certainly no H.A.M.

Here at Marczyk's, we're pretty obsessed with pork. And no domestic producer is more obsess-worthy than La Quercia. Their dedication to quality and sustainability makes us proud to sling their prosciutto on a daily basis.

Why we’re declaring our ham independence

The traditional ham powers are slow to change. Cloistered in their European towers, the 1% of ham makers take us for granted. Well no more!! HAMARCHY!!! Ham by the American people, for the American people. And when they get a taste of beautiful American ham across the pond they WILL take notice. This independence day, march down to your local La Quercia ham provider and occupy the hell out of that place. Say it loud say it proud. HAMARCHY!!!

Why we’re declaring our ham independence

We declare for our white, red and blue! We declare for our white as the unctuous lipids that provide flavor of all-humbling fat. We declare for the red as the lean. The counterpoint and salty juxtaposition to the white. As for the blue... That is in our blood. To seek out and cling to the true, the classic, the undeniable! Great, and nothing less... VIVA la HAMINDEPENDENCE!!!

Why we’re declaring our ham independence

We love America and we love our friends that cure pork. It's silly that being such a grand country we are still the little guy when it comes to ham. Whether it's an amazing cured leg of pork from Iowa or some tasty smoked and cured pork from the hills in the south, we should all be celebrating the fact that America has some truly amazing pork products that rival the rest of the worlds offerings.

Why we’re declaring our ham independence

"One score (minus 11 years ago) Herb and Kathy Eckhouse brought forth on this continent a new Prosciuttificio, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all hogs are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great struggle, testing whether their prosciutto, or any American prosciutto so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure in a world of Spanish and Italian hams. We are met on a great battlefield of that struggle: the charcuterie case of your local cheese shop. We have come to dedicate a portion of that case as a monument to those American hams. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this case. The brave hogs who fill this case, whose hams we here enjoy, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what beautiful and complex flavors these American hams exhibit. It is for us the lovers of American hams, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who have cured these meats have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us- that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom, and that the patrons of this cheese shop shall enjoy the rights of Life, Liberty, and the Prosciutto of happiness." - Cheesemonger Bradley

Life, Limburger and the Prosciutto of happiness? But of course! Through trusted partners like La Quercia, our cheeselovers have gotten a greater appreciation for delicious ham that's sustainably produced....in the good ol' US of A. Thanks to Herb, Kathy and their hard-working ham-loving team, prosciutto has come a long way in this country, and we can hardly wait to see what's next.
