Nicky USA’s line of specialty meat and high quality game is now available at New Season’s Market under the “Nicky Farms” label. Elk, venison, locally raised rabbit, wild boar, goat, buffalo and a variety of game birds will now be available at all 13 New Seasons locations.
Since 1990 Nicky USA’s game and specialty meats have been featured at the best restaurants in the Northwest. With expanded distribution to New Season’s Market, home cooks will now have access to their unique offerings.
“Consumers are becoming more adventurous in their home kitchens,” says Nicky USA President Geoff Latham. “They want more than beef, chicken and pork, and we are growing to meet those demands.”
Game has historically been a mainstay of the American diet, and Nicky USA is excited to put game back on the center of the plate. Nicky USA has long worked to educate the public about its specialty meats through its annual culinary event, Wild About Game, and via its farm in Aurora, Ore., where the company currently raises rabbits, quail and goats for the Nicky Farms line.
Nicky Farms game birds and meats can be found in a variety of cuts in the freezer section, or behind the meat counter at New Seasons markets. The full line of offerings includes: rabbit, poussin, game hen, quail, Muscovy duck, pekin duck, venison, elk, wild boar, goat, and buffalo.
Founded in 1990, Nicky USA is the Northwest’s leading butcher and distributor of game birds and meats. The Portland-based company has forged relationships with local and international ranchers, as well as James Beard Award-winning chefs in an effort to make game a mainstay of specialty markets and fine restaurants. Nicky USA offers a specialty line of products called Nicky Farms, featuring Northwest raised rabbit, quail, elk, fallow venison, water buffalo, emu and American bison. With the recent purchase of a 30.9-acre farm in Aurora, Ore, owner Geoff Latham is now able to raise game for Nicky USA, host friends and customers, and guide hunts. Aside from selling meat and wild game, Nicky USA hosts Wild About Game – this year on September 7, 2014 – an annual Iron Chef-style cooking competition and festival promoting sustainably raised game birds and meats. Nicky USA recently opened a second location in Seattle, and orders can be made through nickyusa.com or by calling 1.800.469.4162.
