MORE THAN A MEAT COMPANY
While selling meat is our primary business at Nicky USA, we also strive to reach beyond the traditional sales relationship with our customers & community. We actively support and promote our chef, industry and retail partners at numerous events and fund-raisers including the annual Wetlands & Wellies event benefiting The Wetlands Conservancy and the raffle at our signature event, Wild About Game. We have also taught butchery classes and supported culinary programs for youth groups to promote careers in the food industry.
We are proud to work with Growing Gardens as our cornerstone non-profit partner to support their mission to reduce hunger and transform lives through gardening and growing your own food. We have worked to raise funds and awareness for this great organization through various methods including in-kind meat donations, their Chef in my Garden dinner series, and our Chef Beer Series with Gilgamesh Brewing. In 2017, with the support of generous restaurant, retail and vendor partners we have helped raised over $10,000 for Growing Gardens.
We also sponsor the Fare Start program in Seattle, an organization that works for a real solution to some of our society's most pressing challenges—homelessness, joblessness, poverty and hunger. They help people transform their lives, create value for the community, and offer a way for everyone to play a role doing something that matters.
Nicky USA is also proud to support High Performance Rugby and Rugby Oregon. The mission of High Performance Rugby to continue to improve players’ skills and achieve excellence matches perfectly with our company’s goals to continually strive to be leaders in our industry.
Nicky USA owner Geoff Latham has been involved with rugby since his college days when he played with the club team at Oregon State and has always championed the growth and advancement of the sport. Both of his sons share his passion for the sport, and his youngest son is now involved with Rugby Oregon and Geoff is active in coaching his team. At Nicky USA we believe rugby exemplifies the best values of sport & life - teamwork, honor, integrity, strength, service, and family. We look forward to a long partnership with Rugby Oregon and helping to support and grow a sport we love.
