MEAT, GREET, AND SKEET
The Grand Opening of Nicky Farm
On June 30th we introduced the Nicky farm to our customers and friends. As part of the celebration, chefs shot shotguns, archery, and muskets in a demonstration from Oregon Fish and Wildlife; and enjoyed a barbecue, lawn games, sunning by the river, and a bonfire.
At the farm opening chefs were intorduced to shotguns, muskets and bows and arrows. This portion of the event was born out of the mutual goals of Nicky USA and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to get chefs closer to their food source and help bridge the urban (chef)/rural (farmer/hunter) divide. Nicky USA has a 24 year history of connecting chefs with local farms, and has been a long supporter of game hunting in the Northwest. For many hunters, accustomed to the flavors of Venison, Elk, Pheasant etc. Nicky USA has been a place to source game meat outside of the hunt.
While many chefs have been connected to the provenance of their heirloom tomatoes and summer berries; our farm, it is our intent to connect chefs more deeply with the source of their protein. Our farm opening also an opportunity for Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to reintroduce the outdoors to a new demographic of foodies who would like to learn to hunt and fish. We hope this is just the first of many adventures on the farm for our customers and friends.
