Nicky Farms: Raised by Ranchers. Coveted by Chefs.
Introducing Nicky Farms Jerky
Grass-Fed Oregon Bison & Water Buffalo 5 Spice
Nicky Farms is thrilled to introduce two flavors of premium jerky featuring two of our signature proteins. Our Nicky farms Water Buffalo 5 Spice is rich with the flavors of the classic Chinese spice mix, has a good hit of chile heat and a touch of tongue tingling Szechuan pepper. The Nicky Farms Oregon Grass-Fed Bison is seasoned with a kiss of smoke and sweetness for a traditional jerky flavor profile.
Our jerky is the perfect power protein snack for any occasion. Portable, convenient and most importantly delicious, our game jerky is competitively priced with traditional jerky proteins and an exceeptional value when compared to specialty or other game jerky. We are selling our jerky in a 3 oz. package for $8.50 each at our warehouse or $7.35 each when you buy a case. Suggested retail price for those who want to stock it is $10.99-$11.99 per pack. Consider that Patagonia is selling a grass-fed bison jerky at 2 oz. for $10.
The unique protein choices and flavor profiles of our jerkys are produced to appeal to consumers who appreciate a quality and healthful product that stands out from the crowd.
Nicky USA 25th Anniversary Video
A Look At Where We Came From & Where We Are Today
Has it really been 25 years? Hard to believe. It seems like yesterday that owner & founder Geoff Latham was selling just rabbits out of the back of his Ford Escort to a few intrepid chefs that were the beginning of the Portland food revolution. Join us for a look at a little at Nicky's history and where we are today serving hundreds of great customers across the Pacific Northwest.
Many thanks to the chefs, purveyors and Nicky staff for their time in the making of this video. Huge thanks to Nolan Video Works for their generosity and professionalism - if you want Portland's best videographer look no further.

Chef Carlo Lamagna Wins Wild About Game!
Good Time Was Had By All
Congratulations to Chef Carlo Lamagna of Clyde Common for taking the overall prize in Wild About Game. His dish of Nicky Farms Rabbit Arroz Caldo won the judges over for its creative & complete use of the rabbit, in addition to its well executed expression of Filipino comfort food.
