Nicky Farms: Raised by Ranchers. Coveted by Chefs.
Nicky Farms-Lincoln 4th Annual Rabbit Dinner
Four Course Family-Style Dinner August 5th, 6:30pm
Food & Wine Best New Chef 2012 and author Jenn Louis, a long time Nicky USA favorite, is hosting the 4th annual Nicky Farms Rabbit Dinner at Lincoln Restaurant on Wednesday August 5th at 6:30pm. Along with husband and partner David Welch, Chef Louis has been a leading influence on the Portland dining scene with their restaurants, including Sunshine Tavern, and catering company Culinary Artistry. Now with her acclaimed new cookbook, Pasta By Hand, Chef Louis shares her passion for authentic Italian hand-shaped pastas (including gnocchi) and great local, seasonal products with the rest of the country.
The rabbit dinner celebrates a key point in Nicky history; rabbit was the first item owner Geoff Latham sold 25 years ago, and it also acknowledges the long-term relationship between Chef Louis and our company. Nicky USA now raises rabbits to supply our restaurant & retail customers at our very own Nicky Farms in Aurora, OR.
The dinner will be served family style and Chef Louis has created another stunning menu again this year:
Rabbit Liver Mousse & Butter Lettuce Panna Cotta
Grand Summer Vegetable Salad with Rabbit Saddle & Belly
Rabbit Tagine with Preserved Lemon & Green Olives
Carrot Cake (naturally!) with Cream Cheese Frosting & Meringue
Tickets are $65 (not including gratuity) and wine pairings are available for an additional fee. To make a reservation please call Lincoln Restaurant at (503) 288-6200. Check out their web site for more info lincolnpdx.com

Where The Buffalo Roam
New Batch of Nicky Farms Grass-Fed Bison is Here
We have just received eight of our signature Nicky Farms grass-fed bison and our Master Butcher and his crew are hard at work prepping them for delivery. Raised for Nicky Farms in eastern Oregon, these bison are truly exceptional in their flavor and nutritional profile. 100% grass-fed and never finished on corn or soy, Nicky Farms grass-fed bison is the perfect protein for the Paleo diet or for those who simply enjoy exceptional, locally raised meat. The meat is lean and has a depth of flavor not found in meat that is grain finished.
We have a wide range of cuts available - contact your Nicky USA Sales Rep for a full list, but act fast as items do sell out.
