Nicky Farms: Raised by Ranchers. Coveted by Chefs.
About Nicky Farms
Nicky Farms is focused on bringing chefs and epicureans authentically American meats like rabbit, quail, fallow venison, Northwest elk, water buffalo, emu and bison. From a group of family-owned, sustainable farms and ranches across the Northwest come the finest offering of natural game birds and animals produced anywhere.
To ensure our high standard in all categories, at Nicky Farms we are involved in every facet of the process, from farmers' husbandry practices to packaging and through delivery, our customers can always expect the best. Because we actually respect the unique concerns our chefs have, we welcome special requests. At Nicky Farms, we are able to customize our cuts for signature dishes or special events. Our customers are always able to count on our assistance for planning seasonal menus and individualized menu offerings.
Just a few generations ago wild game was the largest part of the average american diet. We lost this vital connection to the land, as the move to city living meant relying on corporately owned factory farms. Domesticated and easily produced choices for meat selections quickly became limited to beef, pork and chicken consumption.
Fortunately there is a renewed and growing interest in wild game birds and animals. Educated "locavores" and true gourmands alike are demanding more choices, especially in regions particularly suited for raising delectable and indigenous game.
Game is a healthier choice than commercially raised beef, pork and lamb. Naturally lower in fat and cholesterol, ranch raised meats do not exhibit the gamier flavor characteristics because the animals graze stress free and are harvested gently.
