A MAN, SOME RABBITS & A FORD ESCORT
Nicky USA is the premier wholesale butcher & purveyor of specialty game & high quality meats in the Northwest. This year we are celebrating our 27th year in business. Owner Geoff Latham, a graduate of Oregon State University's Agricultural Business Management School, founded the business in 1990 and started out by selling rabbits from the back of his Ford Escort hatchback to a few eager chefs. Some of our earliest supporters included Philippe Boulot, Cathy Whims, Vitaly Paley and Greg Higgins, chefs who were all leaders in the local, seasonal farm to fork Northwest food movement.
We now have a team of 60 employees, including a full service USDA butchery & processing facility, and carry over 1000 items & cuts curated for the most discerning chef, food service and retail customers. While we still take great pride in the specialty game that we sell, we are a full-service meat distributor with great lines of beef, pork, chicken and lamb. In many cases we have multiple offerings of these items to suit any menu option and price point.
"Our goal is to provide the finest sustainably raised specialty game & high quality meats available to our customers. In doing so, we also strive to enhance the public's culinary education & excite their palates with exclusive and exceptional offerings. By sourcing and raising meats of such quality, we feel that we are not only helping to care for the land that sustains us, but furthermore, helping chefs & epicureans come as close to the farm as possible."
