Bizarre Foods at Nicky USA
Andrew Zimmern and Bizarre Foods Visits PDX
We were honored to be featured in the Portland Episode of Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre foods. Zimmern followed a locally raised Nicky Farms Roosevelt Elk from our butcher shop to the kitchen at Lincoln. You can catch reruns on the Travel Channel, or check out stills from the episode, and Zimmern's top 5 moments on their website.
Fresh Local Buffalo Now Available
It Only Happens Once a Year
It only happens once a year, American buffalo (bison) raised in Enterprise, OR arrives. While most of our local game shows up in the fall, these grass-fed bison take longer to reach optimal size. The fresh buffalo is available now. Call your sales rep to purchase your desired cuts before they sell out.
Some Beautiful Meat
100% Wagyu from Magnolia Cattle Company
We are now selling full blood Wagyu—the best available beef from Japanese genetics. This beef differs from other beef including “American Style Kobe” because of it’s pure and verified Japanese heritage. The intense marbling and high percentage of unsaturated fat in this beef can only be achieved with a 100% Japanese bloodline. While the beef is not raised in Japan, it comes from the same animals that made Kobe, Mishima, Omi and Sandar synonymous with top quality.
Nicky USA’s full blood Wagyu are raised by Magnolia Cattle Company—a small farm in Bothell, WA where owner George Neffner III emulates techniques used by Japanese ranchers. More importantly however, the cattle have 100% Japanese genetics, which have been certified for five generations. The cattle are not crossed with American breeds like Angus as is“American Style Kobe”.
We have purchased two steers and our master butcher, Jace Hentges, has cut the beef to order for anxious chefs who have preordered their desired cuts. You will be able to find the precious cuts at Altura in Seattle, Urban Farmer, Paley’s Place, and Serratto in Portland, and a handful of other restaurants across the Northwest. Nicky USA plans to continue this relationship with Magnolia Cattle Company to make this high quality meat more available to our customers.
