Party Report: Nicky USA Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Friday, January 30, 2015

 

Nicky USA

Nicky USA's Geoff Latham with his mentor, Philippe Boulot of the Multnomah Athletic Club.

Party Report: In celebration of their 25th Anniversary, Nicky USA, held a private "happy hour" party at Jacobsen Salt Co. in Southeast Portland. It was a chance for Nicky USA to say thank you to all those in and out of the culinary community who helped them reach this timely milestone.

In 1990 Nicky USA began with one employee, Founder Geoff Latham, selling rabbit to top Portland chefs from the back of his Ford Escort.

Twenty five years later, Nicky USA has grown into the premiere butcher and purveyor of specialty game and high quality meats in the region, with 50 employees and 12 delivery trucks bringing product to the Pacific Northwest’s most talented and famous chefs.

Not only has the company grown, but has also purchased its own farm, launched its own line of quality meat under the Nicky Farms label for both restaurants and home cooks, and opened a second location in Seattle. Each year their signature event, Wild About Game, which takes place every fall as a showcase of specialty game—is a true celebration for the region’s chefs and food lovers.

For its 25th Anniversary, Nicky USA is host events all year long throughout Oregon and Washington to say “thank you” to customers and friends. 

One of those events will take place on June 27th. "Nicky Farms Dinner on the Farm" will have Nicky USA hosting a farm dinner on their ranch in Aurora, Ore., inviting the public to join chefs and longtime Nicky USA customers for an evening under the stars enjoying Nicky Farms meats cooked by top chefs, fine Oregon wine and local craft beer. 

Aside from hosting their own events, Nicky USA donates generously to a number of culinary events throughout the year at which their fine products can be tasted, such as Chefs Week PDX, Taste of the Nation, the International Pinot Noir Festival, Feast Portland, and many more.
