Nicky Farms: Raised by Ranchers. Coveted by Chefs.
Feast On These Savings
In honor of Feast Portland we have assembled an incredible collection of products for the latest addition of our freezer specials list. Tails & Trotters hazelnut-finished pork hocks are a fantastic addition to soups or stews, and of course love a good hang out in the smoker. Nicky's meatloaf blend has great flavor from the beef chuck and brisket, with just a touch of pork fat to ensure a moist, succulent loaf. It also is great as a bruger. If you haven't tried Creekstone Farms beef yet, this is a great opportunity to get started. These Master Chef Prime flat iron steaks are full flavored, well marbled and extremely tender. Don't pass up the opportunity for a tailgate winner in the Beef Nacho sausages - a sure hit for football season.

Slide Into Some Savings
Ribs, Butts, Birds, and More
Don't put away the grill just yet. This addition of our freezer specials offers some fantastic cuts for late summer BBQ, as well as a great choice for an early fall braise. The Kobe beef sliders are a steal at $5.99/lb and will move quickly, so if you're thinking about putting them on your menu don't hesitate. The flanken beef ribs are perfect for a quick Korean-style BBQ dish. If you are already thinking fall give the Tails & trotters osso bucos a shot. Rich and meaty, these shank slices take well to any manner of seasonings and yield a fork tender final dish at a great price. Give us a call, send us a singing telegram, or whatever is your preferred communication method, just get in touch before these deals are sold out.
Nicky Farms Presents The Chef Beer Series
A Gilgamesh Brewing Partnership Benefiting The Portland Kitchen
Chefs and brewers are cut from the same cloth – they both work with the best ingredients, including local and seasonal items, to create a personal style reflected in their dishes and beers. Bringing the two parties together was a no brainer, especially when the results would benefit a local non-profit. Gilgamesh Brewing had tremendous success with their Terry Porter beer, raising over $50,000 for the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and Portland chefs' generosity is renown in the culinary industry. All they needed was an introduction…
