Nick’s Sticks: 100% Grass-fed Beef and Free-range Turkey

Nick makes snack sticks that start with 100% grass-fed beef and free-range turkey. Next comes a dash of organic seasoned salt, blended into his proprietary recipe. The result…the cleanest and best-tasting snack sticks you can find.  We refuse to use MSG, chemical nitrates, antibiotics, hormones, or gluten.  We were one of the first sticks on the market to not use sugar or red dye casings.

We currently offer 4 flavors of snack sticks.  The original flagship stick was our regular beef stick.  It took nearly 2 years to perfect the right stick.  Early test failure were too dry, too tough, too greasy, too salty, not enough salt…you get the idea.  We finally dialed in the right combinations and started selling sticks all across the country.  The second logical flavor was spicy.  I had tried spicy jerky and sticks that were too hot, the flavor was lost because the heat ruined the flavor.  To avoid making them too hot we decided on jalapeño instead of red pepper.  The jalapeño seems to bypass that intense heat on the tongue, thus allowing the flavor to develop in the mouth and around the taste buds.  We went with both jalapeño powder and chunks because we wanted to see and feel the texture of jalapeño.  We think it creates a nice balance for the spicy lovers and also doesn’t kill the mouth of the occasional spicy dabbler.

Next in line for our flavor experiment was using a friend of ours ground turkey.  He’s raising delicious birds out on real pasture and that flavor can’t be matched by a confinement bird.  We use the same recipe for both the original turkey and the spicy turkey and they instantly became popular for those looking to eat a variety of meat proteins.

Nick Wallace, Founder & Family

Nick’s Sticks is named for our founding farmer and visionary Nick Wallace. It’s his vision, passion, and hard work that brings our high-quality, grass-fed beef and free-range turkey snack sticks to your home.

Raised in a small Iowa community, Nick graduated from the University of Iowa before tackling a year of culinary training. In 1998, he added “cancer survivor” to his long list of accomplishments. His battle against lymphoma sparked his interest in natural foods and drove him to change the food culture in the country. Nick is a true pioneer within the grass-fed beef and nutrient-dense food movements and is passionate about producing only the highest-quality food products.

Cattle that thrive on green grass, sunshine, and free-range living. This is the whole philosophy behind Nick’s Sticks—a straightforward, uncomplicated food that nourishes your body and soul.


Why Grass-fed?

Not so many years ago, a majority of the beef in the United States was produced and finished by using grass exclusively. In fact, it wasn’t until the 1950s that large feed lots and grain-fed techniques became widely popular. The grain-fed movement spread very quickly and by the 1980s, large feed lots were responsible for producing nearly 100% of this country’s beef.

The nation’s switch to grain had a strong rationale. Grain-fed techniques have neutralized many of the unpredictable variables associated with raising cattle (favorable weather, green grass, and steady pricing in the market) and significantly streamlined the nation’s beef supply chain. However, several nutritional experts now believe that this migration to grain-fed beef was not in the best interest of our nation’s long-term health. For instance, rates of heart disease and obesity in the U.S. have increased significantly during the last four decades. Many researchers believe that the timing of these two events is more than a mere coincidence.

While still a niche movement, grass-fed beef production and consumption is making a comeback.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
