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

Nick’s Sticks, a Castleray company, has its roots firmly planted in the fertile soils of the rural Midwest. Founded in 2011, Nick’s Sticks was born out of a desire to provide quality, protein-rich, meat snacks – Naturally. Handcrafted locally in small batches, we have been able to craft a snack stick that is better for you and your family, without sacrificing flavor or taste. Try one and we think you will agree. As a pioneer in the grass-fed feed and nutrient-dense food movements, we are passionate about producing only the highest-quality food products, using the highest quality ingredients, or as we like to say, “All of the goodness – none of the garbage.”

Cattle thrive on lush, green grass, sunshine, and free-range living. Poultry grow and thrive best in a free-range atmosphere. This is the way nature had intended for them to grow. It also captures our approach as well. That is why we only use grass-fed free-range beef in our products, and free-range chicken and turkey. Straightforward, uncomplicated foods that nourish 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 feedlots and grain-fed techniques became widely popular. The grain-fed movement spread very quickly and by the 1980s, large feedlots 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.
