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