The Nicholas brand was founded by George Nicholas in Sonoma, California in 1939. After twenty years of successfully marketing bronze turkeys, Nicholas revolutionized the commercial turkey industry by introducing the first white feathered broad-breasted turkey. The Nicholas tradition of innovation continues today through Aviagen Turkeys and the breeding program in Lewisburg, West Virginia. Nicholas turkeys still lead the industry because its pedigree turkeys are selected with the same innovation, care and attention to detail that George Nicholas started over seventy years ago. This balanced selection process ensures Nicholas turkeys deliver the best overall economic returns while meeting the strictest welfare guidelines. The Spirit of innovation lives on.
