This Month's Lineup

Big IDEA Feature: Norm Small of Yummy's Catering Cowboy Cuisine 


Norm Small founded Yummy’s Catering Cowboy Cuisine in Merrill, Oregon in 1994 with his wife Virginia by his side. The couple originally came to the Klamath Basin in 1983 and worked in a self-employed capacity buying cattle for others and providing custom feed for clients. As the volatility of the cattle industry took a long-term toll on the family, it became clear to Norm that he needed to find something else. The seed of a catering business was planted and grew over time as the Small’s regularly cooked for 4-H fundraising events. They decided, not only was it fun, but they could make some money. The concept started as a side gig but success was at the door. They began providing their famed beef, chicken, potatoes, and green beans all over Klamath County and by 2005 they were consistently catering events in Jackson County. Yummy’s is now a regionally known name.+
