Niman Ranch works with fewer than a dozen ranching families, most of whom have raised livestock for multiple generations. These ranchers raise lamb in different regions based on the availability of that particular regions seasonal grasses. Having seasonal-specific growing regions allows us to bring young lamb to market year round. All Niman Ranch lamb are raised on pasture and then fed a high quality grain and roughage diet or graze on alfalfa for finishing. The young age of our lamb, coupled with their low stress environment and high quality, 100% vegetarian diet, ensure that all Niman Ranch lamb has a mellow flavor that’s never gamy.
