Niman Ranch celebrates its more than 550 U.S. family hog farmers at its 15th Annual Hog Farmer Appreciation Dinner. Seven renowned chefs share their passion for humanely and sustainably raised pork by honoring the farmers who raise the animals at the annual celebration.
“Each of these chefs has shown a commitment to using humanely and sustainably raised pork in their restaurants,” said Paul Willis, Niman Ranch Pork Company founder and manager. “Our farmers take pride in raising hogs traditionally but often do not get to see how chefs use the pork on their menus, so we bring the restaurants to them.”
Over the next three weeks we will introduce you to each of these chefs.
