Niman Ranch Pork
Our hogs are raised on small, family farms in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states of the U.S. and are fed a 100% vegetarian diet. We NEVER use gestation crates or farrowing crates – EVER. We also never give them hormones or antibiotics – EVER, keeping both our hogs and your family happy.
Why Our Pork is Different
In order to consistently provide you with delicious, award-winning pork, we take meticulous care in raising our hogs.
We recently talked with Dr. Oz about the importance of knowing where your pork comes from.
We select hogs from a cross of heritage breeds including Duroc, Chester White, and Berkshire. This combination provides ideal characteristics to raise our hogs the traditional way, such as:
- Exceptional mothering for their young, which provides a nurturing environment.
- A natural hardiness for outdoor pasture-raising – their natural habitat.
- Extraordinary marbling, which contributes to juicy, tender pork.
We also believe the environment in which our hogs are raised is incredibly important. Our animals are raised outdoors or in deeply bedded pens where they are able to express their natural instinctive behaviors, like rooting and roaming.
We are proud of our pork program – superior genetics, high-quality diet, and strict raising protocols result in the unbelievably tender, juicy pork that chefs and home cooks love.
