Why Humane Animal Care

Since the company’s founding nearly 50 years ago, Niman Ranch livestock have been humanely raised according to the strictest animal handling protocols. This is better for the farmers and the animals and is an essential ingredient in our recipe to produce the finest tasting meat.
