Many pork producers are working to modify their operations to comply with the new state law, but Niman Ranch pork has met or exceeded the requirements of Prop 12 in its farms across the country since the company first offered pork to customers in 1995.
Niman Ranch and its network of U.S. family farmers and ranchers raise livestock humanely and sustainably to deliver the finest tasting meat in the world. They like to say that animal’s quality of life leads to quality of product.
Niman Ranch History
Niman Ranch is a familiar name in Northern California, where the company started in the early 1970s on a family-owned cattle ranch in Bolinas, CA, a small coastal town just north of San Francisco. Back then, their cattle were Raised with Care® using traditional, humane methods with wholesome, all-natural feeds – the same way they are raised today. The buzz about their great tasting beef spread quickly and, before long, their burgers and steaks became favorites in local grocery stores and popular San Francisco Bay area restaurants.
In 1995, they expanded to raising hogs when they met farmer Paul Willis of Thornton, Iowa. At the time, Paul was busy revitalizing sustainable hog farming methods in the Midwest, moving away from the common industrial practices. His dedication to animal welfare and stewardship of the land closely matched Niman Ranch’s stringent principles. A partnership was quickly formed, allowing them to proudly offer a variety of proteins.
Today, the Niman Ranch network includes more than 740 family farmers and ranchers throughout the country. Whether they’re raising hogs, cattle or lamb, they all share their commitment to raising livestock under strict protocols and the belief that humane and sustainable methods produce the best possible flavor.
Their many years in the industry have provided them with the expertise to produce great tasting meat, authentically and consciously, by caring for their animals, the land and their farmers.
The Niman Ranch mission is earnest: We raise livestock traditionally, humanely and sustainably to produce the finest tasting meat in the world.
