Niman Ranch

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.

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.
