Meet Niman Ranch

Niman Ranch and its family farmers and ranchers raise livestock traditionally, humanely and sustainably.

Their animals are:

  • Raised on sustainable farms and ranches
  • Never given antibiotics or added hormones-Ever
  • fed 100% vegetarian feeds
  • Raised in accordance with the most humane handling protocols

Where is Niman Ranch?
Niman Ranch isn’t just one ranch. They are a community of 700 small, independent family farmers and ranchers in the Midwest – Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Missouri. Your purchase supports these farmers.

What is sustainability?
For Niman Ranch, sustainability is preserving the land and its resources, as well as the livelihood of the independent family farmers today and for future generations.

Are Niman Ranch meats organic?
No. While many of Niman Ranch farmers’ practices meet organic standards, it is much too cost prohibitive for them to require all 700 family farmers to be certified organic. Only about 5% of the corn and soybeans grown in the U.S. are organic and most of the is used for human consumption, making organic animal feed very expensive.
