Niman Ranch is a community of more than 700 small, independent family farmers and ranchers. They offer the finest tasting all-natural meats raised by small independent family farmers and ranchers committed to sustainable and humane practices. All of the animals are:
· raised on sustainable farms and ranches
· never given antibiotics – ever
· never given added hormones – ever
· never fed animal by-products
· raised in accordance with the most humane animal handling protocols (available to the public on Niman Ranch Web site)

Pork:
· raised on pasture or in deeply bedded pens
· no gestation crates
· no farrowing crates
· fed a 100% vegetarian diet
· hogs are selected from a cross of heritage breeds including Chester Whites, Duroc and Berkshire. Combining these breeds provides ideal characteristics such as exceptional mothering and a hardiness that allows for pasture raising and extraordinary marbling
· high marbling scores provide juicer and more flavorful pork

Beef:
· Pasture raised and grain finished
· all cattle are genetically Angus (genotypic) other Angus program cattle qualify on hide color alones
· beef graded USDA choice or prime- averaging 25% prime

Joyce Farms are at the forefront of sustainable farming methods, humane raising practices, and above all else, some of the world’s best tasting poultry, game, and grass-fed beef.  They now produce something that had been lacking in the world of grass-fed beef: exceptional flavor and an abundance of marbling. Naked Beef was born, a grass-fed beef that beats out the best beef in any category. Now after 50 years, they’re fully dedicated to raising the very best all-natural meats for the top chefs, artisanal butchers, and discerning consumers across the US. Joyce Farms remains family-owned and operated, now a third-generation family run operation.

High Plains Bison is a red meat lover’s dream come true, featuring all the satisfying flavor without the downside. You can enjoy succulent steaks without the cholesterol, juicy burgers without the fat. With High Plains Bison you don’t have to compromise. Not on nutrition, not on health, not on ethics and especially not on taste. The products are all natural – no hormones, fillers, antibiotics or artificial ingredients. Just pure American bison. Raised by hand-selected ranchers that specialize in and understand the unique demands of raising bison and only bison on the High Plains where they were meant to roam. The herds are humanely raised and processed with the utmost care. All of the meat is 100% USDA certified and many cuts can even go so far as to claim to be American Heart Association certified.
