Niman Ranch selects hogs from a cross of heritage breeds including Duroc, Chester White and Berkshire. This combination provides ideal characteristics to raise our hogs the traditional way. We also believe the environment in which our hogs are raised is incredibly important. Our animals are raised outdoors or in deeply bedded pens where they are able to express their natural instinctive behaviors, like rooting and roaming. We are proud of our pork program – superior genetics, high quality diet and strict raising protocols result in the unbelievably tender, juicy pork that chefs and home cooks love. We promise that you will continue to come back for more!
