The Tale of Niman Ranch

Brendan here, with a word about meat. If you're familiar with Niman Ranch meats, you probably know that it was recently taken over by Natural Food Holdings, a bigger company not founded by hippies (probably). Bill Niman isn't impressed by what they've done with the place, and won't eat the meat that still bears his name. On the other hand, the company is now showing a profit, for the first time ever. A synopsis of Niman Ranch's founding, rise and buy-out can be found here.

I think people should raise animals the way Bill Niman does. But if you can't show a profit that way, forget about the business. Raise the animals, eat them, barter with them, and find another way to pay the bills.

Stumble Upon Toolbar

I think the barefoot contessa has a Niman Ranch burger in her latest cookbook. I love her but I worry about the product placement.

particularly if the product has gotten worse

Wow, so you would like all meat to come from animals raised as a hobby. That'll put a damper on meat production/consumption.

btw, I agree that we should raise animals much, much better than we currently do. And eat less meat. Or maybe pay more for the work farmers actually do so that quality in its true sense doesn't have to be sacrificed.
