An Evening With Niman Ranch

October 12, 2023
Thursday, October 12th 6:00PM - 8:00PM | $90

Visit our Meat department and you'll find many Niman Ranch products. We've all heard it before: you should get to know the farmers who grow and produce your food. This class is your chance to get to know our good friends at Niman Ranch. We love their philosophy of sustainable meat practices, and that they're proud supporters of a large network of U.S. family farmers and ranchers. Many are second, or even third-generation farmers who inherited the land from their parents and grandparents. These family farmers' passion for the land and raising livestock provides the foundation for Niman Ranch's finest tasting meat. This class will transport you to the supple grasslands of Niman ranches as you learn about the ranching lifestyle, and you'll enjoy a comforting meal made by Chef Carrie. This menu will be paired with wine.
