WESTMINSTER, Colo. – Sustainable agriculture player Niman Ranch and meat delivery company ButcherBox have announced a partnership on digital storefront www.butcherbox.com/niman/. Niman’s customers will now have the ability to purchase two meat bundles online that feature an assortment of chef-inspired meats with the ability to add on additional Niman Ranch products at checkout.
“There are certain parts of the country that do not have access to any Niman Ranch partner stores,” Niman Ranch general manager Chris Oliviero said in press release. “In other markets, not all items may be available. The option to order online creates national access to all consumers, everywhere.”
Online butcher shop, ButcherBox, has seen steady growth since 2015 by focusing on the delivery of 100 percent grass-fed, grass-finished beef, free-range organic chicken and heritage breed pork to members across the continental US.
“We’re dedicated to building ButcherBox into the leading online source for meat that consumers across the country can trust,” said Mike Salguero, founder and CEO of ButcherBox. “Niman Ranch is known for their long-held commitment to raising their animals with the utmost care, something ButcherBox is deeply committed to as well. We’re proud to be a key partner and support Niman Ranch’s family farmers as they embark on this new direct to consumer offering to bring their products to even more homes throughout the country.”
“I’ve served Niman Ranch for years in my restaurant because of their commitment to quality, flavor and raising their animals to the highest welfare standards,” said Shane Hammett, celebrated chef de cuisine of Lone Eagle Grille at Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort. “This partnership makes the same humanely raised, clean meat available to everyone. I myself live in a rural mountain town where it is difficult to find quality meat for home cooking, but now my neighbors and I will have the option to order the same meat I proudly serve in the restaurant with the click of a button.”
The storefront launch will start by offering two boxes. The first option, Niman Ranch Lunch and Dinner, features apple gouda sausage, ground pork, bratwurst, cooked spare ribs, kids hot dogs, pulled pork and pork tenderloin. The second option, Niman Ranch BBQ, will have baby back ribs, ground pork, Italian sausage, hot dogs, kids hot dogs and pulled pork. Both options cost $99.00. The storefront will add more options for holidays and changes in season and customers will be able to add items to customize.
To celebrate the new partnership, Niman Ranch will host an Instagram and Facebook contest where three randomly selected participants will be chosen to win one of the new curated boxes. Learn more by visiting www.facebook.com/nimanranch and www.instagram.com/nimanranch.
