We thought this was big news: Bill Niman launches his new enterprise, BN Ranch specializing in grass-fed beef.

After separating from Niman Ranch, Bill has been working with goats and turkeys, but his real interest remains beef. For him, the ideal beef animal is older, more developed, grass-fed, and harvested when the animals are still feeding on dried grass where the seed is hard.

We’ll be getting more of these animals next week. For now, we should have cheeks this Saturday, August 7th, and tongues for our 2010 Beef Dinners, October 14th–16th.
