the most important meal of the day
Alameda, CA (Vocus) September 16, 2010
At Niman Ranch (http://www.NimanRanch.com) we believe weekends are the time for families to reconnect and that a hearty breakfast is the perfect way to do just that. Now with, Niman Ranch’s all-natural, cage-free eggs it’s simple for socially aware chefs and consumers who are concerned with how and where their food is raised, to prepare a breakfast that consists of the highest quality, finest tasting, ingredients, produced humanely and sustainably on small U.S. family farms.
By providing a single, trusted, source for everything from applewood smoked bacon, apple cinnamon breakfast sausage, thick sliced hamsteak, and Canadian Bacon, Niman Ranch’s new line of all-natural, cage-free eggs takes the guesswork out of preparing “the most important meal of the day”.
Niman Ranch cage-free eggs will provide the highest quality, all-natural, brown eggs that have been produced in accordance to Niman Ranch’s raising practices and protocols. Niman Ranch works with 25 local U.S. family farmers who raise Rhode Island Red Hens, a heritage breed that is particularly well suited for cage-free environments. Niman Ranch’s laying hens are never given added hormones or antibiotics and are fed a 100% vegetarian diet. Niman Ranch cage-free eggs, give diners and shoppers alike an all-natural, sustainable, humane choice for all their breakfast needs.
“This pairing seems obvious to us. Bacon and eggs is the quintessential breakfast classic, and now our customers can get the same commitment to sustainability, humane animal care, and U.S. family farmers from a Niman Ranch carton of cage-free eggs as they do from all of Niman Ranch’s products. Niman Ranch’s customers are socially aware and engaged chefs and consumers who are concerned with these issues and this is the way for them to create a variety of gourmet breakfast selections that not only taste delicious, but they can feel good about serving,” said Jeff Tripician, Chief Marketing Officer/EVP of Sales for Niman Ranch.
Niman Ranch’s decision to work with 25 U.S. family farmers will allow them to source eggs locally for specific geographic regions. “Among the many benefits of this program is the fact that we’ll now support an entirely new set of U.S. family farmers, adding to our family farming network and ultimately creating a positive impact on a number of local rural communities,” Tripician, said.
Keeping in line with Niman Ranch’s commitment to gourmet quality, these eggs possess a richer, creamier textured, golden-colored yolk and an overall fluffier texture.
These all-natural, cage-free eggs also contain a number of additional health benefits as well. They’re a good source of Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin E, they also include 3 times as much Omega 3 fatty acids, 25% less saturated fat and 19% less cholesterol than conventional eggs.
