CHICAGO--()--Niman Ranch, the leader in sustainable agriculture known for its award-winning beef, pork and lamb, announced today that its products are now available on Peapod in the greater Chicagoland area. The same brand served by James Beard Award winning chefs across the country will now have its retail products available through the Chicago-based innovative online grocer.

Niman Ranch and its network of small- and mid-size independent family farmers raise livestock sustainably and humanely to deliver the finest tasting meat in the world©. All Niman Ranch animals are raised outside on pasture or in deeply bedded pens where they can exhibit their natural instincts to root and play, and are never given antibiotics or hormones – ever. This commitment to raising livestock to the highest standards can be tasted in Niman Ranch’s full line of products including fresh pork, beef and lamb as well as convenient prepared and heat and serve options including its fan favorite Applewood smoked bacon, family friendly hot dogs without artificial fillers and award-winning charcuterie.

“Niman Ranch started with one rancher and has grown its network one farmer at a time thanks to growing consumer demand and appreciation for meat raised in a way that you can feel good about feeding your family,” said Chris Oliviero, Niman Ranch General Manager. “We are pleased to begin offering a wide variety of our most popular products in the greater Chicago market through the seamless services Peapod offers, bringing the highest quality meat to dinner tables conveniently and quickly.”

“Peapod believes that an important component of any great in-home meal occasion is high-quality protein. Accordingly, we are working hard on behalf of customers to invent the most diverse menu in the industry," said Spencer Baird, Senior Vice President of Merchandising for Peapod. "This partnership with Niman Ranch helps us add an important new dimension to our protein portfolio that we trust customers will be excited about taking advantage of.

The new partnership will be celebrated with a special limited time offer discounting $10 off $30 spent on the new Fat Tire BBQ Collection, combining Niman Ranch pork and beef with the iconic New Belgium Brewing amber ale to produce juicy beer brats, fall off the bone ribs and succulent shredded pork and beef.
