WESTMINSTER, COLO. — Niman Ranch’s Uncured Bacon Breakfast Sausage was named a People magazine 2021 Food Award winner. The new links, featuring Niman Ranch’s artisanal uncured Applewood-smoked bacon, were selected as Best Breakfast Sausage by People editors who sampled more than 2,000 different products released in the past year to identify the very best.  

Niman Ranch’s Uncured Bacon Breakfast Sausages are made from high-quality, Certified Humane meat sourced from small, independent family farmers and ranchers who raise their livestock on pasture and in deeply bedded pens, sustainably and using no antibiotics or hormones—ever. The fully cooked heat-and-eat links are gluten-free and have no added nitrates or nitrites. 

“This recognition is a testament to Niman Ranch’s farmers and ranchers, who raise their animals with the utmost care,” said Chris Oliviero, Niman Ranch’s general manager. “Not only is this product delicious, as this award recognizes, it also directly supports family farmers, sustainable agriculture and humane animal care.”
