If you thought it was only fashion that went in and out with the seasons, think again. Our recent tour of the Niman Ranch facility sparked some interesting conversation about which beef/lamb/pork products are most popular at different times of the year. We thought we’d share this newfound wisdom:
January: New Year’s calls for a roast like Prime Rib, Rack of Lamb or a Ham
February: Valentine’s Day means a Beef Filet or Tenderloin
March: March Madness means Ribs, Franks, or Burgers
April: Easter Sunday can be Ham or Lamb ; Beef Brisket for the Passover seder
May: New York Steaks hit the mark on Mom’s Day
June: Memorial Day marked the beginning of Grill Season; try Bill Niman’s favorite.
July: Still Grill Season; try the Mixed Grill
August: Silence of the Lambs.
September: Labor Day marks the end of Grilling Season; despair.
October: Stews will keep you warm & toasty through April
November: Roasts are the most; in Beef, Pork or Lamb
December: Christmas brings Santa & Ham; Hannukah means 8 days of New York Strip Roasts!
