Being thoughtful stewards of the environment is one of Perdue Farms’ most important social pillars. They are taking the following steps to lessen the carbon footprint and protect the ecosystem:
- For every bundle shipped, they will donate to the Arbor Day Foundation, which works to replant damaged areas of forests. This donation will help reduce the carbon footprint required to ship products to you.
- They designed the shipping boxes with sustainability in mind. Every box is made out of 100 percent recyclable cardboard and insulated with Green Cell Foam®. Green Cell Foam® is eco-friendly packaging and is biodegradable, compostable, and made from high-grade non-GMO cornstarch that is dissolvable in water.
- You’ll receive a reusable and recyclable grocery bag with every purchase. Reach for the bag next time you go to the store to avoid using paper or plastic.
- A pollinator seed packet is also included in every box. They wouldn’t be able to produce the food that they do without bees and butterflies, which help to make one out of every three bites of food we eat. Plant the seeds to create a robust pollinator habitat near your home!

Niman Ranch Fat Tire Ribs
The Niman Ranch Fat Tire Ribs are super tasty and easy to make! Combining the highest quality all-natural meats with New Belgium Brewing’s award-winning Fat Tire Amber Ale was of course a delicious combo!
The sweetness and hoppy bitterness of the beer is with tangy tomato based BBQ sauce. This pairs perfectly with the applewood smoked ribs.
