Niman Ranch Women in Food Scholarship Announcement

Additionally, Drew announces the new Women in Food Scholarship that will provide one rural America young woman with a $5,000 scholarship and mentorship support from WCR- Women Chefs & Restaurateurs and the James Beard Foundation, the two organizational co-sponsors of the scholarship.


Niman Ranch Mission

Niman Ranch and its network of U.S. family farmers and ranchers raise livestock, humanely and sustainably to deliver the finest tasting meat in the world.
Niman Ranch works with one of the largest networks of small, independent U.S. family farmers and ranchers – over 720 and growing.
All Niman Ranch animals are raised outdoors or in deeply bedded pens. We lead the industry in sustainable and humane agricultural practices.
Niman Ranch raising protocols were developed with the help of animal welfare expert Dr. Temple Grandin, and are the strictest in the industry.

Drew Calvert, VP of Innovation

Drew Calvert received her Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from the University of Texas – Austin, close to where she grew up. She started her career with Pricewaterhouse, in San Francisco, but a love of food lead her to change careers and attend culinary school.
