Bill Niman won't eat Niman Ranch meat

This weekend Stacy Finz of the Chronicle wrote a great piece about Bill Niman, and the pressures (and difficulties) of taking a small-scale business big time. I was an early fan of Niman Ranch meats, easily fell in love with their superlative hot dogs and apple-wood-smoked bacon, and now am wondering whether I should continue supporting a business that claims to still employ the quality and husbandry standards Niman put in place but has done some dubious streamlining since Bill Niman's ousting from his eponymous company late last year.

I just wanted to draw attention to this article by Barry Estabrook on the struggles facing venerable meat company Niman Ranch—further proof that this bad economy isn't just affecting restaurants, but also the larger, good companies that we all hold so dear. Yikes.
