Dr. Temple Grandin

Creekstone Farms holds an official certification from the Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) organization (https://certifiedhumane.org)
The Certified Humane certification is by no means easy to obtain. A series of stringent audits take place to ensure the animals are calm, relaxed, and well cared for throughout their entire lives. For example, cattle prods, cages, crates, and tie stalls are strictly prohibited. Animals must be free to do what comes naturally and their diet must be quality feed – no animal byproducts, antibiotics, or growth hormones are allowed.
Hand Selected Black Angus Cattle
Black Angus cattle have long been known to create beef that is tenderer with a superior flavor. Most Black Angus programs select their cattle solely on hide color. Our cattle are hand-selected to be the best of the best and represent true Black Angus genetics. Only 1 in 100 cattle represents the Creekstone Brand!
The Creekstone Farms Premium Black Angus Beef program is one of the few branded programs certified by the USDA. This certification ensures superior products through more stringent guidelines and on-going inspections.
