The Piedmont region of Northwestern Italy has for centuries been famous for its wines and its rich cuisine. It’s also the home of the Piedmontese breed of cattle, which originated there over 100 years ago. This region consists of green, rolling hills, and lush valleys in an area boarded by France to the West and Switzerland to the North.
A special group of ranchers in the Great Plains of the U.S. and Canada have worked hard for 30 years to adapt this unique breed of cattle to this area of the world, to expand and improve the breed.
Creekstone Farms beef is from all Back Angus Steers. The animals are raised on small, family owned farms including Diamond Ranch Farms in Kansas. The steers live their lives on pasture, and are finished on corn to develop marbling.
Creekstone steers are not dosed with antibiotics, in fact are 100% hormone and antibiotic free their whole lives. All Creekstone Farm steers are processed in a facility that was designed by Temple Grandin, PhD, a professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University, who developed a method for the most humane way to process livestock. Less stressful handling of the animals results in better tasting meat.
