Creekstone Farms Natural Black Angus Beef
Did you know that many beef producers claim their product is natural when the animals the beef came from were raised using antibiotics, hormones, and growth promoting drugs? Not At Creekstone Farms! All of our Natural products come from animals raised in truly Natural manner. Our Natural program offers a complete line of fresh and ground beef.
The Creekstone Farms Natural Protocols:
- No Antibiotics - EVER!
- No Added Hormones - EVER!
- No Growth Promoting Drugs - EVER!
- No Artificial Ingredients - EVER!
- 100% Vegetarian Diet
- Sourced Verified to Ranch of Birth
- Humane Animal Handling Practices
- It takes longer and creates more work to raise cattle using these guidelines, but we think it's the right thing to do.
At Creekstone Farms, our commitment to treating our livestock with the utmost compassion and care has been long-standing. In fact, our cattle receiving facility was the first to be built from the ground up that adhered to the guidelines and design of Dr. Temple Grandin, associate professor of animal science at Colorado State University and one of the leading experts on animal welfare. We also hold official certification from the Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) organization (https://certifiedhumane.org/. HFAC is the leading non-profit certification organization dedicated to improving the lives of farm animals.
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.
We are proud to announce that Creekstone Farms Natural Black Angus Beef program passed every test with flying colors and has been HFAC certified since September 2015. Ryan Meyer, VP of Cattle Procurement at Creekstone Farms, said it best – “It’s one thing to say we do things the right way, but it’s a considerable accomplishment to attain third party validation of our humane handling guidelines from an organization with industry-leading standards.”
You can count on Creekstone Farms to serve as a role model for humane treatment of animals throughout the beef industry.

Non-GMO Project Verification
Non GMO Project, an organization with the goal to preserve and build the word’s non-GMO food supply, verifies the supplier of the cattle for the Creekstone Farms Non-GMO program. In order to place their name on our packaging, we must follow strict protocols, backed up by third party audits. This verification means that throughout their lifetime, our cattle were raised on grains and forages that have been tested to be GMO-Free. At Creekstone Farms, we feel very proud and privileged to have the ”Non-GMO Verified” label on our beef.
A Single Family Farm with only the Strictest Standards
Cattle certified by the Non-GMO Project are raised on a 100% vegetarian diet consisting of homegrown grains and forages. All of the seed used to raise the grain we feed our cattle is tested before planting and retested again after harvest by Genetic ID, a third-party lab specializing in genetic markers. In addition to a clean diet, all animals in this program are sourced from a single-family farm RR1 Farms in Nebraska.
At RR1 Farms, strict standards are in place to ensure humane animal care and handling. The result – premium quality Black Angus beef you can feel good about serving to your family.
