Why do you say your product is ‘all natural beef,’ instead of ‘organic? Because “organic” is a USDA-regulated claim, and we don’t believe we should relinquish our accountability to the government in any way.
Also, with USDA regulation for terms like “organic” there are potentially inhumane restrictions and requirements. For example, if an animal is hurt from something as innocent as scratching against a tree and gets an infected cut, to keep the herd “organic” you’d either have to separate the animal completely from the herd to treat with a topical anti-biotic ointment or you’d have to not treat at all.
Since Cattle are herd animals to separate them would cause them stress. We strive to be good stewards of our cattle and the land. Our goal is to have happy, healthy cattle.
Free Range Black Angus
Healthy cattle roam. Ours have access to plenty of fresh water and healthy, native grass. We practice rotational grazing on our 2500-acre ranch. We are good stewards of the cattle and the land.Snow Creek Ranch is
Much of the ranch has been reverted to natural prairie grasses indigenous to the area. These grasses create an environment for native insects. These insects help to break down the cow pies into beneficial compost for the land. We also rotate quail from pasture to pasture to help control the bugs and breakdown manure. Kinda like chicken scratching.
Doc loves quail because they are great for training his world champion hunting dogs. the ranch is often refereed to as the “Quail Hilton”.
We believe this environment is safest and healthiest for the ecosystem on our ranch, and in turn, healthier and more delicious for you!
Grass Fed / Flax Finished
Our cattle are grass fed on Native prairie grasses which provide a variety of nutrients in their diet. This helps to give them increased honeycombing in their trip (stomach) which allows for better absorption of the nutrients from the food they eat.
We finish them on a specially designed feed program that includes flax seed oils. Research from the Kansas and Iowa State Universities has shown increased marbling and increased omega-3 fatty acids (the good ones) in beef raised with flax seed oils.
So not only does Snow Creek Ranch beef taste better, it’s better for you!
No Hormones, No Steroids
Sure, a program of regular growth hormones and steroids makes it cheaper (up to 30% cheaper!) for ranchers to produce. It is unhealthy for our cattle and for you. We strive to produce healthy cattle and do not use short cuts.
We’re committed to producing safe beef fit for our children and yours, even if it costs more to do it.
Dry Aged 21 Days
Dry-aged beef, is exposed to air so dehydration can further concentrate the meat’s flavor. It’s a more expensive process than wet-aging, however, because the meat loses weight from dehydration, and it also must be trimmed of its completely dried exterior. You will notice when you grill Snow Creek Ranch Steaks and burger there is much less shrinkage than with store bought meat. You are getting more beef per pound and less water.
Dry-aged beef is typically not sold by most supermarkets in the U.S. today, because it takes time and there is a significant loss of weight during the aging process. Dry-aging can take from 15 to 28 days, and typically up to a third or more of the weight is lost as moisture.
Also, the beef’s natural enzymes break down the connective tissue in the muscle, which leads to more tender beef.
Simply put, dry-aged beef is beef that has been left to age in a dry, climate-controlled environment. But it’s also so much more. First, dry-aged beef is buttery smooth, with muscle fibers and tough tissues tenderized via the aging process. Second, dry-aged beef has a greater complexity of flavor.
Dry aging is the process by which large cuts of beef are aged for anywhere from several weeks to several months before being trimmed and cut into steaks. It’s a process that not only helps the steak develop flavor, but also makes it far more tender than it would be completely fresh.
Dry aged meat can benefit your health in many ways. Humans have short digestive tracts; through dry ageing we wait for the enzymes in our meat to break down amino acid chains, meaning the flesh is more tender, more flavoursome, and easier to digest. Those with digestion issues usually have no problem with Snow Creek Ranch beef.
