Many of you are great fans of our beef program here at Colleton River, though I’m sure there are some who haven’t learned much about it yet. Today I’m taking a moment to describe our program in detail.
First and foremost, it’s a premium program that is set up specifically for our Club. With a craving for high quality beef and an eye toward healthier dining, we’ve sought out the very best produced and best handled beef available, yielding some of the leanest “center-of-the-plate” options we enjoy here at Colleton River.
Facts on the cattle itself and how it’s raised:
-The cattle are Aberdeen Angus stock with no outside influences
-It’s mostly raised in Nebraska and Georgia by cattlemen we know
-The genetics of the bulls are specifically developed for flavor and taste
-Herds are carefully fed in Nebraska and Iowa by ranchers we know
-The cattle are never treated with growth hormones
-They enjoy an organic corn diet and pure water from the Nebraska aquifer
That’s a great beginning, but how is it handled?
-The cattle are carefully selected for very specific characteristics
-Production is by an independent packing house located in Omaha
-Our cattle are humanely treated at the time of production
-Finished-cut items are produced to our specification
-Careful USDA grading and selection processes yielding the prime designation
-We enjoy a direct shipment from processing plant to Colleton River
With that said, you know the taste quality because:
-The reputation of Aberdeen Angus breeding stock
-The quality care and feeding programs by our friends in Nebraska and Iowa
-Rich marbling from the all-corn diet
-Our in-house aging processes to enhance the taste quality
-Our simple, product-first cooking approach
I hope this helps you appreciate the uniqueness of our program. I also hope that you will try a New York strip or a filet mignon with us very soon! Also remember, you can pre-order and pick up these steaks for your grill by contacting the Nicklaus front desk at 843.836.4400. Until next time, have a “beefy week”!
