Colleton River Beef
The finest beef available. Period.

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

In summer…

or winter…

count on the very best in Colleton Beef!

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”!
