Under the partnership, Creekstone Farms will process Pasture One’s products and sales staff and both companies will focus on sales of the boxed beef. The goal of the partnership is to expand Creekstone Farm’s product offerings and increase Pasture One’s distribution capabilities.
“We are excited to move our production to this facility, where Creekstone has built a reputation for quality humane animal treatment and has a stellar food safety record,” Pasture One CEO Peter Hausin said in a statement. “The Temple Grandin-designed facility and third-party humane certifications were exactly what we were looking for in a processor for our cattle. Creekstone Farms is well-aligned with the Pasture One mission.”
Pasture One touts that its cattle spend their entire lives in pastures and are never given any added hormones or antibiotics. Grass-fed beef produced by Pasture One will be added to Creekstone Farm’s current product lineup, which includes conventionally raised, fed beef, antibiotic-free beef and non-GMO raised and fed beef.
“The Pasture One line of grass-fed beef complements our current product offerings while extending the depth of our variety with a beef product that our customers are looking for,” Jim Rogers, vice president of sales and marketing at Creekstone Farms, said in a statement. “We were looking for a great quality, consistent grass-fed program and found it with Pasture One.”
