Colly Creek Pastoral Company

All Angus steaks and beef selections on our menus at the Willow Tree Inn come from cattle born and raised on the lush green pastures of Colly Creek, also at Willow Tree, NSW.

colly creekColly Creek was purchased by our company in mid 2005 and comprises over 6,000 acres of prime breeding and fattening country, bounded by the New England and Kamilaroi Highways at Willow Tree.  The Colly Creek aggregation also includes approximately 2,000 acres, known as “Plain View” on the Merriwa Road, 3kms west of Willow Tree.  This property benefits from four large grain silos and a 600-head feedlot, which allows us to finish our pasture fed cattle on local barley grown on the Liverpool Plains.

Colly Creek, managed by Richard Noble and assisted by Roger Barnett, has in excess of 2,500 head of Black Angus cattle, from which we choose the 20 best steers each month exclusively for Graze restaurant and bistro and the function room. 

Each month management from both Colly Creek and Graze jointly taste-test our beef to ensure consistency of product week-in and week-out, which helps us achieve the highest quality possible.  The Black Angus cattle born and raised on the beautiful, rich green pastures of Colly Creek have excellent marble score, tenderness and flavour. Colly Creek has recently added Black Faced Suffolk Lamb to the breeding family, with numbers already increasing to almost 190 head. Each day our menu offers a different cut such as lamb rump, rib rack & our delicious slow cooked shoulder for two. Come and enjoy a meal at Graze restaurant and taste for yourself ...
