Wagyu Cattle were originally bred in Japan, and are renowned for producing beef of a superior eating quality - if you like, Wagyu is the Rolls Royce or Dom Perignon of the Beef world.   The unique taste and unctuous, buttery texture are due to the marbling of fat within the meat, fat which will begin to melt at room temperature.   It is also magically low in mono-unsaturates, which means you can relax and enjoy it without worrying about your health!

Our Welsh Wagyu cattle are reared by the forward-thinking Ifor Humphreys in Montgomeryshire, where they graze on the clover rich pastures of his family farm.   They are finished on grass or hay and a blended grain ration grown on the neighbourhood farm, and Ifor also gives them a daily pint of locally brewed Monty's Beer and a little massage, echoing the traditions followed by farmers from Kobe, in Japan, who made Kobe Beef famous.
