Like the cooler climes of top grape producing regions, the cold northern clime of Hokkaido features weather and soil extremes that create challenging growing conditions and extremely high quality local forages. Tokachi Farm is located on the Daisetsu plain in the shadow of still active volcano, Mount Tokachi. The poor soils here produce small but intense grasses that produce some of Japan’s best dairy and beef cattle.
Our A5 grade Wagyu Ribeye is features a superb flavor and texture with an ethereal flavor profile balanced against rich, buttery lushness. This is the insiders Wagyu.
Simply put, Japanese Wagyu is the pinnacle of the steak world and A5-grade the rarest of all steaks, less than 1% of total Japanese production.
Like fine wines, the flavors and legendary intramuscular fat structures of Japanese Wagyu vary noticeably, not just from region-to-region (known as Prefectures), but from farm-to-farm based on genetics, feeding protocols and husbandry.
