Welcome to the wonders of Wagyu. After building one of the largest herds of premium Wagyu beef cattle in the UK, the team at The Yorkshire Wagyu Company are delighted to offer this prized Japanese delicacy to chefs and consumers nationwide.
The Yorkshire Wagyu Company was established in 2013 after Yorkshire Wolds farmers Jonathan Shepherd (aka Shep) and Jim Bloom found a mutual interest in the world famous Wagyu cattle and the unique meat that it produces. They both recognised the need to explore the breeding, rearing and marketing of this increasingly popular product. Over the past couple of years, the team at The Yorkshire Wagyu Company has successfully bred one of the largest Wagyu cross and Wagyu full blood herds in the UK and are now producing this super premium beef for direct sale to consumers, retailers and restaurateurs.
Wagyu is a breed of cattle that originated in Japan, where it is revered for its unrivalled taste, tenderness and health benefits and was once only eaten by Emperors.

Raising the health steaks with Yorkshire Wagyu 09/08/2016
There is no shortage of diet plans for anyone who takes an interest in their health – from the three-hour diet and raw food, to sugar-free and 5:2, but research into the health benefits of Wagyu meat lead us to believe that it is an extraordinarily healthy meat and a fantastic source of protein.
A healthy choice
Wagyu is a good source of essential fatty acids and is high in mono-unsaturates (good fat)
A Happy Herd
Our cows are placid and live a stress free life, meaning their meat is deliciously tender and sweet.
As a member of WBA we play our part in moulding the future of wagyu breeding in the UK.
