Yorkshire Wagyu Calves

About Us

After two years spent establishing one of the biggest wagyu cross and Wagyu full blood herds in the UK, Yorkshire Wolds farmers Jim Bloom and Jonathan Shepherd have launched The Yorkshire Wagyu Company to sell their premium beef direct to consumers, retailers and restaurateurs.

Consumers are increasingly looking for new and different great tasting products with known provenance and Yorkshire Wagyu satisfies that demand perfectly.

It’s still relatively uncommon in the UK, but we aim to become the largest scale producer of British Wagyu and put this fantastic meat firmly on the culinary map.

Jonathan Shepherd and Jim Bloom are also founder members and directors of the Wagyu Breeders Association; the first new cattle breed association in 25 years.

The (British) Wagyu Breeders Association (WBA) was founded in 2014 by a group of Wagyu breeders and enthusiasts from around the UK to promote British Wagyu beef and represent the interests of its Members at home and abroad. The WBA is affiliated to the Australian Wagyu Association.
