What is Wagyu Beef and where does it come from?
Wagyu is the Japanese word for a cow from Japan. Literally translated: "Wa" stands for Japanese and "gyu" means cow. Wagyu means Japanese cow. Fellers Ranch® is proud to be one of the only ranches in Minnesota to grow and sell true Wagyu. Wagyu is an ancient livestock breed that has its genetic origins traced back over 35,000 years to Japan. Initially Wagyu was used as a draft animal for agricultural work, and for physical stamina. Today's Wagyu cattle are the product of crossing this native Japanese breed with imported black breeds from Great Britain, Korea, and Europe.
What makes Wagyu so special?
The unique marbling found in Minnesota's Finest Wagyu is what separates it from other cattle breeds and gives it its rich flavor and melt-in-your-mouth texture. Fellers Ranch® Wagyu also has a higher percentage of mono-unsaturated fat, which is the "good" kind of fat that actually lowers cholesterol levels.
Why should you try Fellers Ranch® Wagyu Beef?
Fellers Ranch® Wagyu beef is the perfect blend of flavor and nutrition. It's an indulgence you can feel good about! Fellers Ranch® is a locally owned ranch in the heart of Southern Minnesota. We take pride in raising our Wagyu cattle with the highest standards of care and compassion.
Fellers Ranch® was started by five partners who all have deep roots in agriculture and livestock production. A discussion amongst friends and relatives about the challenges faced by family farmers and small cattle ranchers led to one common theme: the beef industry is controlled by big meat packing plants that focus on quantity rather than quality. Competing with these multi-national corporations on price is not a viable option.
After months of research and planning, Fellers Ranch® was born with a mission to create a vertically integrated Wagyu beef company that would allow family farmers and a local meat processing plant to thrive by supplying a superior product.
