No, but this is a very common question. Although all Kobe is Wagyu, not all Wagyu is Kobe. Wagyu is the breed of cattle, which hails from Japan, and is famed for its dense marbling and flavor. Kobe beef comes from Wagyu cattle that meet very strict guidelines and are born, raised, and processed in  Hyogo Prefecture of Japan, whose capital city is Kobe. Wagyu beef from the US could never be Kobe beef.

Our Wagyu is 100% Wagyu and our Oostema Wagyu (or American Wagyu) beef is produced here on the Farmstead by crossbreeding our 100% Wagyu with American Domestic Breed; which results in a cross-breeding.  All of the sires are hand-picked by Glen himself.

The fat content is typically lower than Japanese Wagyu due to less marbling, and this creates a hearty, beefy flavor many find very palatable when included in well-known dishes. The result is a pleasant balance of tenderness, texture, and flavor.

“Premium” starts with animal quality – aka “genetics. To produce genuinely premium beef, one must start with premium genetics.   

“Premium” is the best word we have found to describe the experience we intend to create with our beef. 

Whether you choose our Wagyu or our Premium, you will be buying the best beef we can produce, and we are certain it will be higher quality and more consistent than beef from the grocery store. They cannot do what we do.

When beef does pass inspection, it is stamped or labeled with the USDA inspection stamp, and that means it is fit to eat. The USDA’s inspection is all or nothing. There’s no halfway or partially-passed beef. Meat inspection is a very thorough process.

All of the meats are sealed and frozen.

Our meat products are sourced directly from a reputable butcher and are shipped frozen and uncooked. Should you prefer to have the meat thawed upon your arrival, please inform us in advance, and we will accommodate your request by defrosting it in the refrigerator.

 Email is the best method for getting in touch with us, we can also be reached by phone 1-360-815-1494

Welcome to “Recipe and Tips”! Cooking Wagyu beef can be easy and incredibly delicious. To fully appreciate the rich and robust flavors of this premium beef, we suggest keeping things simple.

Our top recommendation is to season your Wagyu with just a sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground pepper. It’s important to never overcook your Wagyu, so we advise cooking it to no more than medium-rare.
