Maesawa Beef from Ogata farms represents the highest quality of beef from Japan and dining on Wagyu from this farm is considered a rarity. Ogata farm has worked hard over generations to earn their reputation as a top quality beef producer in Japan. In order to be considered Maesawa beef, the farm has to implement strict quality controls, including a stress-free environment for the cattle, which results in a beef that is smooth and tender in texture. No hormones are ever used on these cattle. Additionally, Ogata farm feeds their cattle a diet of beer lees, made from local beer, whiskey, and soy, which is not only high in nutrients, but also adds a faint sweetness to the beef. The environment for the cattle is of the highest quality, including a process which allows the herd to sleep uninterrupted, or “sleep in peace.”
