What is Wagyu?
At Châtel Farms, our herd consists of Japanese heritage, full-blood Akaushi bulls. Akaushi is a Japanese cattle breed that was imported to the United States in 1994. Since then, their numbers have grown but remain somewhat exclusive and limited in availability. Many in the industry refer to Akaushi as the “Emperor’s Breed,” and it is one of four breeds that fall under the common name of Wagyu. These red-hided cattle are known to produce highly marbled beef with a unique beefy flavor and buttery texture. Wagyu also boasts high levels of the “good fats” like Omega 3 and Omega 6, which results in truly healthy beef.
What is Angus?
Angus is a well-known cattle breed in the United States. Angus are renowned for producing tender beef with a rich flavor. However, not all Angus are created equal! The Châtel Farms Angus cattle are raised in a vertically-integrated process that starts with superior genetics, a low-stress environment, and high-quality feed. We are dedicated to delivering superior Angus beef that you can count on.
