Roots of Passion

From Humble Beginnings to Wagyu Excellence

Our story unfolds with a simple yet transformative decision: acquiring two Wagyu steers for personal consumption. The first taste of this exceptional beef was nothing short of a revelation, setting us on an unwavering path dedicated to the Wagyu breed. Initially motivated by a quest for superior meat quality, we quickly became advocates for the highest standards of animal welfare. As our small circle of friends and family relished the flavors we shared, their enthusiasm mirrored our own and spurred us to dream bigger. This wasn’t just about enjoying premium beef; it was about creating a legacy of quality, care, and respect for the land and livestock.

The positive feedback ignited a desire to expand, yet we vowed to maintain the integrity and welfare of each animal as our herd grew. This ethical commitment shaped every decision, leading us to the pivotal acquisition of a USDA Federally inspected processing plant. This move was more than an expansion—it was a declaration of our dedication to ensuring that every animal’s life is honored with the utmost respect and compassion.

Today, New England Wagyu stands as a testament to our journey: a thriving farm with over 200 head of cattle, a state-of-the-art breeding program, and a beloved retail location in Mason, New Hampshire. Each step from our modest beginnings to our current success tells a story of passion, dedication, and the relentless pursuit of quality and ethical farming.

"The meats here are perfect for any occasion but are extra special to serve around the holidays. Every cut of Wagyu beef we have enjoyed has been prepared with loving care and strict attention to quality. Even the ground Wagyu is elegant. It all cooks beautifully. New England Wagyu is outstanding."
"I have had Wagyu beef multiple times on both coasts as I spend 6 weeks a year in CA. New England Wagyu is absolutely the best I have ever had. It is melt in your mouth tender and the flavor is fantastic. Diana and her terrific staff at the Hilltop Farm and at the Peterborough Farmers Market provide exceptional customer service. I love visiting both locations and highly recommended New England Wagyu."
