Is Wagyu Beef New?

Not at all! Wagyu beef can trace its origins to Japan in ancient times. This unique form of beef was carefully developed over many generations by Japanese farmers. However, Wagyu is relatively new to the American market. Americans first got their taste for imported Wagyu in the mid-1970s. The unique flavor and tenderness of the beef created a growing demand, inspiring American ranchers to start producing this sought-after beef.
