“full-blood wagyu beef” In the 1980’s an 85+ yr., old character actress named Clara Peller, was featured in an award winning television campaign ad for Wendy’s fast food restaurants. She and two other elderly ladies were in line at “Big Bun” restaurant where you never saw the hamburger beef only the giant bun. She would cry out in her scratchy, elderly voice, “Where’s the beef?” Wendy’s was touting it’s hamburger size versus competitors McDonalds and Burger King.

Miss Clara didn’t have the chance to visit a sprawling farm in Polk County, NC and Spartanburg County, SC, or she would’ve answered her own question with Caroland Farms, the highest quality, full-blooded Wagyu beef in the Southeast.

Wagyu is not your Dad’s hamburger or beef. Full-blood Wagyu beef (Japanese originated beef cattle) is an unparalleled taste in beef. This high-marbled beef has become a prized choice among American chefs in some of the finest restaurants and dining establishments coast to coast. Full blood Wagyu doesn’t need to be covered by a sauce, gravy, or anything else. It’s served best by itself so you can experience it’s discriminating and unrivaled taste. Wagyu is all about flavor.

There are a lot of farms producing crossbred beef and calling it Wagyu, but only Caroland Farms offers the largest selection and highest quality of full-blood Wagyu beef in the Carolina’s.
