Becky & Tim Weise are 5th generation stewards of the family farm since 1854.
Our wagyu beef is all-natural, pasture raised, grass-fed, grain finished, hormone-free, steroid-free & antibiotic-free from birth to harvest. We offer monthly wagyu beef subscriptions, individual cuts, jerky, sausage, and sides of beef.
We did not start out with a goal of selling our beef like we are now. We actually just started sharing pictures of our delicious foods on social media, and people who saw it started asking if they could buy some.
Tim’s parents were very self-sufficient, and that turned into a way of life for us as well. As they aged, they turned over the cattle to us.
It just made sense to utilize the farm as it was intended for all of these generations. So as a way of keeping the farm more sustainable, we explored selling our beef locally, and it seems to have been the right thing to do.
We heard about wagyu beef and all of the wonderful health benefits it brings to the table. Wagyu beef naturally contains a higher percentage of omega-3 than regular beef, making it heart healthy as well.
Wagyu beef is lower in total cholesterol than beef from other breeds. Wagyu beef has a much higher proportion of the desirable monounsaturated fats (“MUFA”). MUFA has been proven by a variety of research to be either neutral to cholesterol levels, or to lower cholesterol levels, while also increasing HDL (good cholesterol) levels. Eating meats high in MUFAs is proven to be healthier than a diet of lean meats. Read that again.
Wagyu beef also contains PUFA, or polyunsaturated fatty acids, another essential fatty acid which is important for nerve function, blood clotting, brain health, and muscle strength.
“Essential fatty acids” are fatty acids that are essential to human health, but which cannot be “manufactured” by the human body and which must therefore come into the body through one’s diet. Wagyu beef is packed with essential fatty acids.
Wagyu is also higher in a type of fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Wagyu beef contains the highest amount of CLA per gram of any other food – about 30% more than other beef breeds. CLA is an essential fatty acid that's important for good health. As an antioxidant, CLA may have cancer-fighting properties, and in fighting off heart disease.
Health food stores often sell CLA as a weight loss supplement, but it’s particularly effective when you consume food that contains it naturally. Your body most easily absorbs nutrients directly from your diet, as opposed to supplements.
Whether you’re in the market for sausages, burgers, steaks or a good roast, consider replacing your grocery store beef with wagyu beef from Weise Farms. The benefits are many and varied, including a healthy dose of iron, choline, vitamins A, B, E and K2.
