BLAC Wagyu Offers Full-Blood Japanese Wagyu in Virginia and DC Metro Area

Share Article

Blue Ridge Land and Cattle (BLAC Wagyu) raises 100% full-blood Wagyu registered with the American Wagyu Association and is one of the only full-blood Wagyu farms in Northern Virginia. All of their stock’s DNA is traceable to Japan and is primarily from the Tajima bloodline, the only bloodline that qualifies as Kobe beef in Japan. Their grass-fed, antibiotic-free Wagyu has beautiful marbling, incredible texture, and an unmatched umami flavor. The variety of cuts are popular among individuals in Northern Virginia as well as top-rated restaurants.

“We started this farm with the goal of producing the highest quality Wagyu in a sustainable way with local small farm values and virtues,” said Eric Reid, owner of BLAC Wagyu. “Our objective is to slowly grow our herd and continue to feed the growing demand for high-end Wagyu in the D.C. region.”

While there are many American Wagyu options on the market, 100% full-blood Wagyu is much more rare. American Wagyu is a Wagyu-Angus crossbreed and is typically represented on a rating scale of F1, meaning it contains only about 50% Wagyu. BLAC Wagyu cuts are not only 100% Wagyu but they consistently achieve a Beef Marbling Score (BMS) of around 6. It is because BLAC Wagyu maintains the high level of care, demand and ambition needed to raise specialized full-blood Wagyu cattle that this BMS is possible.

BLAC Wagyu follows methods used for over 150 years in conjunction with the scientific method established by Dr. Jimmy Horner’s Protocol Naturals—an all-natural feed approach to livestock operations resulting in the consistent production of top-quality meat without the use of oral antibiotics and growth production enhancers. Their cattle are pasture raised as well as both grass-fed and grain-finished and bred with the sole purpose of producing as much marbling as possible. Located in Marshall, VA, just east of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the farm’s small, full-blood herd and strategic harvests ensure the highest quality and freshest product.
