Poroshiri Wagyu derives its name from where they are raised, Mount Poroshiri, which translates to “Great Mountain” in the Ainu language. Mount Poroshiri is found within Hokkaido Prefecture, and has become celebrated for its rare plants, summers full of lush greens, and winters dressed in powdered snow. On the farm, stones from ancient times known as “Bakuhanseki” are used. These stones are popular for their medicinal and cleansing properties that purify both the surrounding air and water. Poroshiri Wagyu feed exclusively on the farm’s own grass field in which their feed is grown on, and only drink water that has been purified by Bakuhanseki stones.
By being raised in these pristine conditions the result is a very unique flavored wagyu that is characteristic of the region, that also still maintains the traditional silky , smooth, buttery properties that are expected from a premium wagyu.
