Here at Chophouse Steaks, we are the exclusive local purveyor of Brant Lake Canadian Wagyu. However, when browsing our online butcher shop, you may notice that this Wagyu beef is substantially more expensive than many other cuts available. Why is that the case? And what makes Brant Lake Wagyu beef so special? We answer these questions and more below.
Why Is Wagyu Steak and Beef So Expensive?
Brant Lake Canadian Wagyu beef, and Wagyu beef in general, is more expensive because it is simply much better quality than any other type of beef on the market today. Wagyu cattle are painstakingly raised, grass fed, and kept on a barley-based diet. Furthermore, they are completely hormone-free and treated with love and care. Happy, well-fed cattle equate to better tasting, healthier beef.
