No, but this is a very common question. Although all Kobe is Wagyu, not all Wagyu is Kobe. Wagyu is the breed of cattle, which hails from Japan, and is famed for its dense marbling and flavor. Kobe beef comes from Wagyu cattle that meet very strict guidelines and are born, raised, and slaughtered the Hyogo Prefecture of Japan, whose capital city is Kobe. Wagyu beef from the US could never be Kobe beef, even though you might see “American Style Kobe” on a restaurant menu. We raise 100% Fullblood Wagyu, which is Wagyu cattle that have never been crossbred so it maintains all the lovely qualities Wagyu is known for.
