What is Olive Wagyu?

Olive Wagyu is raised on a handful of farms in and around Shodoshima Island in Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa. Olive Wagyu brings everything you've come to love about Wagyu, but is far, far rarer and packs a more powerful umami flavor.

Only a small amount of Olive Wagyu is harvested per month, because only a few farmers on the planet — all clustered in coastal Kagawa — raise it.

Crowd Cow travelled to the small cow-shaped island of Shodoshima to visit the farmers and learn the history.

Olive Eating Cattle

Crowd Cow sources from three small farms in Kagawa that upcycle wasted olive pulp from olive oil production as feed for their cows, which results in exceptionally high levels of oleic acid (that's the healthy fat that gives this beef its extraordinary softness and melt-in-your-mouth feel).

We met with Masaki Ishii, the olive beef creator to learn more.

First Hand Experience's

"One of my dreams just came true. I ate some of my wagyu steak I thawed which came from you. It melts in your mouth for real. I could not imagine how that could happen but now I know. I like juicy steak and eat mine always very rare. But this steak was juicy not from blood but from fat which melts in your mouth. I knew I was eating beef but never had that texture before. I will make a few meals out of it. I am in heaven. It was sublime. The salt was awesome. I am so happy I found you guys."

“After tasting the A5 wagyu striploin, I am afraid to go back to anything else. It truly was an experience, and I want to thank Crowd Cow for making that possible.”

“That was such a delicious cut of wagyu, big ups guys! Please keep me informed on the next batch you guys get. Thanks for the unforgettable experience.”

Olive beef is so rare, it's hard to find even in Japan.
