About Us

The extraordinary taste and tenderness will inspire you

Chefs are fanatical about flavor and freshness — they know better than anyone that culinary inspiration begins and ends with the highest quality ingredients. With its beautiful color and intricate marbling, its delectable tenderness and rich flavor, you’ll be inspired to create your own culinary delight for family and friends.

A Deeper Appreciation of Quality

The first thing you notice about Mishima Reserve American Wagyu Beef is the abundance of intricate marbling throughout the meat. But that's just one visible characteristic and source of flavor. Equally important are the texture, tenderness, and density of the beef, all of which are inherently superior qualities of our Kuroge Washu beef.

Sustainably Packaged

We have two important objectives in preparing your order for shipment. First and foremost, that your meat arrives in perfect condition. Second, that the packaging be as environmentally friendly as possible. We seal each steak in its own airtight wrapper and use dry ice to ensure everything stays cold or near frozen. The insulating liner is water-soluble and can literally be washed down the drain or composted, and the outer shipping carton is fully recyclable, post-consumer cardboard. 

Carbon Offsets For a Better World

To further reduce our environmental footprint by offsetting carbon emissions caused by our industry, we have partnered with Eden Projects to help reforest Madagascar, one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth.


The Mishima Reserve Story

The Mishima Reserve story begins as so many stories of discovery begin—while traveling. Our founder, third-generation cattleman Shane Lindsay, had traveled to Japan for college when he learned about their ranching methods and their obsession with Wagyu beef. It was a delicacy that U.S. chefs had only begun to discover in the mid-90s. Back in the States, Shane used his expertise to spearhead the first major Wagyu operation outside of Japan. That early success compelled him to start his own operation, one that would allow for complete control and transparency over the process, while honoring the meticulous breeding, feeding and care protocols he’d learned from his Japanese mentors.

A Creative Food Company

As a cutting-edge foods company, we have a keen eye for craft food movements, having had a direct hand in launching and guiding a number of celebrated restaurants and artisan food brands, including Beecher’s Handmade Cheese, Seattle’s landmark steakhouse The Butcher’s Table, and others.

Our first experience with Mishima Reserve—where we gained a deep appreciation for its quality—was as a customer serving it in one of our restaurants. We knew Mishima Reserve and craft beef aligned perfectly with our vision for sharing authentic and unparalleled culinary experiences with others. When an opportunity to acquire Mishima Reserve and partner with Shane arose in 2013, we jumped at the chance to bring this extraordinary brand into the family.

Our passion for delicious, healthy food and our steadfast belief that everyone deserves access to it, are the driving forces behind Beecher’s Foundation. Dedicated to education, advocacy, and a willingness to tackle the toughest challenges concerning the foods we eat, the Foundation is helping build a better food future for all.
