BOOTH CREEK RANCH
Located just north of Manhattan, Kansas, our ranch was originally developed for world-class whitetail deer hunting. Contrary to the perception of Kansas geography, Booth Creek features deep, wooded creek draws surrounded by rolling hills of lush tallgrass prairie. It's a haven for all kinds of wildlife.
We still hunt, but now reserve more than 2000 acres for raising our Wagyu herd.
Our location provides a number of advantages in the Wagyu industry.
Some of America's largest Wagyu producers are headquartered on the West Coast, but they raise their cattle in the Midwest, where grass and grain are cheaper. Then the cattle are hauled across the country for processing
Each animal can lose up to 150 pounds during the journey due to stress, which also impacts meat quality. Thankfully, that's not an issue we ever have to face.
Given that Kansas is known as “The Breadbasket of the World, we are able to offer our cattle high-quality grains, and protein-rich prairie grasses all in our back yard making the process much more affordable. We pass those savings on to our customers to complete a cycle we call the Tallgrass Prairie Advantage.
We are big on high quality experiences at Booth Creek Wagyu, which is where the concept for our retail store stemmed from.
Our retail store located in Manhattan, Kansas is the first-of-its-kind meat market. In addition to offering dozens of different cuts for sale, this retail space will also include a “sampling kitchen” equipped with a specialized cooktop capable of searing steak in less than a minute. Guests will be offered bites of steak prepared by BCW's team members.
This concept allows guests to try before they buy, gathering helpful knowledge of different steak cuts and preparation methods.
Fresh and Never Frozen Shipping
While all our Wagyu products are worth the wait, we decided to make that wait shorter, which is why we rolled out our Fresh and Never Frozen Products in our retail store.
