At BLAC Wagyu (Patrick's Well Farm), we focus on quality over quantity. We maintain a purposefully small heard, which allows us to take greater personal care of each cow through its lifecycle and give our customers high-quality beef.
BLAC Wagyu also works to be environmentally and economically sustainable in order to be good stewards of the natural resources our farm relies on. Methods such as regenerative farming, minimizing air and water pollution, managing water wisely, building healthy soil, dealing fairly with our workers and contributing to our local community all contribute to creating the highest quality Wagyu.
ABOUT PATRICK'S WELL FARM
Patrick's Well Farm, located in Marshall, VA, has a rich history that dates back to the early 1900s when it was known as Arlington Farm. The farm has since been renamed and has been a working farm for over 100 years. Today, the Reids own and operate the farm, with a focus on sustainable and ethical farming practices that prioritize the health of the animals, the soil, and the local ecosystem.
The unique ecosystem of the Blue Ridge Mountains is integral to the success of Patrick's Well Farm's Wagyu beef production. The region's cool and temperate climate, rich soil, and abundance of natural resources provide an ideal environment for raising Wagyu cattle. The breed requires a nutrient-rich diet that consists of a variety of grasses and forages, which are abundant in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Additionally, the local water sources, such as streams and ponds, are clean and reliable, providing the cattle with a constant source of fresh water.
The Blue Ridge Mountains' ecosystem is not only vital to Patrick's Well Farm's Wagyu beef success, but it also contributes to the unique taste and marbling found only in Wagyu beef produced in Marshall, Virginia. The ideal environment, nutrient-rich diet, and clean water all play a role in our meat's exceptional high-quality.
Patrick's Well Farm's commitment to small farm values and virtues is a reflection of its strong ties to the local community and Virginia history. The farm is actively involved in the community that celebrate the rich history and agricultural heritage of the region. By prioritizing sustainability and ethical farming practices, Patrick's Well Farm is not only preserving its own legacy but also contributing to the preservation of the unique ecosystem of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
At BLAC Wagyu, we are proud to use regenerative farming practices to raise our 100% full-blood Wagyu cattle. Regenerative farming is an approach to agriculture that focuses on building healthy soil, promoting biodiversity, and reducing the use of synthetic inputs such as fertilizers and pesticides. This approach also promotes the use of natural inputs such as compost and manure, which reduces the need for synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, further decreasing greenhouse gas emissions.
By implementing regenerative farming practices, we not only produce high-quality Wagyu meat but also contribute to mitigating concerns around greenhouse gas emissions. We take pride in our dedication to sustainable farming practices that serve the environment and our customers alike. We believe that through our regenerative farming methods, we can not only produce delicious, high-quality Wagyu meat but also contribute to the greater good by reducing our carbon footprint and promoting biodiversity.
