WAGYU BGC: Best, Authentic and Highest Grade A5 Japanese Wagyu Beef

Wagyu beef a5 japanese wagyu wagyu bgc

Did you know that A5 is the highest grade given to the finest Japanese beef?

WAGYU BGC serves only A5 Japanese Wagyu (Ohmi, Hida, Kagoshima, Saga). Yes, only the best for their customers. You don’t have to travel to Japan to satisfy your wagyu cravings. WAGYU BGC is supplying certified and documented wagyu beef imported from Japan. Okay, going back to the different kinds of wagyu beef served at Wagyu BGC: Ohmi has a sweeter taste and lower melting point. Ohmi and Hida are like the “Hermes” of Japanese Wagyu beefs while Kagoshima and Saga are “Louis Vuitton.” All of these have a low melting point so never leave them at room temperature because they will literally melt due to its beautiful marbling.

With Jensen Kinder Farm, she can now educate people by teaching farming methods and techniques to children and adults for their urban houses. She aims to raise awareness about organic farming and hopes to inspire people to become organic consumers so that there will be more demand for organic products and support organic farmers in return.

BATANES: Celebrating The Joy of Life

There are no words to describe Batanes and its beauty. More than the breathtaking scenery, I was even more impressed and amazed by its people, the Ivatans. They have shown me how easy it is to find joy in life: the simpler, the better.

Ivatans value Honesty and Integrity more than the material stuff. They value education. They value hard work and perseverance. Did you know that there are no out-of-school youth in Batanes? I commend the local government and the teachers in Batanes. There are no beggars and no street children. Everyone gets to eat and live in a comfortable way. They live an honorable life.

As of the moment, there are only a few places in Batanes that have an internet connection, and I hope it remains this way to preserve what they have. I believe in the power of social media and its ability to influence people and at times, its tendency to make people crave for more “wants” in life. For now, let us treasure the peace and serenity of Batanes – because with the contentment of a simple life, they have found the joy of life.
