We are Jesse and Leah Steffensmeier of Midwest Wagyu Beef. We both grew up on small family farms in southeast Iowa, just 11 miles from each other. We took different career paths initially, but we were brought back to farming after we married in 2007. We began raising American Wagyu in 2015, having learned of it's high quality and tremendous health benefits. Our farm to table operation began when Leah retired from medicine in 2018, seeing the importance of providing a healthy source of beef for families. Faith, family, & farming are the core value of our operation, and we aim to serve that in every bite of our Premium American Wagyu Beef.

Our Mission

To raise Premium American Wagyu Beef to improve the health and well-being of the families upon whose table it is served.
