First Light is a small New Zealand company quietly changing the world by doing the unthinkable: it took wagyu cattle out of their pens and raised them on beautiful fresh grass pastures where they are free to roam every single day. First Light is a cooperative of family farmers a group of like-minded people with a shared set of values, the most important of which is producing beautiful, marbled grass-fed beef, which beef experts all over the world are describing as the best grass-fed beef in the world.
The First Light promise is to produce and provide you with delicious meat, raised right, by people who truly care.
First Light wagyu cattle are raised as nature intended on lush pasture, eating a 100% grass diet, with absolutely no grains, no animal by-products and no feedlots. The result is great-tasting meat, full of natural marbling and packed with Omega 3 – the kind of 'good fat' we should be eating, rather than avoiding.
Constant strive for excellence
First Light 100% grass-fed wagyu has claimed three gold medals in recent years: the World Steak Challenge in London (2018 & 2019); and the Steak of Origin competition in New Zealand. These accolades reflect a constant strive to produce the world’s best tasting beef – succulent, tender and full of flavor.
