Great Farmers, Doing It Right

Raising Grass-fed Wagyu & Red Deer

If you are going to set about having the best Grass-fed meat brand in the world it pays to have the best people raising the animals.

We understand the value of ownership, so we decided the best formula for producing the perfect steak is to have the person growing the animal own 50% of the company, and the people responsible for everything else own the other half. The success of First Light is built on having a clear goal, the equitable distribution of risk and reward, and everyone doing their job, collaboratively.

Why become a First Light farmer?

For some it’s the sense of pride from producing a beautiful product that they know people are going to enjoy. For others it is being part of a group of like-minded individuals who are at the top of their game. Of course there is always a commercial driver, First Light is for farmers who want a guaranteed hedge to the commodity market, a stable, fair price they can use to better manage their business.
