Make sure you watch this video. It was definitely one of my most enjoyable farmer interviews! Farmer Naito-san is hilarious and full of surprises. He had me laughing through the whole interview 🙂
If you are interested in unique farms in Japan, then this article is definitely for you!
Naito-san breeds and raises his own Angus cattle on his farm in Hokkaido, which he inherited from his father and expanded after working on beef farms in Canada in his 20’s.
- Naito Farm specializes in Angus beef cattle. They breed their own calves (as well as buy some in) and after weaning he fattens them in his own feedlot which is situated on the property. This means the cattle never have to leave the farm – they are born, raised and fattened all on the same property, which is quite rare in Japan.
- The property has 200 hectares – 50 hectares of pastures, and 150 hectares of natural forest. In winter, the cows take shelter in the forest from the snow.
- You can buy Naito’s Angus beef online and have it delivered to your door!
If you would like to order Naito Angus Beef directly from the farm, send Naito-san an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will deliver to you in Tokyo! See their website or here to see the beef cuts available.

Thank you Naito-san for introducing us to your beautiful farm! It was so wonderful to meet you and to see how your cattle are raised. It must be amazing to see it in winter too with the snow!
