Yak

Yak Facts

Why do foodies, models, body builders, and athletes prefer yak meat? It’s because of the amazing taste, extremely low fat content, and abundance of protein. Yaks also produce very little methane gas and they do not destroy land when they graze. By all measures - yak is the ideal meat!

“I first tried yak meat in 2013. It was one of the most delicious things I have ever tried. Since then I have had their steaks and also made some yak burgers for a family reunion. HK Yak Ranch has yet to disappoint. The meat is delicious but what is even more out of this world is the customer service. The HK Yak Ranch crew are some of the nicest people on the planet and will bend over backwards to ensure that every customer gets the best service and best yak meat in the US. I will definitely be ordering from the HK Yak Ranch again!”

“My past experiences with HK Yak Ranch have been nothing but EXCELLENT. The operators are so friendly and knowledgeable with a sincere commitment to providing customers with a unique and healthy product line. They’ve officially converted me into a yak fanatic with such delicious and nutrient rich meat! I love trying alternative protein sources but when it comes to this ranch, I was sold on how they always deliver high quality products that are lean, lower in calories, and irresistibly sweet and rich in taste. I’m thrilled whenever I make a new dish with any of the HK Yak Ranch products, from stews, to burgers, to steaks! The sky is the limit when it comes to yak meat dish creativity so don’t hesitate… Give HK Yak Ranch a shout and they will get you the best yak meat and products on the market.”

“I enjoy the wide range of cuts HK Yak Ranch offers. The steaks are so delicious I typically go back for seconds. I have also experienced delicious flavors of yak jerky. I take it to work, road trips, watching TV, or even out playing in the woods. I enjoy Yak meat because of its health benefits and exotic title. I know the HK Yak Ranch provides pleasant grazing grounds for the entire herd.”

“This sweet lean red meat is delicious because there are no hormones added. The animals are free range and drink fresh water.”

"I am still beginning to explore the wonderland of cooking for myself and deciding what kinds of recipes I like, and branching out into different kinds of meat is a large part of that exploration process. Yak is one of the more rare and interesting meats to experiment with and it adds a much needed variety to any diet. It is not as gamey as buffalo meat, but it has a wild flavor that beef lacks. For those of us who have limited experience outside of the beef, pork, and chicken triangle it is a good branching out point."

“Obsessed with it! Ever since I started eating yak meat, I haven’t been able to get enough. Fitness and diet are huge parts of my life, and yak meat has been a great addition. I thank HK Yak Ranch for introducing me to yak meat. I’ve tried some other exotic meat businesses, but I choose HK Yak Ranch because of the standard of excellence they provide across their entire business.”
