Who We Are

We are a family who are living and creating the yak experience on our ranch in beautiful Northern Michigan. As IYAK registered breeders, passionate educators, and proud members of the growing U.S. yak community, we are ready to help you at any stage of your yak journey.
Our genetic line is backed by decades of elite breeding practices, making our animals ideal stock to grow a herd or raise a yak or 2.



We selectively breed our herd for excellent dispositions, appearance, and health.


We passionately share the yak experience with the curious and adventurous.


We are dedicated to growing the yak community by supporting others as they begin and develop on their yak journey.
