Texas Yaks is family-owned and operated in Weatherford, Texas. Our yaks are grass-fed and have free range of approximately 300 acres.
Yak meat tastes like beef, but better! Buffalo and elk meat are both lean and tend to dry out when cooked. Yak meat is also a lean meat; however, it remains juicy when cooked. Overall, yak meat has a delicate taste to it and it isn’t gamey or greasy. If you’re still not sure if you’ll like the meat, try some ground and cook it as you would ground beef. It is naturally very lean as the fat is located primarily on the outside of the carcass and is easily trimmed off resulting in low marbling which makes yak some of the most heart healthy meat on the market today.
We now have a printable flyer to advertise our yaks and yak meat.
