Matheson Farms Grass Fed Beef introduces Grass Fed Yak Beef!
We now have individually wrapped cuts of Yak Beef and ground Yak Beef for sale. The meat is from a hybrid animal – mating a Yak Bull to a beef cow.
The resulting offspring are built more like a beef animal but with longer hair. The meat looks like beef but is slightly leaner and has a wonderful mild flavor. It is not gamey tasting at all. Yak meat is reported to be lower in fat, cholesterol and sodium, while higher in protein. The meat resembles yak meat more than beef.
We have the same type of cuts as in the beef: steaks, roasts, bones, short ribs, ground, bones, etc. The steaks look great and they are tasty.
We will also have Yak Beef and pure Yak meat available by the half, whole and quarter this fall and winter.
Email us at today at firstname.lastname@example.org to order your Yak Beef today! I can tell you from personal experience that the meat is excellent! They say, “Once you go Yak, you never go back!”
