Farmstead

About the Farmstead

Yak Ridge provides an agricultural environment that engages visitors in the process of growing and raising fresh, healthy, and delicious food. The acreage includes a herd of yaks along with honey bees hives, many varieties of produce, a coop full of chickens, and the natural flora and fauna of the Black Hills. Owners Julie and Jim have been supporters of local foods for many years, and their agricultural roots grow deep in the state. Generations of farmsteaders have given them a love of the South Dakota way of life, from farm to table.
