Yak Ridge provides an agricultural setting that allow visitors to learn about growing and raising fresh, healthy, and delicious food. The acreage includes a small herd of Himalayan yaks along with honey bee hives, produce, free-range 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 homesteaders have given them a love of the South Dakota way of life, from farm to table.
Tours of the farmstead are available throughout the year and can be scheduled most, but not all, Mondays at 5pm (4pm November thru March) and Thursdays at 8:30am. If you are interested in touring the farmstead during your stay, please contact Julie as soon as possible after making your reservations and at least 48 hours in advance. For the safety of our guests and the safety of our animals, visitors are not permitted on the farmstead unless accompanied by Yak Ridge owners.
