Oregon Ethical & sustainable

We love yaks.

We believe in giving love, care, and high value to our animals’ lives. Our yak roam freely and feed on the native Oregon grasses of the farm. All the yak have names and different personalities. From epic diva to aloof oddball, we love them all!

The herd lives an organic life and never receive growth hormones. At Firebird Farms, we embrace the full circle of life, but our yaks never see the inside of a slaughterhouse.

Our Farm

Our farm is located in southern facing hills outside Ashland, Oregon.

We’re between 4,000 and 5,000 feet in elevation, an appealing ecology for yak. It’s a place of astounding beauty, about half forest and half meadow pastures. There’s calmly rolling hills, steep vertical ascents and endless skies.

Ethically raised

For breeding, meat, fiber arts or just enjoyment on your farm, we have the yaks for you.

No animal is the same. We cater to their differences from birth and raise each to understand their role. With nearly 80 yaks in our herd of bulls, cows, calves, and steers, we understand the importance of making an impression from birth. In fact, most of our yak are tame due to the love and care we give each cow and calf.

    THY Rhaegar - Firebird Farms

    THY Rhaegar, 2E186. Born 5/29/17. We are so glad to have Rhaegar in our breeding program. His dam Dawa is one of our best producing cows and his sire Cee Lo was an incredibly beautiful bull. Rhaegar has the looks of both his parents and is a total sweetheart. He produces great fiber and has a sound structure with a look we love. He is masculine, with refined, chiseled features and his offspring are friendly, gorgeous calves. We love his enjoyable, gentle temperament. We are offering him this year to the right farm to carry on these amazing traits. Many of our girls are related to him or his offspring. He is such an incredible bull and we will miss him!

    SBR Kesari

    $0.00
    SBR Kesari

    Kesari is on the top five list for best nose competition. You'll know what I mean if you've ever seen a yak beg for treats, sticking their muzzle in the air before you. She is funny and quirky with just a dash of diva. She produces excellent calves that are solid, healthy and gentle.

    SBR Janice

    SBR Janice

    Janice is all yak. She is big, powerful and elegant with great conformation, a strong, beautiful face and wide horn set. She is level headed, smart and steadfast. Janice came from a wild herd in Montana and while she is gentle and reserved with humans, we wouldn't want to be a predator around the herd with her in charge protecting her young.

Choice of chefs

A premium and unique red meat, yak is an excellent option for the home and professional kitchen.

You’ll bring new life to your menu and home table with the introduction of yak meat. Yak is a lean, juicy, primitive red meat with a delicate flavor. Our yak products are grass-fed, added-hormone & antibiotic free. A nutrient-rich food high in iron and essential fatty acids, yak is as healthy as it is delicious.

How we started

Since I was a little girl I wanted to have a farm.

I wanted to create a place where people could connect with the natural environment in a way we seldom do in our modern world. I wanted people to see something real and beautiful. Something we almost forgot, but have held within us and want to experience more.
