YAK TRACKS: The "Daily Princetonian" Yaks About Our Yaks
Thanks to Kate and Rob's alma mater's Daily Princetonian for this nice story today about our Vermont Yak Company work at Steadfast Farm.
And one reader already posted a comment, wondering why we don't call ourselves a "ranch" rather than a "farm.
The answer? We are a small operation, built on land that was devoted to dairy farming for decades.
The term "ranch" smacks of bigness, and the West, and feedlots - none of which are to be found at our Vermont operation.
We prefer the term "farm."
Thanks for writing the article, Andrew!
