YAK TRACKS: Meeting Tashi Sherpa, the GM of our Biggest Yak Buyer

Two weeks ago, the GM of Himalayan Yak restaurant took his day off, and drove up from NYC to Steadfast Farm to buy some yak meat to take back to their popular Jackson Heights eatery. Turns out, he was born in urban Nepal, and had never actually seen a live yak before. We remedied that immediately.

Here's an email from him of a few days ago - always good to strengthen our relationships with our business partners.

Hi Rob,

Sorry for replying late because of the busy july 4 weekend. We also included yak menu this time and people are loving it.

Our chefs has thanked you for your caps and shirts.Also, your souvenir (Yak skull) looks great in our displaying area. I have attached our picture taken by myself . Thank you once again for showing and introducing your yaks. It was fun.

Hoping to visit you soon to get more when we ran out of it.

Take care.
