Raddog Ranch is owned/operated by the Brooks Family. Noah and Danielle, alongside their 4 boys (#brooksbrothersracing) have accumulated a large herd of Tibetan Yaks with intent to offer their local community a better red meat alternative. They also think its important to introduce a more sustainable animal to the ranching community.
For the past 6 years Danielle and Noah have owned American Cultures, a Colorado Local Kombucha Taproom in the LoHi area of Denver. While juggling a booming Kombucha Room, raising 4 little boys, and fixing and flipping homes throughout Colorado, they decided to invest in some yaks to lower their property tax. Instantly they fell in love with the animals. The Yaks manure didn't stink and the yaks would let you touch them, two of the many advantages yaks have on other bovines. Eventually these animals became a part of their family, helped everyone to work together and each person take on a responsibility. One boy goes to the farmers market, another one fills the water tank, another one opens and closes the gates and big brother can run most of the equipment and feed most of them by hand.
The journey has not only transformed the families diet, but also their family dynamics. "These kids have been with us along the way at every step of the process. They have gone to the butcher and know what happens and how their meat gets processed. We have all cried together about that, but we also realize what an honor it was to raise them and what an honor it is to offer such a great meat to our community."
