Wild Boar often gets a bad rap for being described as ‘pig or pork’; however, it is in a category of its own. Our Wild Boar is raised on the open range and eats grasses, roots, and other vegetation, giving this meat a sweet and nutty flavor. Wild Boar has one-third less fat, calories, and cholesterol compared to pork, making the taste and a nutritional value stand-out. The Chinese consider Wild Boar an aphrodisiac so…need I say more?

Get your snacking on track with Yak. Similar to Kangaroo, Yak is considered an ultra-lean red meat. The flavor can be compared to that of beef, but Yak contains more protein, vitamins, and minerals. Our grass-fed and free range Yaks are not treated with growth hormones, antibiotics, or any other chemical. Originally hailing from the Himalayas, the health and longevity of the locals can be attributed to their consumption of Yak meat. Shop our Tibetan Yak Jerky.
