Yak cheese is cheese made from yak's milk. It is popular in Himalayan regions like Nepal and Tibet. The Western style cheese is as rare as moose milk, donkey Pule and Camel-bert - the difference is that this cheese is actually available in the US. This is the only Western style cheese available in the US and Europe - there's a yak cheddar, gruyere and tomme, and it's imported from the High Himalayas by Prairie Sky Ranch. The milk is collected by Himalayan Nomads and the cheese is made by a French fromager partnering with Prairie Sky. Prairie Sky also creates domestic yak cheese using the same traditional recipes at their domestic Heritage Yak Dairy located in Rolling Ground, WI. They are winning awards, and 3-star Michelin chefs, cheese judges and people on the street call it "excellent". They are working to save this endangered yak genome and support endangered nomadic cultures.
