About Us


Located in SW Colorado near Ouray, Patty Yaks is the perfect habitat! Established in 2007 Patty and husband DeGrey Phillips started Patty Yaks. Patty was known locally as the "Yak Whisperer." She had an exceptional way with all of the animals on the ranch and her prized herd. (See NWSS page) She researched yak behavior intensively. Since her passing in Dec. 2013, DeGrey has taken over their small operation. He intends to carry on her tradition of raising high quality, managable full-blooded registered Tibetan Yaks.
