Our story begins in the Heartland of America, a land of expanse, passion, and resiliency...

A land filled with lush green crops that extend their limbs towards the royal blue sky. A land where farms lay hidden between endless fields and the shimmer of light on grain silos, the only indication of their presence. It is here, nestled deep between the expanses of farmland, that the North American elk thrive.

Down a one-lane country road, you will find a ranch where the elegant, powerful nature of the elk is matched by the grounded, resilient work ethic of seasoned rancher and partner, Scott Groen.

Scott, alongside his wife, three kids, and two dogs, has invested every day, over the past twenty-five years, into raising the healthiest elk in the world. To Scott, caring for the elk is much more than a duty; his drive is rooted in respect for the animal and the continuance of his family's farming legacy.

We believe our ability to positively impact lives starts with the velvet we put into each capsule. We promise to bring you 100% pure velvet, always.

Who We Are

The Han Institute brings you the purest and highest quality velvet on the market. Our velvet comes from only the tips of the antler (the most nutrient-rich area), is hand-selected and artisan crafted using a 2,000-year-old ancient eastern technique. This process ensures the integrity of the velvet while locking in important vitamins and nutrients. It is also the most effective curing method for whole body absorption and utilization while boosting over-all health and vitality. Our premium velvet has the highest level of efficacy and we guarantee you will feel and see a difference. 

Our Quality

Our North American Elk and our Elk Velvet are always tested for any type of waste disease or inferiorities and our strict quality control ensures only the best goes into our capsules. Furthermore, We work with our local vets and The Fish and Wildlife Association to ensure none of our animals are harmed during the compassionately harvested antler extraction process.
