Dr. Kings Carolina Bison

Carolina Bison promotes a healthy lifestyle by offering the highest quality meat while honoring the life and history of the American Bison.

About US
At Dr. King's Carolina Bison you will find American and European bison, as well as Watusi cattle, camels, yak, deer and elk. We raise our animals to the highest possible standards, ensuring their optimal health and vitality that can be passed on to the people that consume their meat and milk. Preservation of these species, which were so vital to the evolution of ancient peoples, is foremost in Dr. King's mind and he has been working on developing the best methods of animal husbandry in the NC mountains for well over 30 years.

We are delighted to open our farm to the public for tours to allow people to see firsthand how the animals are raised and to educate about why these animals are so important to not only our health but to the health of the land. At the farm we also have bison and elk meat for sale and plan soon to have a camel and Watusi dairy for people to be able to sample and purchase these ancient and healthy milks. We also sell our meat to many local markets and restaurants in Asheville and beyond.

A day on Dr. King's Carolina Bison Farm will be like no other. The beauty of the land being grazed by happy and healthy animals in the shadow of the mountains is striking and we are overjoyed to share it with you. We are only 10 miles outside of downtown Asheville, but in reality we are 65,000 years away.
