We are located in the lush Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Carolina Bison raises its herd on top-quality grasses and pure mountain spring water. Our robust bison graze freely on hundreds of open pasture acreage, reminiscent of the original native herds.
Founded by author, lecturer, and whole-health practitioner Dr. Frank J. King, Jr. in 1985, Carolina Bison is proudly one of the largest bison ranches in the Southeastern region. With a mission to improve the health of his patients naturally, Dr. King began prescribing bison meat with astonishing results. As an alternative to commercial red meat, bison provided such superior nutrition to his patients, that they commonly experienced more energy, fewer digestive issues, and increased immune function. Noticing such dramatic improvements on a diet of native bison, Dr. King continued to extend the size of his personal herd.
Driven by the great history of the American Bison, the King family is committed to educating the public on the endless benefits of bison. Securing the future for these impressive animals remains an important agenda for the King family.
The Carolina Bison Farm Tour is a casual ride through our beautiful mountain ranch, supporting the 400 head of bison. This tour offers a unique experience, visitors can see and feed hundreds of the great American Buffalo. Our farm store will be open, selling the one and only Real American Red Meat.
