Located in beautiful Western North Carolina for 30 years, Dr. King's Carolina Bison is committed to your health and culinary experiences by bringing you flavorful, nutrient-rich, locally-raised bison and other wild meats (yak, Watusi, and elk) without the added hormones and antibiotics found in most meat products. At Dr. King's Carolina Bison, our mission is to promote a healthy lifestyle by offering the highest quality meat while honoring the life and history of the American Bison. Book a reservation to visit Dr. King's Farms, and enjoy an informative tour, viewing (and hand feeding!) the American Bison, African Watusi, elk, and Himalayan yak in comfort, while seated on an open-air tour trailer pulled throughout the scenic property with gorgeous long-distance mountain views. After the tour, browse our gift shop and farm store (bring a cooler!). Dr. King's wild meats may be enjoyed in local restaurants, and/or purchased from local stores, our farm store (in Leicester), the main office in West Asheville (call ahead), or from our website: DrKings.com/Farms. We look forward to seeing you soon!
