Carolina Bison • 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. Dr. King’s son, Frankie King, III, serves as Carolina Bison’s C.O.O. while actively participating as Regional Director of the National Bison Association.
In keeping with Dr. King’s vision for optimum health, Carolina Bison are raised without the use of any added hormones, antibiotics or stimulants. We are able to certify our meat as 100% All Natural because we are committed to the strict guidelines associated with this label. The herd is highly respected and humanely treated by the entire team. We proudly participate in Animal Welfare Approved harvesting.

The History of Bison • Approximately 60 million American Bison, commonly known as the American buffalo, roamed the North American plains when the first pioneers settled the frontier. Bison represented an abundant food source for Native Americans and settlers alike, offering longevity and strength to all who partook. Due to a combination of excessive hunting, U.S. expansion westward and a general lack of respect for the herd, the American Bison population soon teetered on the brink of extinction.
Thanks to efforts of early preservationists and concerned private breeders, the bison population was given enough protection to slowly rebound. Today, more than a half-million bison again thrive on native ground. A growing demand for a healthy, eco-friendly, sustainable meat source has given ranchers and farmers incentive to raise bison. This consumer demand helps keep bison breeders in business while simultaneously strengthening the future of the herd.
Bison are special in their ability to thrive within diverse climates. Their sturdy bloodline has stood the test of time, proving them more resilient to the many complications common to modern livestock. Unlike most modern livestock, bison free-range without the need for barns or synthetic structures, which preserves natural resources.
With genetics on their side, American Bison require fewer interventions than typical bovines, resulting in a delicious meat that is, in so many ways, far superior to any other protein sources. Untainted by steroids, fillers and additives, our bison is naturally flavorful and 100% pure.
The one-and-only, true American red meat is back. Thanks to private breeding measures, the American bison is no longer an endangered species.
