We are Frank and Kelly King and we wanted to tell you about ourselves, our farm and how it all started. We are self-proclaimed foodies with a deep passion and love for nature, farming, food and health in every aspect. You’ll see us mention “total health and wellness,” a lot here. How we define total health and wellness is it’s a lifestyle. Not a diet, not a workout regiment, a way of life. We care about where our food comes from, how it was raised, we spend time working on our spirituality and its’ health, we love to be active and in nature and keep our bodies moving for physical health. The short answer, total health and wellness is what we put in our bodies, minds and spirits, impacts our quality of life.
I (Frank) grew up on a farm here in the mountains of Asheville. My father, a naturopathic doctor, owns a natural medicine manufacturing company here and maintains the farm. I joined the marines at 17 and after my enlistment ended I returned to the farm to grow the farm as a business, that’s now known as Carolina Bison and DK Natural meats. My upbringing influenced how I live today and my passions in life. Working at Carolina Bison, I invested everything I had into learning as much as I could about producing bison to be as healthy and great tasting meat as it could be. What began as just learning how to best raise bison for a healthy meat and a happy animal, grew to encompass total health and wellness. I wanted to know all about sustainable agriculture that produces a healthy product and how it impacts not only our health, but how the food tastes. This led me down a very long road of exploring total health and wellness and making it a lifestyle.
While operating Carolina Bison, I met my lovely wife Kelly. She moved to Asheville from Georgia in 2010 with a passion for yoga and living the quintessential yogi lifestyle of total health and wellness. While living in Asheville, Kelly focused on her yoga practice and earned her 230 hour Yoga Alliance RYT at Asheville Y
