The Best of WNC

Apple Brandy Beef

Apple Brandy Beef derives from cowherds consisting of Hereford and Angus cattle. For generations our family has selected specific genetics in an effort to produce a superior cow herd. The beef available for purchase is the product of these prestigious cow herds. We know the pedigree and complete history, including exact age, of each animal that goes into our beef program. On our farms we do NOT use synthetic hormones or antibiotics, except for medical necessity.


Sunburst Trout Farms

The techniques of smoking, boneless fillets, processing red trout, and preparing caviar, all began to expand the horizons for commercial farming at Sunburst. Soon to follow was a pate (dip). Carefully portioned pieces of the largest fattest fillets and even a presentation known as "en papillote", a French culinary concept, were also making a name for themselves. We have been able to expand our offerings to not just trout with encrusted and marinated fillets, trout jerky, but also a non trout product, pimento goat cheese that pairs perfectly with our hickory smoked trout.


Carolina Bison

A fourth-generation American farmer who discovered a passion for natural health and organic farming as a young man.Dr. King’s core motivating principle behind his dedication to the unique living things on his farm is to provide the therapeutic foods necessary to restore human health in the 21st century. Because these animals ultimately nourish others with their meat and milk, Dr. King insists upon impressively high standards of care. The animals live a peaceful life grazing on lush pastures seeded with a diverse combination of nutritional non-GMO grasses.
