About Us

Walnut Hollow Ranch LLC is located in the mountains of Western North Carolina in Hayesville. My name is Charlie Kissling, originally from New Jersey. I operate Walnut Hollow Ranch "All Natural Farm Raised Beef" and "Walnut Hollow Ranch Trail Vacation Stables".

Walnut Hollow Ranch offers Agri-tourism through farm tours, farm store, RV sites, camping and lodging. Walnut Hollow Ranch sells Premium Black Angus Beef, produced without hormones or anti-biotics with the highest welfare standards. The farm store offers many other local farmers food products and crafts. Recently, Walnut Hollow Ranch was bestowed the 2014 Regional WNC Conservation Farm Family of the Year award. Charlie is an active member of the community serving on the boards of Clay County Communities Revitalization Association and Clay County Travel & Tourism. Charlie brings a lifetime of entrepreneurial experience from the food and beverage industry to these local organizations. Charlie Kissling is the Chairman of Southern Appalachian Family Farms (SAFF) and market administrator for the Hayesville Evening Market.

I know fresh, quality foods and endeavor to offer you the highest quality, bold tasting, premium beef we can produce.

Our cattle are raised and cared for in harmony with nature in our temperate region of the Appalachian Mountains. I am a progressive cattleman, eager to learn, yet humble using proven methods to produce a premium - all natural - beef protein. I have been Beef Quality Assurance Certified #123 by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Walnut Hollow Ranch was granted a North Carolina Meat Handlers Permit #871. I have also previously had food safety instruction from the New Jersey Restaurant Association and Board of Health.

Choosing pastured beef is a wholesome, nutritional, healthy choice for your family. We are confident you will realize the value of Walnut Hollow Ranch Beef.

We're always looking for an excuse to get out of work and go on a trail ride. I enjoy meeting new friends who pass through or spend a vacation visiting Clay County. Often we explore the Nantahala Forest with our 'gaited' Paso Fino horses.
