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.

Recently, Walnut Hollow Ranch was bestowed the 2014 Regional WNC Conservation Farm Family of the Year award.

Walnut Hollow Ranch is the first business in Clay County to receive recognition from the NC Department of Environmental Quality. The NC Green Travel Program recognizes businesses in the travel industry that have established and adhere to a set of guidelines that protect the environment. The farm is committed to protecting our environment by conducting business in such a way as to conserve energy, water and natural resources. Walnut Hollow Ranch seeks to be a better steward of the earth by creating a healthy environment for its guests, employees and community. This is accomplished by implementing an energy reduction program, water conservation program, helping to protect air quality and reducing the amount of solid waste generated. The cattle ranch has a commitment and passion for conservation and preservation of farmland. The farm is proud of the stewardship of the land.

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.

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.
