White Oak Pastures
The Harris family has raised cattle on the same South Georgia farm for five generations. Making the conscious decision in 1995 to return to a production system that is better for the environment, for animals, and for the people who eat these meats, Will Harris of White Oak Pastures reinstituted the multi-species rotational grazing practices of his forefathers. They are fiercely proud of their zero-waste radically tradition farming practices, and the farm and family have now come full circle. Today, they raise 10 species of livestock. They process the animals on the farm, and market the beef, lamb, poultry, rabbits, eggs, vegetables, leather products, tallow goods, and pet chews directly to consumers who appreciate their artisan, small-batch products. They are the largest organic farm in Georgia and their meat can be found in Publix, Whole Foods, Kroger, and on their robust online market. Their first book, A More Simple Business, will publish with Viking in 2022.
