Learn about what it takes to bring our pastured eggs to your plate and meet the team who does all the work.

The Bloomin' Eggs

Monica McLendon

 A hen's body creates a protective layer over the shell of an egg right before she lays it. This is called the “bloom”, which seals the shell pores and protects from bacteria entry.  When eggs are washed,  the "bloom" is removed which decreases shelf life and requires refrigeration.  Read on to learn about washed vs. unwashed eggs

While eggs are available through our online store and Atlanta Whole Foods locations, the farm is also following our zero-waste doctrine and treating our pigs with healthy, pasture-raised, calcium-rich eggshells which are not perfect for sales.

Managed Grazing - The Plant Side

White Oak Pastures Team

White Oak Pastures is practicing managed grazing and is managing the goals of holistic agriculture. This requires intricate integration of livestock and pasture management. Our role as land stewards is to carefully foster conditions such that our land is regenerated, it’s bioproductivity is increased, and our animals are healthy and profitable. Now we discuss the pasture forage side of managed grazing.

Managed Grazing - The Animal Side

White Oak Pastures Team

Now let's discuss the livestock side of managed grazing. At White Oak Pastures, we are doing managed grazing in a way that moves animals through the pasture in appropriate stocking densities. "Stocking densities" means the appropriate number of animals per acre. We move them at a certain rate so they are not overgrazing.

Drone Pasture Monitoring

White Oak Pastures Team

White Oak Pastures is working to document our managed grazing from an aerial perspective using drone technology. We have partnered with a drone support company, Skyraiders Aeronautics LLC, to maximize our utilization of our drone and the available software. Our Multimedia Manager, Laura Mortelliti, discusses below the ways we have partnered with Skyraiders.
