Slow-Roasted Whole Guinea Hen Recipe

Corinne Kocher

White Oak Pastures’ guineas live unconfined on pasture, hunting, pecking, scratching, and dust bathing. This leads to stronger, healthier, and, in our opinion, tastier birds. It also means these birds use their muscles, which should be taken into consideration when cooking a pasture raised animal. Applying some of the same principles for preparing grassfed beef, such as marinating or seasoning one to two days in advance, can help tenderize those more active muscle fibers.

No parabens, no phtalates, no artificial colors - the new line of White Oak Pastures soaps use only our grassfed, pasture-raised, regenerative beef tallow, processed on our very own farm. 

When you use our Grassfed Tallow Foaming Soap and our Grassfed Tallow Body Wash, you know that it's made entirely of 100% fat from White Oak Pastures cattle - Certified Grassfed by the American Grassfed Association, Certified Humane, rated a Step 4 in the Global Animal Partnership, and Certified EOV by the Savory Institute.

It's been said that our skin is our body's largest organ, and we believe you should follow the same principles for skincare products as you do with the foods you consume.

This past weekend, White Oak Pastures was a sponsor for SHIFTCON, an annual conference for wellness influencers. We became involved through the American Grassfed Association, which facilitated a donation of White Oak Pastures grassfed beef brisket, pasture-raised duck, and pasture-raised chicken for three of the dinners for conference attendees (all 250).

After the conference, a select group of influencers traveled to southwest Georgia for a field trip to White Oak Pastures. This is where we got to see how these online personalities engage their audiences - they ask questions about everything!
