Many new products and services nowadays are marketed as convenient, catering to new consumer preferences about ease and accessibility - think meal kits, easy microwave dishes, fast food delivery. Most of our customers also appreciate convenience, but they are probably more interested in other aspects of food like eating responsibly, bearing in mind the impact of their choices on land, animals, and society. While there are limitless schools of thought when it comes to eating "responsibly," at White Oak Pastures we work hard to have a positive impact on our land, treat our livestock well, and support our employees. We hope you agree that our pasture-raised meats, grassfed tallow, handmade leather accessories, rawhide pet chews, and all the products of our zero-waste ethos qualify as...
White Oak Pastures is known for meat, for good reason - our farm is centered around using animals and their impact on pasture to regenerate land. Our grassfed beef and pasture-raised poultry, heritage pork, and other proteins are the backbone of our farm, and our business.
But while we are proud of the products we offer, we also always think about how our customers are going to eat them. More specifically, sometimes we think about breakfast: if we’re going to offer bacon, eggs, and sausage from White Oak Pastures, wouldn’t it be nice to round out breakfast with something like locally ground biscuit mix and jelly?
That’s why we’ve started carrying some new items in our Farm Store - items that complement what we’re producing on the farm, from producers who share some of our same values.
Cured meat has been around since 3000 BC, and we are so excited to add it to our offering for our customers. We partnered with The Spotted Trotter in Atlanta to develop 3 delicious Summer Salamis: Genoa, Black Pepper & Sorghum, Cured Chorizo. We’re sure you’ll love them! Using our pasture-raised pork and simple ingredients, we could not be more proud to have these available in our online store.
St. Patricks Day. As a young child, the only thing I knew about St. Patrick’s Day was that if I didn’t wear green to school, I was going to get the fire pinched out of me. All. Day. Long. Lesson learned. As I got older, I learned that green was and still is, NOT my color. I can put on a green shirt and my skin will respond in such a way that I could pass as a leprechaun myself. In college, I learned the celebratory act of drinking green beer, and lots of it. Never during these times in my life was food a part of the recognition and celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, nor was St. Patrick himself for that matter. As an adult, I have learned that food is, in fact, a fundamental part of the celebration. While corned beef and cabbage are thought to be an Irish tradition on St. Patrick’s Day...
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” joyfully echoes from the radio, and it is!
However, they failed to mention that it is also the busiest, most hectic and quite honestly, the most stressful time of the year as well. When the stress of it all becomes too much, it’s important to take a deep breath and step away. A quiet, peaceful day on the farm is the best remedy for holiday stress. Please join us at White Oak Pastures’ General Store Open House in downtown Bluffton, GA on Sunday, December 16, 2018, from 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.
It happens. Every. Single. Year. We blink, and here comes Thanksgiving, approaching faster than the previous year, and the rest of the year is history! White Oak Pastures has so much to be thankful for on any given year, but particularly this year with hurricanes Irma and Michael ravaging through our little town of Bluffton and the surrounding areas. We were not left unscathed, but we endured both, and for that, along with a number of countless blessings, we are thankful.
