What if renewable energy was not just sustainable, but was also regenerative?

White Oak Pastures’ new partnership with Silicon Ranch Corporation is bringing regenerative land management to almost 2,400 solar farm acres in Southwest Georgia. White Oak Pastures will be implementing holistic planned livestock grazing on the solar farm to create a carbon sink, restore biodiversity and soil health, and grow the social and economic benefits of this clean energy project.

Will’s Wisdom: Australian Fires and Imported Grassfed Beef

Will Harris

Fact: American grassfed beef ranches have lost most of their profitability in the last few years.

I have found it necessary to rethink encouraging new producers to embrace our regenerative cattle production model. I now feel compelled to warn them to be very careful.  This is because we veteran American grassfed beef producers have recognized that "Greenwashed" foreign product is destroying our margin structure.   

Because I have been publicly vocal on the topic of unlabeled imported grassfed beef, I am now being asked if the Australian fires have lessened the amount of foreign product that we are competing with.

Corinne Kocher

We’re proud of the sausage we make on our farm. There is a noticeable difference between White Oak Pastures organic, small-batch, pasture-raised sausage, and common commodity sausage that you would find in the average grocery store aisle.

Will’s Wisdom: Greenwashing Is Destroying The Regenerative Farming Movement

Will Harris

Twenty five years ago, I began slowly transitioning our family farm from the industrial cattle farm that it had become. Today we pasture-raise cattle, sheep, hogs, poultry, goats, rabbits, honey, eggs, organic vegetables, and a lot of the other products that the Abundance of Nature provides when her cycles are functioning properly.
