Posted by Laura Mortelliti on Aug 16, 2017 4:20:11 PM

 If you have called White Oak Pastures with a product question, and reached our Customer Service Department, you have likely spoke with Sabrina Carnley, our Order Manager. Sabrina says she has “made lifelong friends and connections here” and loves that “everybody feels like a family- I love the small town feel of everything”. Sabrina fully embraced White Oak Pastures life, moving down to Bluffton after her husband was hired by the farm. Sabrina is married to Ryan, our Permaculture Manager, and lives with her four dogs in downtown Bluffton in one of the homes the farm has renovated.

Know Your Farmer - Nick Often- Cutting Room Breaker

Posted by Laura Mortelliti on Aug 3, 2017 12:14:22 PM

 Our Red Meat Processing Plant has the capacity to process 36 cows a day. We depend heavily on our skilled butchers who work in the Cutting Room. There are different jobs in the Cutting Room, from Breaker to Boxer. Nick Often may be the smallest person in the room, but he has an amazing work ethic and energetic spirit, and this gives him the drive to be one of our three Breakers in the Cutting Room. Nick feels his Cutting Room coworkers are like family. He explains, “In the morning, you can tell when everyone comes in, if they’re feeling good. We've been around each other so long we can tell”. Nick believes the farm has afforded him an exciting, dynamic way of life which has boosted his self esteem. “I’m one of the only people who has worked in all three areas- the field, the Poultry Plant and the Red Meat Plant. It’s really exciting to come from being nobody to being somebody up here. I get to show my skill. It motivates me”.

“I’d still be doing the same thing if I was the only person on earth”, says Graham Phillips, our Egg Production Manager, about his choice to be a farmer. “A lot of my interests come back to farming for the environment and farming for flavor.
