Iberian Pastures First Slaughter, Butcher and Fresh Cuts Available

Posted by Laura Mortelliti on Feb 9, 2017 8:12:27 PM

The delicacy Iberian Ham (Jamón ibérico) is one of the highest quality cured hams in the world. Jamón ibérico is characterized by its long aging period (24-48 months), rich red color, ample marbling, and complex, sweet, nutty flavor. Iberian Ham must be sourced from the meat of only one breed of pig: Black Iberian Pigs. This breed is unique in its genetic ability to produce oleic acid-rich, exceptionally marbled meat.

We believe our farm is one-of-a-kind. We’re fiercely proud of our vertically integrated system, which allows us to raise animals on pasture, slaughter and butcher them in our USDA-inspected on-farm abattoir, and ship them directly to the well-informed consumers who want to support this type of agriculture.

White Oak Pastures goes non-GMO

Posted by Angela Huffman on May 12, 2016 2:00:00 PM

Recently, we were able to find a supplier to consistently deliver non-GMO feed to White Oak Pastures, and we are proud to announce that our poultry, eggs, pork, and rabbits are now non-GMO and verified by the Non-GMO Project.
