Bone broth provides an abundance of vitamins and minerals. Plus ‘wiggly jiggly’ bone broth is a great source of collagen. You can learn about the benefits of bone broth in our recent article on White Oak Pastures' blog. But, not all bone broths are equal. The items you use to make your bone broth (from the source of the bones to the other ‘off-cuts’ added) will make a difference in the nutrient composition and amount of ‘jiggle’ that results. Below you’ll find our favorite recipe for creating the ultimate, great-tasting, nutrient-dense, “wiggly jiggly” bone broth.
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.

We are grateful for the opportunity to provide you and your loved ones with a delicious pastured turkey for this special time of the year. Cooking a whole pasture-raised bird can be intimidating, and we want you to feel well-prepared to cook our turkeys this holiday season.Our turkeys are athletes. They spend their entire lives roaming our lush pastures, hunting, pecking, scratching, and dustbathing as nature intended. Because of their diet and exercise, our birds are lean animals. When cooking them, keep in mind they have less fat than commodity turkeys. We have found that cooking with a wet, slow heat yields a more tender turkey dish.

We'll just go ahead and say it: we believe White Oak Pastures’ Pasture-Raised Stewing Hens make the best stews, soups, and broths. Our ladies get plenty of activity, spending their days laying eggs, scratching the soil to forage for grub, and roosting in our pastures. Compared to hens on conventional farms, our unconfined, pasture-raised hens can produce higher levels of Vitamins A, E, and Omega Fatty Acids.
After a healthy, long life, our hens develop a lot of connective tissue from all their activity. Connective tissue is incredibly rich in vitamins, minerals, and flavor but not well-suited for fast preparations (like grilling), because it takes a long time to break down and become soft.
Mouth-watering Grilled Turkey Burgers topped with fresh pesto, spicy arugula, and creamy mozzarella cheese. How does that sound for The Big Game? The Super Bowl is upon us, but that doesn’t begin to describe what is around the corner. Some may travel to Atlanta on “The Midnight Train to Georgia” and be front and center watching the Georgia-born Gladys Knight perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” while MILLIONS will be tuning in from home. Either way, this traditional event will include food, booze, and fellowship while we enjoy this Battle for the Pigskin! There are those who are not football fans but let’s face it, they will watch specifically for the amusing, humorous, or sometimes heart-warming commercials and a headlining performance from Maroon 5 at halftime, joined by Big Boi,...
