How do you celebrate President’s Day? It may not be the most well-known holiday of the year, but at White Oak Pastures, we’ll get behind any excuse to celebrate with a pasture-raised meal.

Free Range vs. Pasture-Raised: What’s the Difference?

Corinne Kocher

Cage-free, Free Range, pasture-raised, organic: poultry and eggs come advertised with a head-scratching number of “labels” and descriptions. Although these labels may sound similar, some qualifications are more regulated than others and they all indicate completely different levels of animal welfare.

Check out our comprehensive guide to understand the difference between Free Range vs pasture-raised vs cage-free, and what labels conscious consumers are choosing to purchase.

How To Perfectly Cook Grassfed Beef

Corinne Kocher

“How do I make grassfed beef tender?” is a question we hear a lot at White Oak Pastures. We’re proud of the animals we raise on our pastures, the carbon-sequestering land management methods we use, and the products we produce for our customers. But we also recognize that grassfed beef is, quite literally, a different animal to cook with in the kitchen.

Check out our guide to cooking with pasture-raised, grassfed beef, recipes included.

Slow-Roasted Whole Guinea Hen Recipe

Corinne Kocher

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.
