6 Reasons To Eat Pasture-Raised in 2020

Jenni Harris

With Thanksgiving and Christmas behind us, I begin reflecting on the year that has come and gone. There are always things I wish I had accomplished, but also those projects for which I’m proud to have completed. This valuable reflection allows me the opportunity to set goals (or resolutions) for the New Year. 

I hope while you all are planning your resolutions, you’ll consider committing to only eat pasture-raised meats and poultry. Even though there are more reasons than any of us could possibly count, I’ve put together my top 6 reasons to eat pasture-raised in 2020 below.

Gourmet Grinds: For Your Convenience

Jenni Harris

 

Eloise Harris, mother to Will Harris, used to talk at length about the generational loss for cooking at home. Growing up, I remember her saying “I can cook everything from a cow from the nose to the tail. My daughter-in-law can cook hamburgers, roasts and a few steaks, and my grandchildren, well, they are doing good to simply brown some ground beef for a taco.” While none of us liked to hear her talk about our inability to cook, we all knew she was right.

White Oak Pastures’ online store is dedicated to serving the needs of our customers. Whether it’s special seasonings or pet chews or leather bags, we want to be sure that we are stocked to be the one-stop-shop for humane, regenerative products. Our newest addition is a category wholly dedicated to Gourmet Grinds.

Our New Look With A Refreshing Brand

Jenni Harris

Many of our customers know that our passion is raising livestock on pasture in a way that regenerates the land. Witnessing animals execute what they are meant to do, which is roam our pastures, leaving it richer and more suitable than it was, is something that’s deeply rooted in the history of our farm. In the 1990’s, my Dad, Will Harris, learned that there are passionate customers who care about the same things he does: the land and the animals. After years of research, Dad was convinced he had to build a processing abattoir for our livestock and create a brand.

WOP Inventory Launch

Jenni Harris

The Harris family has been raising livestock on pasture for 151 years. Building on farm processing abattoirs brought on a steep education curve that we are still riding. When the red meat processing plant opened, we had two customers: Whole Foods Market and Publix Supermarket. We were, and are still grateful, for these grocery relationships, as they gave us the volume we needed to operate our processing abattoir. Whole Foods bought whole carcasses and Publix bought ground beef, which made keeping track of inventory pretty simple. We had two skus, and sold 100% of what we processed by the week’s end.

Over the past 5 years, we have worked hard to diversify our customer base. We have welcomed several new wholesale distributors, direct chef and market relationships, and focused much effort...

Holiday Turkeys Available For Pre-Sale

Jenni Harris

We are excited to announce that our 2017 Holiday Turkeys are now available for pre-sale! These birds are very special to us, as they spend their time rebuilding the soil as they scratch and peck for bugs and grubs. White Oak Pastures turkey production began in 2010 with only 500 Holiday Birds, which were brooded just behind the processing abattoirs. It didn't take long for these great distance rangers to completely cover the area of our processing abattoirs. We learned these birds have a great desire to range much farther than our other poultry species. We have since relocated them to a different part of the farm! Our turkeys are Certified Non-GMO, Step 5+ in the Global Animal Partnership, Certified Humane and Animal Welfare Approved.

Land, livestock, and the pursuit of a new logo

Jenni Harris

Selling premium, value-added meat and poultry to consumers requires a good amount of marketing, which is not something that comes naturally to us here at White Oak Pastures. Fonts, color schemes, photos and logo designs weren’t handed down from previous generations like land stewardship and livestock husbandry. But, as we’ve done with so many changes during our rapid growth, we adapted to and embraced this new component: logo design.
