The creator of the Abby J’s brand, “J” as in Jackson, is really quite remarkable. Southerners are typically touted as great cooks who are taught to cook family recipes handed down from generation to generation. At a very early age, Abby was blessed with the guidance and knowledge of her grandmother, whose influence impacted Abby’s path in life. Although Abby was a National Sales Manager in New York for a number of years, she returned to her roots and combined her passion for food origins, agriculture, and agritourism to become successful in a variety of endeavors. Read on and you’ll understand why Abby J's is so good!
White Oak Pastures raises American Chinchilla Rabbits that are characteristically large, hardy, and gentle animals with mature bucks weighing 9-11 pounds and does from 10-12 pounds. These rabbits produce large litters, have reliable mothering instincts, and reach market weight very quickly. Although our rabbits receive Non-GMO feed, most of their forage comes from fresh grasses and greens from our organic garden. We are currently holding on to our long-eared, buck-toothed colony to build our stock, but don’t worry, we’ll let you know when we’re ready to process them and ship them your way!

Learn about what it takes to bring our pastured eggs to your plate and meet the team who does all the work.
A hen's body creates a protective layer over the shell of an egg right before she lays it. This is called the “bloom”, which seals the shell pores and protects from bacteria entry. When eggs are washed, the "bloom" is removed which decreases shelf life and requires refrigeration. Read on to learn about washed vs. unwashed eggs.
