Cecil Burns describes working at White Oak Pastures as “fun”, which should not surprise anyone who has the pleasure of making his acquaintance. I’ve never seen Cecil when he didn’t have a smile on his face, teasing and laughing with other employees, but always working hard while doing so. He is always so helpful and thoughtful to others, and he certainly makes dining at the Pavilion a pleasure!
|Our Beecon Grind placed in the top 3 finalists in the Flavor of Georgia 2018 Meat & Seafood category.|
White Oak Pastures’ Grassfed Beecon Grind was one of the three finalists out of twelve competing in the Meat and Seafood category in the University of Georgia’s 2018 Flavor of Georgia Contest. The final round was held in Atlanta where Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture, Gary Black, designated March 20 as Flavor of Georgia Day. Judges evaluated entries in select categories based on their taste, commercial appeal, innovation, market potential, and Georgia theme.
On the southeast coast of Florida, there lies a small town by the name of Stuart, home of the innovative ecologist and preservationist-turned-chocolatier, Denise Castronovo.

After her parents told her “White Oak Pastures is right up your alley”, Laura McDonald updated her resume and personally handed it to Stokes Rodgers, when the main office was located at the processing plant. Laura said that Stokes looked at her resume, and in her amazingly accurate impersonation of Stokes, said ‘This needs to go to Jean’. Laura asked who Jean was and again, she imitated Stokes’ matter-of-fact reply saying “I’ll take care of it”, and he did. And funny enough, they now share an office.
