Last week, the White Oak Pastures farm family suffered through a direct hit from Hurricane Michael with sustaining winds up to 115 miles per hour. Will Harris shared that he has never witnessed a storm of this magnitude in Bluffton, Georgia in his entire life.
The livestock production staff, with the assistance from other farm departmental staff, worked endlessly in preparation to protect our livestock. Their tireless efforts paid off; however, we have incurred a substantial amount of loss. Although suffering from some livestock and structural damage, we are extremely grateful that our processing plants were strong enough to withstand Hurricane Michael.
