How to buy grassfed and pastured meat in bulk

It used to be very common to buy a whole, half, or quarter of an animal from a farmer you know and trust, and then enjoy having a convenient, steady supply of protein in the freezer. This tradition of buying meat in bulk is making a comeback, and we’d like to make the process a little less...

We’ve been called names

Over the years, we have accumulated a number of animal welfare and land stewardship certifications. 

Restoring productivity of overgrown forest through holistic animal impact

We all know a thing or two about grazing: basically, we think of livestock on pasture eating grass. Using holistic planned grazing, we can add biodiversity and shape the land to achieve a desired usage. Browsing, on the other hand, isn’t as well-known. Browsing is when livestock eat the leaves,...

Good news: We bought 250 acres of worthless land

Our chickens of the woods

Chickens were born to scratch and peck, which is exactly what they do at White Oak Pastures. Our chickens are completely unrestricted, and they could walk to Atlanta if they wanted to. This lifestyle is ideal for them, but it makes our job a heck of a lot harder. We think it is worth it, and our...

New kids on the farm

The business that we run is the most simple business in the world. We own land, and we own animals. We spend our days doing the right things for both.
