Employee of the Month - Kyndall Bright

Monica McLendon

After moving back from Dothan, Alabama to live with her family, Kyndall Bright came to White Oak Pastures in the summer of 2016. When asked to describe White Oak Pastures, ironically, Kyndall’s reply was simply “family”, which seems to be a shared sentiment amongst those here on the farm. She recruited her sister, Kayla, who has also joined the White Oak Pastures team. Kyndall shares her story as she plans another move straight to Bluffton to be close to her extended family here on the farm!

Stop By The General Store For Some Abby J’s

Monica McLendon

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!

Fresh From The Farm

Monica McLendon

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!

The Bloomin' Eggs

Monica McLendon

 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
