If there is one thing that we southerners have in common, it’s that we love “good ole southern cookin’.” It was only a matter of time before White Oak Pastures added their own “Taste of the Town” to Bluffton, Georgia, which was easy considering there is no other place to dine in Bluffton, Georgia. What started out as a place for the employees to eat lunch every day is now our Dining Pavilion that serves lunch to our employees, our guests, tour groups, and friends from all over the United States. We cook what we grow and raise, right here on our farm, and our condiments and dressings are homemade. We southerners are “meat and potatoes” kind of folks. But, we don’t want to exclude our vegetarian friends, so we have a homemade vegetarian quiche that will undoubtedly do the trick.
|The Harris Family saying, above our kitchen, reminds us all of the hard work that worked up our appetites.|
During lunch, we have our daily specials, buffet items, and our standard menu items, but our “standard” menu items are anything but that. Our Cheese Plate appetizer includes cheeses and brie from our friends at Thomasville Tomme-Sweet Grass Dairy in Thomasville, GA, surrounding our pickled items picked straight from the organic garden on our farm! For your little ones, we have a “Calf Burger” and homemade baked steak fries. For those of you that aren’t scared to eat “outside the box” we have our “Farmer John Burger” that is named after our own John Benoit, the Director of Livestock. This “bad boy”, the burger, not John, is made with our grassfed beef, bacon, fried egg, rosemary-garlic aioli, greens and American Cheese, and yes, we dare you! We also have our own WOP’R, made with our grassfed beef, but with grilled onions, bacon, balsamic dressed greens, peanut butter….PEANUT BUTTER? Yes! and a WOP pasture-raised fried egg and Sweet Grass Thomasville Tomme. These are just a couple of our tempting burgers on our menu. These meals wouldn’t be complete without our southern sweet tea or lemonade, but if you’re feeling more spirited, we have an array of beer and wine to wet your whistle!

To top off the experience, you’ll have the opportunity to sit down and talk with the folks who raise, harvest, pack, and butcher your food. How’s that for an education? Fitted with picnic tables, the Pavilion is where we all eat together like family, so don’t be shy! There aren’t too many farms that give diners the chance to visit, eat, meet, greet, and lodge all on the same place their food is produced, so take advantage of this unique opportunity! So, come on up down, over…. or from wherever you are, to White Oak Pastures Dining Pavilion. It will be the first of many trips, I promise!
