St. Patricks Day. As a young child, the only thing I knew about St. Patrick’s Day was that if I didn’t wear green to school, I was going to get the fire pinched out of me. All. Day. Long. Lesson learned. As I got older, I learned that green was and still is, NOT my color. I can put on a green shirt and my skin will respond in such a way that I could pass as a leprechaun myself.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” joyfully echoes from the radio, and it is!
However, they failed to mention that it is also the busiest, most hectic and quite honestly, the most stressful time of the year as well. When the stress of it all becomes too much, it’s important to take a deep breath and step away. A quiet, peaceful day on the farm is the best remedy for holiday stress. Please join us at White Oak Pastures’ General Store Open House in downtown Bluffton, GA on Sunday, December 16, 2018, from 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.
It happens. Every. Single. Year. We blink, and here comes Thanksgiving, approaching faster than the previous year, and the rest of the year is history! White Oak Pastures has so much to be thankful for on any given year, but particularly this year with hurricanes Irma and Michael ravaging through our little town of Bluffton and the surrounding areas. We were not left unscathed, but we endured both, and for that, along with a number of countless blessings, we are thankful.

“What’s for dinner?” is a phrase that is heard in every household, probably every single day. Our culture is a busy one and it seems that healthy meals are few and far between because of that. One smart woman turned her personal challenge into a healthy, helpful business. Garnish & Gather was created by the amazingly ingenious Emily Golub in order to take the time-consuming planning and shopping out of meal preparation. Continue reading to be inspired by Emily, who found a creative and financially viable option in which to meet her needs and provide a service for others.
At White Oak Pastures, we are always looking for ways to provide our customers with an exceptional and unique shopping (and eating) experience. After all, how many farms do you know that raise, process and ship 10 species of livestock directly to the consumer….from the farm? Well, we do! And, we couldn’t be more proud of our vertically integrated model. Because of this integration, we are able to get a bit more creative than most.
