An important message from a Regenerative Farmer to Concerned Consumers:
Do you believe in Climate Change?
Most thinking people do.
Do you worry about how climate change will impact future generations?
Most compassionate people do.
Do you wish that there was an action, that you could do from the comfort of your home, to cease contributing to climate change and even help to mitigate its incredible ongoing damage?
There is, if you are willing to take action on it.

Did you know it's National Egg Day? We're not exactly sure how to celebrate, but we think we'll probably cook up some pastured eggs our favorite way for breakfast (Sunny side up? Scrambled? Poached? Hard boiled? Hard to decide, so we might make them all).
National Egg Day, of course, makes us think about our birds and everyone who works with them at White Oak Pastures. Our pastured poultry staff is the largest field crew on the farm - with good reason.
At White Oak Pastures, we are home to many different species of livestock, but we raise five species of poultry alone: chicken, turkey, duck, goose, and guinea. While, logistically, this can be challenging, leveraging multiple species is central to our land management strategy - because they all have different impact on our pastures.
As Thanksgiving approaches, we are excited to share our hard work with our customers for the holidays. Our Certified Non-GMO, Certified Humane, GAP Step 5+ turkeys are never treated with steroids or antibiotics. Our birds are able to express their natural instincts as we raise them on pasture and they, in turn, contribute to land regeneration and rural revival. We take care of our animals and they take care of us. Read on to learn more about the life of a White Oak Pastures turkey.
Meet the two men who worked hard to give your holiday turkeys the best possible life on pasture. James Barbary and Trevor Cates are the field crew members who are primarily responsible for caring for our turkey flocks. James Barbary has worked at White Oak Pastures for over two years and two holiday turkey seasons. He brings his positive attitude and care for the birds to work every day, and we are so grateful that he has joined our turkey team.
“Before I came to White Oak, I was working at the chicken plant at Baker Hill, Alabama doing sanitation work. I’m originally from Colman GA, my daddy is originally from Bluffton. I moved back here about four years ago. I wanted to be closer to my family and I met a girl and got married. We moved into the family home. And I’ve been here ever...
We are excited to announce that our 2017 Holiday Turkeys are now available for pre-sale! These birds are very special to us, as they spend their time rebuilding the soil as they scratch and peck for bugs and grubs. White Oak Pastures turkey production began in 2010 with only 500 Holiday Birds, which were brooded just behind the processing abattoirs. It didn't take long for these great distance rangers to completely cover the area of our processing abattoirs. We learned these birds have a great desire to range much farther than our other poultry species. We have since relocated them to a different part of the farm! Our turkeys are Certified Non-GMO, Step 5+ in the Global Animal Partnership, Certified Humane and Animal Welfare Approved.
