Bone broth has recently resurfaced as a hot commodity - literally - in the health realm, with particular presence in the paleo, keto, & carnivore circles. Despite the boom in popularity, bone broth is nothing new. Bone broth has been a staple item in several traditional cultures for centuries, and for good reason.
With Thanksgiving and Christmas behind us, I begin reflecting on the year that has come and gone. There are always things I wish I had accomplished, but also those projects for which I’m proud to have completed. This valuable reflection allows me the opportunity to set goals (or resolutions) for the New Year.
I hope while you all are planning your resolutions, you’ll consider committing to only eat pasture-raised meats and poultry. Even though there are more reasons than any of us could possibly count, I’ve put together my top 6 reasons to eat pasture-raised in 2020 below.
We’re proud of the sausage we make on our farm. There is a noticeable difference between White Oak Pastures organic, small-batch, pasture-raised sausage, and common commodity sausage that you would find in the average grocery store aisle.
Brian Sapp, our Director of Operations, has responded to customers who inquire about our sausage, how we make it, and why. Here’s an excerpt from one of Brian’s recent replies to a customer.
“How do I make grassfed beef tender?” is a question we hear a lot at White Oak Pastures. We’re proud of the animals we raise on our pastures, the carbon-sequestering land management methods we use, and the products we produce for our customers. But we also recognize that grassfed beef is, quite literally, a different animal to cook with in the kitchen.
Check out our guide to cooking with pasture-raised, grassfed beef, recipes included.
White Oak Pastures’ guineas live unconfined on pasture, hunting, pecking, scratching, and dust bathing. This leads to stronger, healthier, and, in our opinion, tastier birds. It also means these birds use their muscles, which should be taken into consideration when cooking a pasture raised animal. Applying some of the same principles for preparing grassfed beef, such as marinating or seasoning one to two days in advance, can help tenderize those more active muscle fibers.
Our guest blogger, Dr. Paul Saladino, "The Carnivore MD", is a leading authority on the science and application of the carnivore diet.
As a practicing medical doctor, I get this question a lot, with good reason:
Is grassfed meat really worth it?
The short answer is: yes! The long answer is still yes, when you consider the two important questions below.
No parabens, no phtalates, no artificial colors - the new line of White Oak Pastures soaps use only our grassfed, pasture-raised, regenerative beef tallow, processed on our very own farm.
When you use our Grassfed Tallow Foaming Soap and our Grassfed Tallow Body Wash, you know that it's made entirely of 100% fat from White Oak Pastures cattle - Certified Grassfed by the American Grassfed Association, Certified Humane, rated a Step 4 in the Global Animal Partnership, and Certified EOV by the Savory Institute.
It's been said that our skin is our body's largest organ, and we believe you should follow the same principles for skincare products as you do with the foods you consume.
While we love a slow beef roast as much as the next person, sometimes, convenient, on-the-go snacks keep us from getting a little… "hangry."
Introducing White Oak Pastures Meat Sticks: protein from your favorite farm, packed in a shelf-stable stick! Also called a snack stick, these portable snacks are good for on-the-go eating, whether that's on the trail, on the road, or on the farm.
White Oak Pastures Pasture-Raised Pork Sticks have just arrived to our online store, and we are currently developing a grassfed beef stick for later this fall.
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.
We believe our farm is one-of-a-kind. We’re fiercely proud of our vertically integrated system, which allows us to raise animals on pasture, slaughter and butcher them in our USDA-inspected on-farm abattoir, and ship them directly to the well-informed consumers who want to support this type of agriculture.
