Upgrading To A Compostable Cooler

White Oak Pastures Team

We are proud to announce that Green Cell Foam Insulated Shipping Coolers are now available to protect White Oak Pastures' frozen and perishable products during shipment. The perfect combination of sustainable technology, thermal performance and shock protection, these shipping coolers have thermal protection equal to polystyrene inch-for-inch.

Manufacturing Green Cell Foam requires 70% less energy and produces 80% less greenhouse gases than petroleum based foams. It is also backyard compostable, biodegradable and water soluble (ASTM D6400 and BPI certified). The primary raw material is U.S. grown, non-GMO cornstarch, an annually renewable resource.

Our Waste Is Not Wasted

Monica McLendon

 

White Oak Pastures is a multifaceted regenerative farm raising ten different species for meat, with cattle and poultry as the largest in number. Only 55% of the cow is made up of cuts that are marketable. Because we are committed to adhering to our no-waste tenet, we were motivated to find ways in which to use the parts of the animals that aren’t consumed. Jacqueline DeWitt, our composting manager, explains the aspects of our composting program:

“In our system, we render fat from the cattle to make soaps and salves, sell trim to processors, tan hides, make pet chews, and feed our guardian dogs. Even after all of these measures are taken to use all parts, there are still 4 million pounds of animal remains each year that we can not process or use. So, we do the next best thing: We...

While eggs are available through our online store and Atlanta Whole Foods locations, the farm is also following our zero-waste doctrine and treating our pigs with healthy, pasture-raised, calcium-rich eggshells which are not perfect for sales.

Pet Chew Department

Amber Harris

We love our composting operation that allows us to turn unsellable parts into something that enriches our land years down the road. Therefore, we made it our mission to figure out how to save, dehydrate, and sell some of these extra parts and pieces to our most loyal customers.

Our Pet Chew Department came to life quickly and in full-force! We now save tracheas, esophagus’, feet, noses, ears, etc. from all 10 species raised and processed on our farm, turning them into dehydrated chews. Our customers range from large pet stores in New York, all the way down to small boutiques in Miami, where your average animal lover just wants the best for their pup.

White Oak Pastures Raw Pet Grinds

At White Oak Pastures, we love our pets. Most of our employees have at least one pet! We also love the spoiled life our farm lets us provide for our animals. Pets are family to us, and we want to feed them the same healthy food we feed ourselves. In addition to the vast array of pasture raised, sun-dried pet chews we give our animals, we can feed our pets an all natural, raw diet from our humanely raised 10 species of livestock. White Oak Pastures has no shortage of diet variety for your furry friends, and we can make it all easily accessible by shipping it right from our pastures to your doorstep. We are excited about the growing interest in returning pets to raw diets. We are proud to provide pet owners a range of raw food options. Our products come with the peace of mind that the...
