Many new products and services nowadays are marketed as convenient, catering to new consumer preferences about ease and accessibility - think meal kits, easy microwave dishes, fast food delivery. Most of our customers also appreciate convenience, but they are probably more interested in other aspects of food like eating responsibly, bearing in mind the impact of their choices on land, animals, and society. While there are limitless schools of thought when it comes to eating "responsibly," at White Oak Pastures we work hard to have a positive impact on our land, treat our livestock well, and support our employees. We hope you agree that our pasture-raised meats, grassfed tallow, handmade leather accessories, rawhide pet chews, and all the products of our zero-waste ethos qualify as...
White Oak Pastures is known for meat, for good reason - our farm is centered around using animals and their impact on pasture to regenerate land. Our grassfed beef and pasture-raised poultry, heritage pork, and other proteins are the backbone of our farm, and our business.
But while we are proud of the products we offer, we also always think about how our customers are going to eat them. More specifically, sometimes we think about breakfast: if we’re going to offer bacon, eggs, and sausage from White Oak Pastures, wouldn’t it be nice to round out breakfast with something like locally ground biscuit mix and jelly?
That’s why we’ve started carrying some new items in our Farm Store - items that complement what we’re producing on the farm, from producers who share some of our same values.
Cured meat has been around since 3000 BC, and we are so excited to add it to our offering for our customers. We partnered with The Spotted Trotter in Atlanta to develop 3 delicious Summer Salamis: Genoa, Black Pepper & Sorghum, Cured Chorizo. We’re sure you’ll love them! Using our pasture-raised pork and simple ingredients, we could not be more proud to have these available in our online store.
