In 1946 Will Bell Harris attended a farmer meeting where the positive production impact of chemical nitrogen fertilizer was demonstrated. He fell in love, and chemical fertilizers
were used on every acre of White Oak Pastures lands for the next 50 years.
For the last 15 years the lands of White Oak Pastures have been increasingly holistically managed. Compost, cover crops, multi-species rotational grazing, and
other natural practices have been utilized.
THE RESULT: The organic matter in the soil has increased 10 fold.
Will Harris will discuss how White Oak Pastures is managed in a manner that attempts to emulate nature. We hope you will choose to come and spend this day with us.

PLEASE CHOOSE THE FARM STORE PICKUP TO AVOID THE SHIPPING CHARGE.
Regardless of what farm you purchase from, there is no such thing as free shipping. Shipping perishable product through the mail is expensive, regardless of how you spin it. We have a large following of customers who pick up orders from our local markets and On-Farm store. It doesn't seems fair to penalize these customers with inflated prices, just so we can get product to more distant customers cheaply.
White Oak Pastures is currently offering equalized shipping to those in a 3Day ground from our farm. At this point, this is how we handle the cost of all Ground Shipments:
$700 and higher= $89.95
If you live outside of a 3Day ground transit, the rates are generated by calculating the weight of the package and the distance to the address provided. Our customers have found that larger orders placed on a less frequent basis seem to be most efficient.
