White Oak Pastures is Radically Traditional Farming. Every day, we butcher meat from animals raised in a regenerative manner using humane animal management practices. This is no easy task, but it is our passion. To operate our vertically integrated, zero-waste model, it takes 155+ caring people working together to accomplish a common goal: taking care of our land and our livestock.
White Oak Pastures is a Zero-Waste farm. We sell the meats and poultry we butcher on our farm to passionate consumers who care about the animals, land and the community. The hides from the cattle we slaughter are dried for pet chew rawhides or tanned and crafted into leather goods. The fat from our cattle is rendered down to create some of the most clean and pure tallow products available. The inedible viscera is composted to later be spread on our farm as rich organic matter to fertilize our soil.
White Oak Pastures is one of only a few Savory Hubs. The Savory Institute has begun establishing strategically placed hubs around the world in order to amplify their efforts to restore the grasslands. These hubs help empower people everywhere to heal the land using properly managed livestock.
White Oak Pastures is rebuilding the Bluffton Community. Rural communities like our village of Bluffton, Georgia had been the backbone of our culture. But, for the last two generations, they have been sinking into oblivion. This is because they were made irrelevant by the industrialized, centralized and commoditized farming system. In the last ten years, the impact of our farm on this small town of 100 people has been dramatic. We now employ 155+ good people who are eating, shopping and living in Bluffton.
