Our Core Values
We understand we aren't the only folks selling high-quality meat and poultry online. We do, however, want you to understand how the dollars you spend with our farm impact the world you live in. If you're just getting to know us, allow us to introduce ourselves…
White Oak Pastures is a six generation family farm in south Georgia, pasture-raising 10 species of livestock, eggs, organic vegetables, honey, and other things. We do this on almost 5,000 acres of land, in a radically traditional way.
Our farm centers around three core values:
We provide our animals with a peaceful, healthy life, and we are also committed to offering them a humane and dignified death.
We believe farming must not only be sustainable, it has to be regenerative to rebuild our soil and mitigate climate change.
Bluffton, Georgia (population: 103) had experienced the same decline familiar to many rural communities, and the impact of our farm's growth over the past ten years on this small town has been dramatic.
The Harris family prayer has always been, “We pray for plenty of good, hard work to do and the strength to do it.” Sometimes, it has taken all of our strength to do the work—but our family has been on this farm for a century and a half, and we are in it for the long haul.
If there was ever a time to know your farmer, it is now. There's never been more focus on the supply chain than there is right now, so when deciding who you want to support, we hope you'll choose us—Cowboys and Butchers working together on a 5,000-acre, six generation family farm, regenerating our land and producing food in a radically traditional way.
