In the last 25 years, Will has evolved the farm from a commoditized, industrialized, centralized, monoculture cattle operation to a regenerative, high animal welfare, diversified livestock farm that is rebuilding their village of Bluffton, Georgia.
White Oak Pastures pasture raises and hand butchers cattle, hogs, sheep, goats, chickens, guineas, ducks, rabbits, and turkeys. They also produce organic vegetables, pastured eggs, pet treats, leather products, and many other products that allow a nearly closed loop system.
One Family, One Farm, Six Generations
Will will discuss the 150-year-journey of White Oak Pastures from a sustainable family focused farm, to an industrialized, commoditized, centralized operation, and back to a regenerative high animal welfare focused and diversified vertically integrated multi-species family farm.
