White Oak Pastures
One Family, One Farm, Five Generations, 150 Years – A Full Circle Return to Sustainable Land Stewardship & Humane Animal Stockmanship
White Oak Pastures is a 150 year old multigenerational family farm that cooperates with nature to produce artisan products. We work hard to ensure that all of our production practices are Fair, Sustainable, and Humane. We never fail to conduct our business in an honorable manner, for the sake of our animals, our land, and our people who produce and consume our goods.
Our pastured poultry is completely unconfined in our pastures. They range freely all day, scratching, pecking and dust bathing in our pastures. They can choose to come into a mobile house to perch at night. They are effectively guarded from predators by our seven Great Pyrenees guardian dogs. The poultry, like our cattle and lambs, are slaughtered here in our on-farm USDA-inspected poultry abattoir. It is one of the of the very few in the country. Our chickens are our own proprietary heritage breed. We call them “T-Rex Reds,” because the atavistic behavior of these red chickens reminds us of Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaurs. Our turkeys are American Standard Bronze, which is also a heritage breed. We also raise Guinea Hens, Ducks and Geese on pasture.
