Unlike the overcrowded inhumane conditions of industrially farmed pigs, which makes up 97% of the dry, tasteless pork sold today, White Oak Pastures’ pigs forage on lush pastures and pecan groves, while also enjoying farm fresh eggs, nuts and grains. These accommodations coupled with the mixed heritage breed of Tamworth, Berkshire, and Gloucester Old Spot result in the most astonishingly healthy, full-flavored ham you will ever enjoy.
Award-winning farmer Harris is a legitimate star, not just in his native Georgia, but around the world, where his iconic work in conservancy is continually celebrated. Troubled by the shortcuts and conventional, chemical-driven direction he was seeing within his industry, Harris radically transformed his 150-year-old farm 20 years ago by taking it back to the basics. Today, White Oak Pastures stands as a leader of zero-waste, regenerative, symbiotic farming.
