Alongside White Oaks Pastures’ director of operations, learn to break down a whole hog like a professional pit master, carving out the shoulder, belly, tenderloins, spare ribs, ham, and even the leaf fat, which becomes lard for pies and other baked goods. After the demo, the folks from White Oak will cook up the pork so you can taste the pasture-raised, non-GMO difference.
WHITE OAK PASTURES
White Oak Pastures is a six-generation, 152-year-old family farm in Bluffton, Georgia, that takes pride in farming practices that focus on regenerative land management, humane animal husbandry, and the revitalization of the rural community. Through radically traditional farming, Will Harris, a fourth-generation cattleman, and 155-plus workers create products for the land, livestock, and village including meats, and leather. The company is proud of its zero-waste production system that makes use of each part of the animals that are pasture-raised and hand-butchered on the farm.
