A VISIT WITH WHITE OAK PASTURES
By Ethan Payne
In the Fall 2016 issue, Oxford American columnist John T. Edge profiles Will Harris of White Oak Pastures, a farm in Bluffton, Georgia. A radical voice of common sense in large-scale farming, Harris upturns both corporate agrarianism and idealistic pastoralism for a simple concept: responsibility. Edge writes, “Over the last twenty years, he has shifted from raising cattle on an industrial model and refocused the family operation on grass inputs, organic outputs, animal welfare, and minimal waste.” Hear more about White Oak Pastures from Harris himself in this short video, created for the Oxford American by Ethan Payne.
