Born and raised at White Oak Pastures, Will Harris practiced industrial agriculture for many years before becoming disillusioned. In 1995 he decided to transition to "radically traditional" farming. Today, he, two of his daughters and a team of over 100 strong are raising cattle, sheep, goats, hogs, poultry and rabbits using only sun, soil and rain to grow grasses for the animals to eat. Using regenerative land management, they rotate complimentary animal species side-by-side through the carbon-rich pastures. White Oak Pastures is a Savory Hub.
