Will Harris, III, represents the fourth generation of cattlemen that has owned and operated White Oak Pastures of Bluffton, GA. Established in 1886, White Oaks Pastures has come full circle in its management approach, from the traditional animal husbandry practices of the 19th century, to the factory farming practices of the 20th century, and to the regenerative land management and humane animal practices that Harris instituted in the 1990s. In so doing, the farm has received wide acclaim and recognition.
Harris has served as president of the board of directors of Georgia Organics, president of the American Grassfed Association, and was selected 2011 Georgia Business Person of the Year by the Small Business Administration.
