They are an incredible example of what it means to manage holistically for realizing enduring social, environmental, and financial returns. White Oak Pastures will be an invaluable resource for farmers and land managers in their region.”
“We have been committed to Holistic Management for over two decades and we are very excited about being recognized as a Savory Institute Hub in the region. We believe this is the next step for increasing the adoption of Holistic Management in the region,” Will Harris, Owner of White Oak Pastures says. “The Savory Holistic Training brought us to an entirely new level.
