Will Harris runs the Georgia farm his family has operated for 5 generations. His greatest accomplishment has been returning the farm to the Environmentally Sustainable and High Animal Welfare farming system that it was prior to America’s post-World War II farm industrialization.
After receiving his Animal Science degree from The University of Georgia, Will returned home to produce calves for shipment to industrial feedlots. In 1995, Will began transitioning his operation into the vertically integrated, multi-species farm that it is today. Now cattle, sheep, hogs, goats, and 5 poultry species are rotated through his pastures in the Serengeti Plains Rotational Grazing Model. They are hand butchered on the farm in USDA-inspected, zero waste red meat and poultry abattoirs. The farm has over 130 employees.
