Will Harris is a fourth-generation cattleman, who tends the same land that his great-grandfather settled in Bluffton, Georgia in 1866. Born and raised at White Oak Pastures, Will left home to attend the University of Georgia’s School of Agriculture. Will graduated in 1976 and returned to Bluffton where he and his father continued to raise cattle using conventional methods. He became disenchanted with these methods and in 1995, Will made the audacious decision to return to a regenerative farming system like his grandfather had 130 years before.
Since Will has successfully implemented these changes, he has been recognized all over the world as a leader in humane animal husbandry and environmental sustainability. Will is the immediate past President of the Board of Directors of Georgia Organics. He is the Beef Director of the American Grassfed Association and was selected 2011 Business Person of the year for Georgia by the Small Business Administration.
