Pardon me while I brag a little on my young cousin Jenni, daughter of first cousin Will (also shown here)on the Redding side. Jenni was picked for Georgia Trend “40 under 40” 2012 Best and Brightest. I totally agree:
Jenni Harris, 25
White Oak Pastures
“Could I call you back?” Jenni Harris asks. “I’ve got to give a goat a couple of shots.”
It’s not the kind of task most marketing managers undertake, but most probably are not fifth-generation stewards of a family farm, one increasingly known for environmentally sustainable production of grass-fed meats and poultry.
Harris has been plying her Valdosta State marketing degree by revamping White Oak’s website, where sales this year were “the fastest growing sector of our business,” she says. She has also started inroads into making White Oak agritourism-friendly – the farm now has a restaurant that serves lunch to the staff and general public. More importantly, Jenni gets to work with her dad, Will Harris, “a pioneer in the food movement,” but also “my absolute best friend.” – KR

Congratulations, Jenni! I am proud of all the Harris family.
Life is good, y’all!
