Will Harris of White Oak Pastures - How to think about Food Systems Differently - Episode 87

This week I sit down with the amazing Will Harris from White Oak Pastures. Will is a pioneer in the Regenerative Farming movement and has managed to build something very special in Blufton Georgia; a Carbon Negative Farm that produces some of the highest quality meat on the planet whilst treating the animals as humanely as possible. White Oak Pastures has not only managed to restore the land, but it has also managed to provide jobs and stimulate the economy in Blufton itself, and so restoring a once struggling community. We talk about what it means to be a true steward of the land, the problems with chemicals and industrial farming, the challenges a regenerative farm faces, and how we fix the environmental problems that we have created by interfering with the natural cycles of life. There is so much in this Podcast, I strongly encourage anyone that gives a damn to listen. Be educated, be aware, and be inspired. Huge thanks to Will for taking the time.

  • Pharos Fit Rewind: High Performance Hypertrophy

    40:19
    Welcome back to the rewind podcast series, going back over our favorite podcasts over the years. This podcast is on what I call high-performance hypertrophy. This came about from my love of bodybuilding and CrossFit, wanting to get the best of both worlds, build muscle, look good, feel good, and still feel capable and athletic while still focusing on some aesthetic stuff. So I basically combined a lot of bodybuilding exercises with a lot of CrossFit-type exercises, and it basically evolved into something called high-performance hypertrophy. And a lot of the programs that I write, especially for Build fall into this category. This program is now available to all those on the Limitless Challenge. We cover why it exists, who it’s for, what it requires, and what can be expected from it. It’s a tough program for tough people ... are you ready for it?Connect with Piet and PharosPiet's InstagramPharos InstagramPharos Mountain Lodge InstagramWebsiteSign Up HereWelcome to the Pharos Fit Podcast.
