Walker Holmes, the Makerspace Manager at White Oak Pastures, was born and raised in Adairsville, Georgia. He discovered White Oak Pastures while in high school and took every opportunity to visit and work when his school schedule allowed. During this time, he created tallow product recipes, developed leathercraft designs, and helped train new employees within the tallow and leather departments. In December 2020, he graduated from Reinhardt University with a Bachelor’s in Music Education. He hopes to continue to develop and explore his love for creating during his time with us.
