The farm and ranch families of Oklahoma Farm Bureau

Photos and stories by Dustin Mielke, Hannah Davis and Brianne Schwabauer ural Oklahoma is teeming with life. To a casual observer traversing our state’s rural highways, roads and paths, there may not be much activity visible from the road on any given day. But rest assured, there’s a veritable buzz of activity happening on farms and ranches as the rhythms and cycles of nature play out daily. The Oklahomans responsible for stewarding the ebbs and flows of agricultural life take their responsibility to the land and their livestock seriously. That is why we celebrate outstanding 16 — Oklahoma Country

Oklahoma farm and ranch families. The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee’s Farm and Ranch Family Recognition program recognizes nine outstanding agricultural families – one from each OKFB district – who uphold the best traditions of our state’s agricultural and rural heritage. These families help make our rural communities vibrant by taking an active interest and role in towns across our state. They responsibly raise food and fiber for their fellow Oklahomans with an eye on ensuring our natural resources

are cared for and can be passed down to future generations. They raise their families in the wide-open spaces of our state, teaching lessons that will enable their children and grandchildren to continue the tradition of shaping our world – regardless of whether they stay on the family operation or take these life lessons past the farm gate. OKFB is proud to share the stories of these nine farm and ranch families who are the foundation of our state and our organization.
