Oklahoma Heritage Farm Prepares for Fall Festival — The Maze is Ready!

Oklahoma Heritage Farm is located near Vera between Bartlesville and Tulsa on Highway 75.  It is the homeplace, family farm, store and project of Mike and Margaret Snow.  Recently an article was written about them by Susan Albert in Bartlesville Examiner Enterprise.

Mike and Margaret Snow are carrying on the lifestyle of their five-generation family. Like their parents and grandparents before them, they work the soil, grow the crops, raise the farm animals and provide for themselves.

We were “self-sustaining” before the term became popular, Margaret Snow said.

With the Oklahoma Heritage Farm Store, situated on acreage south of Ramona off U.S. Highway 75, the Snows have opened up their home and farm as a way to share the wealth of homegrown heirloom produce, homemade goodies and gifts and decor that depict the diverse heritage of Oklahoma.

“We feel like we live the good life and want to share that with people,” said Snow, who acknowledged they work long hours in the garden, she cooks every day, and they don’t have a computer in their home.

“We love to work,” she said. “We’re not non-progressive; we like it that way.”

They grow heirloom varieties — the same seed they sell in the store, and they grow it as organically as possible. They sell what is in season from their own backyard and don’t bring in any produce from other vendors. Right now it’s the early vegetables and greens, she said. Later, they will have summer vegetables plus fruit.

What they don’t sell from the garden they preserve — in a jar, in the freezer or in a dehydrator. The Snows also give away a lot of produce to the church, neighbors or elderly who may need fresh produce.

doTERRA for Healthy Living – Essential Oils for Natural Health Care

I keep trying to figure out how to share with my friends the wonder of essential oils.  OK, I’ve always loved perfumes and fragrances, but I never understood how interconnected the senses are and how powerful the stimulation of pure essential oils could be.  I have used them to enhance breathing, relax, treat warts, reduce blood pressure, for serenity, and for mood elevation.

doTERRA Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend to Help Manage Appetite, Hunger, Stomach, Mood

Many of you know that I recently became a distributor for dōTERRA essential oils primarily because of my scientific background, love of natural health products and wonderful fragrances too. I have been absolutely amazed at all the ways these oils might improve our lives but they don’t help anyone left in the bottle. So I am trying various things and reporting the results here. If you want to sign up to be a distributor or just have questions drop me a note or follow the links under the dōTERRA tab at the top of my home page ^^^

So this week I went to the doctor and had gained a few pounds. Back at the house I discovered that I had some Slim & Sassy oil and had never put it to the test. I dropped 8 drops in my water bottle and swished it around and voila the most refreshing citrusy blended water to drink between meals. Note to self — keep this bottle of oil handy and put the drops in each bottle of water as opened or as served in a restaurant.  One step closer to healthy living!  But you have to use the oils to see the results~


Here is a direct link to order online >>>

Slim & Sassy®
Metabolic Blend dōTERRA®’s Slim & Sassy® Metabolic Blend is a proprietary formula of 100% pure CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils designed to help manage appetite between meals.
