Finding Gems & Sharing Them – OK Heritage Farm – Fall Festival Brings A-Mazing Fun for Entire Family to Ramona (Bartlesville Area)

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.

NRA endorsements for key Oklahoma Senate races in Republican primary – Daniels, Dahm, Loveless

NRA Endorsements state by stateHighlighting some of the most important senate races across the state here in this post but you can see all the endorsements from the NRA here >>>.

Oklahoma State Senate District 29 – Julie Daniels (Aq)

Oklahoma State Senate District 33 – Nathan Dahm (A+)

Oklahoma State Senate District 45 – Kyle Loveless (A+)

 

NRA endorsement for Julie Daniels SD29

NRA endorsement for Nathan Dahm SD33

NRA endorsment for Kyle Loveless SD45

The NRA rarely goes against an incumbent with a good rating because they have an actual track record of voting rather than simply answers on a questionnaire. (Aq = rating on questionnaire / A+ includes voting records, ? = failure to respond) so when voting records are available that is factored into the endorsement rating.

Senate District 29 Event with Daniels and Oliver via Examiner Enterprise Report

By Nathan Thompson

Julie Daniels and Jean Oliver, both Republican candidates for state Senate District 29, answered questions Monday night during a forum sponsored by the Green Country Republican Women’s Club, held in the Bartlesville City Council chambers.

The event was moderated by Charlie Taraboletti of Bartlesville Radio, and was standing room only. The candidates answered questions ranging from the struggling state budget, education and criminal justice reform.

Oliver said she was very frustrated with the current legislative session. As a former teacher and wife of a physician, she was troubled with the budget cuts to public schools and health care.

“I’m not a politician, but I decided to run for office when I read about all the problems that Oklahoma was having with its finances,” Oliver said. “I’m especially concerned about the situation with education. I was approached by several educators because they want this issue addressed. We cannot continue to cut and cut and cut educational funding. Oklahoma has cut more funding in education, more than 23 percent, than any other state in the nation.”

Daniels said she wanted to run for office to restore the conservative platform of liberty and to stop federal mandates that have been brought onto state government.

“I very much believe in the strength of our representative form of government,” Daniels said. “I believe in individual freedom and opportunity. I believe in the strength of the family as the basis of the entire network. I am dismayed, disheartened and sometimes discouraged like so many of my conservative brethren in how much we have lost of these freedoms, mainly from the encroachment of the federal government upon states.”
