Family Farm Day!
Join us for a fun day celebrating our agricultural heritage in the Cherokee Strip! Family Farm Day gives families the opportunity to experience hands-on farming activities, antique tractors, pie making and farm animals. Come shell corn and grind wheat, tool leather and learn how to can vegetables, these are just a few of the activities families will experience at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center’s Family Farm Day annual event celebrating the proud farming heritage that built Northwest Oklahoma! A beans and cornbread lunch will be served by donation and at 1 p.m. a pie auction will be held to benefit the Heritage Center's school programs.
Admission is $6 for adults, $3 for students and children 5 and under are free.
Family Farm Day is generously sponsored by:
Today in the state of Oklahoma only 17% of families live on a working farm, nationally, only 2%. Although we live in an area where farming is the fabric of life, fewer and fewer children are exposed to how food is grown and processed.
Family Farm Day provides a fun way for children and their parents to experience the workings of a farm in days gone by while also relating that experience to the advanced technologies used in farming today.
Other event activities include pumpkin decorating, cow milking, calf roping and quilting. Furever Friends will also have an adoption booth on the grounds.
