The Fall 2022 issue of Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s Oklahoma Country magazine is now available online. The latest issue is also headed to Farm Bureau members’ mailboxes around the state.
Our Fall 2022 issue features Triple S Farms near Hydro, where the Slagell family grows watermelons – along with many other crops – that are enjoyed by consumers around the country. We also feature Okmulgee County Farm Bureau member Tim Taylor, an agriculture education instructor who teaches non-traditional students to help them find a place in agriculture to learn and grow.
The magazine also features columns, the latest news and updates on OKFB events, a preview of our 2022 annual meeting and more.
The Fall 2022 issue is available on the Publications page of our website or at the bottom of this page, and the full content list is outlined below.
