One of our favorite things to do is to spend an afternoon with my friends at a local agritourism stop exploring the outdoors! Agritourism is widespread throughout south-central Oklahoma with a variety of activities to choose from. From pumpkin farms, to trail rides and hay mazes to ranches, here are some of my favorite destinations to experience agritourism.
Arbuckle Trail Rides: Grab your cowboy boots and hit the trails in the Arbuckle Mountains! At Wolfe Ranch in Sulphur, you can take a relaxing horseback ride on a guided tour through the beautiful mountain scenery.
Baker’s Acres and Baker Pecans: Bring your family to Baker’s Acres in Tishomingo for fun on the farm! In October you can pick out the perfect pumpkin, but during the winter months you can stop by for delicious homegrown pecans!
Pennington Creek Hunting Club: Take a trip to Whitetail Deer country in Mill Creek! This beautiful hunting club has over 9,400 acres of privately owned ranch land with for hunting deer, hog, turkey, or bass fishing.
Magnolia Blossom Ranch: Meet these cute animals at the Magnolia Blossom Ranch in Newcastle, Oklahoma. This ranch is also a great place for a fun event. From yoga to wine and pallets, you can enjoy every event with the alpacas.
Minco Honey: Satisfy your sweet tooth at the Minco Honey Festival in December! You can tour the Ross Honey Plant, Oklahoma’s largest honey processing facility that was opened in 1935 and try all the sweet honey!
