Oklahoma Country Fall 2022 Magazine Now Available Online

Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s Fall 2022 issue Oklahoma Country magazine is now available online. The latest issue is also directed to Farm Bureau member mailboxes statewide.

The latest issue of Oklahoma Country features an updated design and reworked content to better serve OKFB members and showcase the organization’s best content.

Our Fall 2022 issue features Triple S Farms near Hydro, where the Slagell family grows watermelons — along with many other crops — that are loved by consumers nationwide. We also feature Okmulgee County Farm Bureau member Tim Taylor, an agricultural education instructor who teaches non-traditional students to help them find a place in farming 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 list of content is outlined below.
