I have a passion for local agriculture. As a local producer I love to help people meet local farmers and ranchers and take control of where their food comes from. This is by no means an exhausted list as there are dozens, if not hundreds, of ranches in Oklahoma that can provide your family with quality food.
It can be daunting and overwhelming to buy a half or a whole beef or pork. Eating that cost at once is a huge financial commitment, and it can be difficult to find the physical space for the meat or find friends or family willing to split it. However, it’s worth the effort and financial investment. It can be a great gift as well. The biggest take away is buying in bulk and directly from a rancher/ farmer as you get filet mignon at hamburger prices. If it’s custom cut, you can get everything just how you like it!

Nikki and Rodger, have been raising high quality Oklahoma beef, they specialized in dry aged beef shipped from their ranch to your door. They also have an adorable market on their ranch where you can shop their beef, ranch goods, and other locally made products.

Dugan Farms is located in Guthrie, OK. They carry a variety of bundles, and meats. They also have variety of ways to pick up your meat.
Another great way to source local meat is by purchasing a market animal from a 4Her or FFA student, you fill your freezer and you can help a kid in agriculture out. It’s a win win.
