Parkhurst Pumpkin Patch – Even though it isn’t fall, you will be able to get the feel for how much fun happens every year at this well-developed farm. Owner Paula Parkhurst will talk about traffic flow, activities, school groups, weather concerns and how to diversify into other seasons like Christmas!
Tres Sueños Vineyard and Winery - This tour stop covers three Agritourism categories! The vineyard won’t be bearing fruit yet, but you will be able to enjoy the products of the land during a free wine tasting. You can also purchase wine to take home with you. The group will tour the overnight stay accommodations that overlook the vineyard and learn about event planning and management while inside the venue spaces used for weddings, reunions and corporate events.
116 Farmstead Market – Located in historic downtown Luther, just off of Route 66, this charming restaurant offers a delicious menu of primarily locally-sourced items in addition to a market with Made In Oklahoma products. During lunch, the owner and manager will start a conversation about rural economic development and their efforts to revitalize their historic town.
Come prepared to shop! Products will be available for purchase at several stops (you may want to bring a cooler for perishable items).
Each stop will involve walking outdoors, so dress for the day's weather.
