Immerse yourself in ag this summer in Claremore...

Explore nature and pick your own blueberries at Canyon Berry Farms in Claremore. You pay for what you pick so stay as long as you'd like! Claremore is the home to Swan Brothers Dairy. They offer spring/summer tours of the dairy to get backside views of the farm, milking parlor and cheese/milk processing. Before you go I highly recommend getting some cheese curds. They are delicious and a great snack! If you plan your trip right you can head out to Moore's Fish Farm for their monthly Fish Fry dinner. It happens the third Friday & Saturday of each month. Enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet that has Fried Catfish, BBQ Pork Shoulder, BBQ Sausage & Bologna, Beans & Cornbread, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, Corn, Cole Slaw, Potato Salad, Fries & Hushpuppies, Homemade Tartar and Cocktail Sauce, and lots of desserts!


Other great agri-tourism activities available include visiting Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch, Shepherds Cross and Blue Coyote Winery. The Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch is the homestead where Will Rogers was born. It's still a working cattle ranch with longhorns, horses, goats, donkeys and a variety of other critters moseying around. You can tour the home and enjoy the beautiful views of Oologah Lake from the bluffs. Shepherds Cross is a working sheep farm located just north of Claremore on Historic Route 66. They have a farm museum, garden tours, Shepherd's Gift Shop, farm animals you can pet and interact with, and a wool processing mill where you can view the process of turning wool into yarn. Blue Coyote Winery is a small winery and vineyard located in Adair, Oklahoma, not far from Shepherds Cross. They have a tasting room where you can sample and purchase a variety of wines made right there on-site. 


Other activities you can try are horseback riding at Oologah Lake. There are riding trails and Lakeside Trail Riding will guide you on your journey. Pick your trip whether you want to take a short ride or spend all day. The Nut House south of Claremore is housed in a log cabin next to pecan orchards. You can find a variety of homemade goodies, fresh nuts and fudge, lunch from the deli and more.
