Connect to Creativity
Myers Family Farm is a 3rd generation farm located in the “green country” of Northeast Oklahoma. Originally established as a cattle ranch in 1963, we have grown to include many species of livestock. While our main focus is Cashmere goats and Murray Grey cattle, we also raise American Guinea Hogs, silkie chickens, donkeys, livestock guardian dogs, and one llama.
We are blessed to offer a farm experience to many families throughout the year with our Airbnb stay in the original ranch house. It is our mission to allow guests to reconnect to nature and to experience the source of food and textiles in our lives.
Available Services & Activities:
Airbnb Stay, Farm Tours, Photo Shoots, Honey, Beef, Pork, and MORE!
Meet the Farmers
Gene & Heidi Dickens
Heidi Dickens is a trained medical doctor, graduating from OU Medical. Heidi has 3 children; Hana, Bella, and Cael. She got into Cashmere farming back in 2016 when the Dickens' family moved to their family's farm. Gene & Nell Myers bought the farm in 1963 and it transitioned to the Dickens' in 2016.
We initially bought cashmere goats to foster our oldest daughter's love of spinning. We soon realized how much our whole family enjoyed raising goats.
Adequate fencing of pastures to ensure animal safety from predation.
If you commit to building the correct infrastructure for raising goats, you can greatly increase your herd size with the same level of management input.
Is Farming a Business or a Lifestyle?
It takes a lifestyle commitment to live in the country whether or not you are farming. Making a business of farming just makes it more worthwhile.
What are the biggest changes you implemented on your farm?
We have changed the majority of the fencing to welded wire from barbed wire. We have also crossed fenced many pastures so that we can rotate herds more frequently. We are planning to add fencing and ponds to the more remote acreage of our property to better utilize the land. We are also planning to overseed the pastures for greater forage diversity to decrease our dependance on hay.
