I (Lisa) started the Living Kitchen Farm & Dairy in 2005 after a lifetime in the restaurant business in Seattle. I came to Oklahoma to learn how to farm and decided to stay, to continue on with the great friendships I’d developed and to put what I learned into practice on my own farm.
I hosted the first farm table dinner in the dining room of my small house on a seven-acre farm near Heyburn Lake in the summer of 2006. In 2009 Linda joined me and we decided to lease the Oakley Farm in Depew, a 400-acre property with a rustic cabin hidden in the woods, built by hand by Shelby & Pam Oakley.
We’ve tried a variety of ways to make a living as farmers, but the one thing that endures is the farm table dinner tradition. People from all over Oklahoma and surrounding states have met our goats, walked the garden and sat at our table for a dinner prepared using ingredients from our farm or other local farms.
We extend to you our heartiest welcome to come to our table and eat. Come enjoy our agricultural cuisine of Oklahoma.
