We're a grassroots campaign of family farmers, community leaders, and concerned citizens opposing State Question 777. SQ 777 wasn't proposed by farmers or ranchers -- it's designed to give free reign to corporate interests and Big Ag.
At its most recent meeting on Monday, July 11, the Edmond City Council formally passed a resolution opposing State Question 777 (Oklahoma Right to Farm). Resolution No. 18-16 lays out the reasons for opposition to the proposed question.
Letters to the Editor
Oklahoma is home to 78,000 farming operations that cover 34.2 million acres, more than three-fourths of the total area. Those farms produce more than $7.1 billion of products each year, more than $5.2 billion of that in livestock and poultry, making Oklahoma the 11th-largest livestock producing state and 23rd-largest ag-producing state.
When Oklahomans hear “right to farm,” we immediately think of family farms and generational growers of chickens, cows and crops. The three words undeniably elicit emotion tied to our pioneering spirit, heartland traditions and our deeply held democratic convictions about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
