Minco Honey Festival
Dec 02, 2017
Satisfy your sweet tooth at the Minco Honey Festival with pure Oklahoma honey. During this celebration of Nature's nectar, tour the Ross Honey Plant, Oklahoma's largest honey processing facility. At the plant, which opened in 1935, learn all about Oklahoma's official insect, the honey bee and honey production, then sample an impressive array of honey products and take home a sweet treat from the gift shop.
After the plant tour, stick around and enjoy a small town Christmas celebration, complete with Santa Clause, a craft show, kiddie tractor pull and honey bake-off. In addition to the honey plant, hourly tours of the Great Plains Cotton Gin and wind towers will be offered at this full day of family fun.
Known by locals as the land of milk and honey, Minco dairy producers will be set up on Main Street with free samples of local cheese, whole and chocolate milk. Guests can also meet Lucas Ross, the official "Son of a Beekeeper."
