Shepherd's Cross, located near Claremore, is a scenic retreat from life's hectic pace featuring 120 acres of rolling hills, pasture and forested land, as well as a healthy dose of English countryside flair. The reproduction of the historic 1920s farm home and Amish built red gambrel roof barn and silo give a true taste of historic American farm country. The extensive Bible Gardens and sheep gracing the pastures make for a picturesque day in the country.

Shepherd's Cross is a working farm and Christian mission. The farm is a working sheep farm that hosts a variety of other animals and horticultural commodities. There is a picnic area and Shepherd's Shop, a specialty gift shop featuring many woolly and sheep related crafts and gifts.  Shepherd's Cross also gives wagonrides. A small concession stand is available and the property is handicap accessible.  

The farm hosts The Farm Museum and Educational Silo, as well as a working wool mill. Tours of the farm, including the wool mill, museum, petting the animals and the Bible Garden are available. The farm is Animal Welfare Approved and grass fed-finished. Shepherd's Cross sells specialty meats, wool products, yarns, fiber and hand crafts.

Tours and drop by visitors are welcome. Bus tours and large tours are required to schedule activities in advance.
