Peters Family Wheat Farm

Okarche, Oklahoma

Peters Farms is a family-owned operation that started when Michael Peters’ great-great-grandfather homesteaded a piece of land in central Oklahoma in the 1880s. Today, Michael farms with his father Fred Peters and his son Tyler. They grow hard red winter wheat and graze beef cattle on some of that crop over the late fall and winter.


Versatile, with excellent milling and baking characteristics for wheat foods like hearth bread, hard rolls, croissants and flatbreads. Hard red winter wheat is also an ideal wheat choice for some types of Asian noodles, general purpose flour and as an improver for blending.
