"Our fall festivities offer an affordable outing for all ages to enjoy," said Dr. Glenn Orr, managing member of the Orr Family Farm.
...
Opened in 2004, Dr. Glenn Orr wanted to provide a safe, friendly and educational environment for school children and fun for people of all ages. With a history of success in business and agricultural, such as the Orr owned Celestial Acres Horse Farms, he thought opening an agri-tourism based business was not a stretch.

After pouring every ounce of energy into building a flourishing agritoursim business near Oklahoma's largest city, owner Glenn Orr and his family never counted on it all being shredded to pieces in just a few short minutes on a historically stormy day in May.
...
"But for the family, and for the employees and all for all of the people, we've got to rebuild," Orr said he had concluded shortly after the reality of the storm damage set in.
Glenn's son Tom, 48, owns and operates the year-round farm with his father and Tom's wife Debbie. The Orr Family Farm has 10 full-time staff members and employs approximately 20 people part time.
Still busy in mid-July clearing debris from the 106 acres, Orr jumped off his Bobcat just long enough to reveal in an interview the operators of the business are diving headfirst into a reconstruction project they hope will lead to a grand reopening of the facility on Sept. 28, in time for what is typically a busy fall season.
The Orr Family Farm and Celestial Acres are two separate entities located on property that has been in the family since 1977. Started in 2004, Orr Family Farm has featured a zip line, animal barn, giant jumping pillows, train rides, pony rides, pedal cars, carousel and other interactive experiences. The farm also hosts weddings, group events and field trips throughout the year.
"In total we have about 15 buildings that are now stripped of metal that's been hauled off," Orr said. "We've started to repair the basic structures on every one of them."
Orr and his family opened the Orr Family Farm in 2004.
...
Glenn Orr said six people were huddled in the offices of his brick home before moving below ground when they heard hail begin to strike. Five vehicles had just been placed in a large indoor arena.
...
"This has been pretty tough," an emotional Glenn Orr said weeks after the storm first hit. "We've had just wonderful support. We've had hundreds of people help us with the cleanup. To put a value on that it would be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
"It's very heartbreaking," Orr said.
...
"It was so touching what that school did that it still gets to me that people that far away would help us out like she did," Orr said. "There's no way we can not rebuild. There's just been such an outpouring of love from the community as well as everywhere."
Orr said farm operations considering getting into agritainment endeavors have to recognize the business for what it can often become - and that doesn't even include threats from Mother Nature.
"I would say it has to be a labor of love because it's not necessarily a money-making thing," he said.

Most people would consider the arrival of 80 six to eight-year-olds a recipe for unadulterated mayhem, but Dr. Glen Orr, owner of Orr Family Farm, shrugs off the suggestion with a nonchalant statement, "We can hold up to 500."
Even on the slow days at the Orr Family Farm, Orr pulls no stops on the fun and "agri-education.
...
About six years ago, the Orr Family Farm began as an agricultural entertainment and education attraction after Orr and his wife, Shari, decided they wanted to add something new to the community in which they had made their home and continue to run their other businesses.
"Our good Lord has prospered us and we wanted to give back to our community," said Orr.
...
It is easy to observe during a visit to the farm that Orr not only met all his aspirations for the farm, but also expands on his goals each year.
...
Orr wanted his attraction to be less about "flash" and instead focuses his attractions on enjoying nature and engaging in movement.
"We're not into the thrill business, we're into education and physical activity," said Orr.
