Rural America is the backbone of the United States’ success. It’s home to America’s hardest working and most dedicated individuals rooted in their drive to make the rural landscape a place, not only for them to raise a family, but for their children to someday return and raise their family.

From a cattle ranch to a mushroom farm, from an oil rig to a mineral mine, the diversity of rural America lends to part of its beauty. Rural dwellers take a piece of land and create value. Together they help feed and provide for the world.  

Rural Oklahoma is full of some of the greatest success stories throughout the entire state and are a main reason Oklahoma is on track to become a top 10 state.

The Road to Rural Prosperity will dive into these stories each week bringing you insight into the great things happening in and to rural Oklahoma. We will bring you stories covering rural life, agriculture, energy, healthcare, tourism and politics all affecting rural America.

The Road to Rural Prosperity is here to tell stories about rural America, for rural America.
