Living Kitchen revises schedule, looks ahead

Living Kitchen Farm & Dairy has revised reopening plans for its popular weekend dinners on its farm near Depew.

“We are not satisfied that the infection rate in Oklahoma is dropping enough to safely operate this month, so we are canceling all dinners through the month of May and processing full refunds,” owners Linda Ford and Lisa Becklund said in a release.

Sundays have been added to Fridays and Saturdays in June to try to accommodate those who already have reservations. No more reservations are being taken for June.

“We hope to open our new restaurant, FarmBar, at 18th (Street) and Boston (Avenue) in Tulsa in July,” the release said. “To be able to give our full attention and drive as much business to the new restaurant as we can, we will not host dinners at the farm in July and August.”

The owners said they hope to offer dinners in September, October and November. For more details, go to
