HEAVEN SENT FOOD & FIBERHeaven Sent Food & Fiber is a diversified, sustainable family farm in Cherokee County, providing hand-dyed and natural-color wool yarn from their flock of merino sheep and alpacas, meat from their cows, pastured pigs, lambs and goats, vegetables, and honey, as well as hand-crafted goat milk soap to area community supported agriculture customers, farmers' markets and retail outlets.

PERRY DOGSPerry Dogs is a small but growing company focused on good food at reasonable prices. Our food truck build hit a snag when we had to rebuild the engine. Now all that remains is interior work and a few pieces of equipment. Most has already been acquired.

Once finished the food truck will be able to provide a wide variety of delicious food at affordable prices to the people of Rogers and Mayes counties. They care about our night shift EMS and Hospital Medical Staff. The need for medics to have a hot lunch near a hospital is what started the business to begin with.

This truck will allow them to offer more variety in more locations to help those that help us.
