The Orr Family Farm is holding its second annual Weather Roundup - a day created to replace fear of tornadoes with awareness of Oklahoma's terrible twisters. The Orr Family Farm was hard hit by the deadly EF-5 tornado that swept through central Oklahoma almost a year ago.

The same employees that had to take cover from the tornado only to emerge to see the entire farm destroyed will be on hand to celebrate their continued recovery.

"We just pulled the blessing out of it," said Orr Family Farm General Manager Shanin Kemp. "We focused on the bright side, and we tried to make some changes we had wanted to make before."
