Oklahoma Farm Family Competes to be America's Favorite Small Business

Wed, 21 Sep 2011 11:02:15 CDT

Oklahoma Farm Family Competes to be America's Favorite Small Business A nationwide contest was kicked off this week by Dell Computers, in partnership with Microsoft and MasterCard, to give small businesses across the nation an opportunity to tell the story of their small business and why they should win the title of America's Favorite Small Business. Most people would not think of agriculture for this contest, but an Oklahoma farm family took on this opportunity to win not only the title, but also the $25,000 in Dell products preloaded with Windows programs and a $50,000 prepaid card from MasterCard.

Mason and Madison Bolay of Perry, Okla., entered the contest with their small farm business of Bolay Farms, which started in 1893 in Noble County. Bolay Farms is a fifth generation farming operation that still focuses on the ideas of living off of the land and providing safe and abundant products to their consumers, whether it is livestock or grain products.

Ultimately, Mason and Madison say one of the most important aspects of Bolay Farms is to be efficient and maximize on every acre's potential throughout their farm. To keep up with the changing times in agriculture, Bolay Farms relies on technology to help guide them and to meet these goals of their operation.

Bolay Farms has been selected as one of the top ten finalists for the American's Favorite Small Business competition and it is now turned over to America to decide who is the favorite. Voting in the competition has already started and will continue until October 9, with the winner being announced on October 10.
