Amanda and Matt Hakola have owned a few buses before finally finding their current bus and landing in Oklahoma. Their bus is also the mothership for their business Ragtag Resilience—an approach to stabilizing food systems by doing a lot of little things that add up to change. (They farm their .15 acres and grow lots of amazing foods to feed their family and sell at market.) Their business caught the eye of Leonardo DiCaprio’s personal chef during the filming of Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” while shooting on location in Oklahoma, which led to Amanda and Matt catering the film’s wrap party.
If you’re gong through the northeast corner of Oklahoma, their hometown of Bartlesville is well worth checking out. In addition to being the historical backdrop of the story behind Killers of the Flower Moon, the town has Frank Lloyd Wright’s only skyscraper, and right near the Tall Grass Prairie. Amanda and Matt have an AirBnB which also boasts one of their market gardens on the grounds.
