FIVE  PONDS  FARM
             
              FIVE  PONDS  FARM

          is a diversified family endeavor
    dedicated to the preservation of
    RARE, HERITAGE LIVESTOCK breeds
          and MEDICINAL and EDIBLE PLANTS.
    We thrive on the rolling green hills
    of the Missouri Ozarks.   

    We are blessed with ample sunshine,
    fresh air, clean water, superior home-
    grown food, and room to play and
    forage, as God intended. Indeed,
          we thank Him for all these things.  
The  Missouri  Ozarks:   
Where  the  men  are  men and  the  soil is  stone.
THANK YOU
for visiting our website;
we hope you will  
visit our farm, too!

    Reliable livestock transport
    Don't despair that you live so far away from us!  Ron Keener picks up
    and delivers livestock all over the country. The calf we sent with him
    to New Mexico he treated with great care and loving attention.  
    Another client's animal he milked as needed on her way across
    the USA.  We highly recommend Ron to transport your livestock safely
    and with kindness.  It is clear that he loves animals and is concerned
    for their welfare.   His amazing trailer enables him to haul a variety
    of species separately and in comfort.  (Photo property of Ron Keener).

VIRINDA FARMS

We have informally partnered with our friends Sally & Jesse
at nearby VIRINDA FARMS.  Please visit their page
HERE.   
   The Federal Government's National BLUEWAYS System was slated to take effect in the Ozarks
   on July 7, 2013.  Blueways is a massive federal land grab slated for 25 huge areas in the USA
   (Minnesota and Indiana are the next up; it could hit your area soon!).  We Ozarkers worked
   diligently to preserve our property rights and keep 18 million acres here from government
   takeover. Please see the link above and
HERE for more info and a map of the region affected.

For the
     July 3, 2013:  The Secty of the Interior has rescinded the Blueway designation for the Ozarks!
   We are most grateful for the efforts so many people made to help bring this about, especially the
   
Property Right Coalition and Secure Arkansas.  We urge people everywhere to stand up for their
   rights-- If we stand together we CAN make good things happen!  (We suggest you do internet
   searches for "National Blueway" and "property rights" and add your state or abbreviation).
 
Due to family health and other issues, we may sell our
FARM and all STOCK & EQUIPMENT,
most household goods, etc.  Please e-mail us for more information.
