Life on the Farm in the Heartland

What's happening at lightning Oak

About us

Hi there.  Welcome to our page… we are so glad you stopped by!  Our names are Tim and Beth Ford.  We own and operate Lightning Oak Farm in West Plains, MO.  On this website we will be sharing our experience of running a small farm in the Ozarks.  Tim grew up on the farm that we live on.  In years past the farm had become non-operational due to health issues so we are in the process of restoring it. This will include outdoor work across the property, doing a partial rebuild to the barn original to the property, as well as remodeling our home as it still has many of the features that were so highly admired when it was built in 1972.  

We’ll be posting blog and video updates of all the work and adventures as often as possible.  Everyone is invited to come along for the ride to see exactly where this adventure takes us!
