This page is dedicated to our mother

mom

Ramona Jean Simpson, 1942-2003.

¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤

Our great-grand parents immigrated from Germany, the Netherlands and France, and settled in Michigan and in Alabama. Both sides of our family farmed crops and livestock, and we grew up raising Tennessee Walkers and McCurdy Plantation horses in Alabama with our mother.

¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤
In Alabama, the Lanier and Simpson families in Escambia county farmed peanuts, potatoes, corn, hay, sugarcane, cotton, field peas, strawberries, blueberries, peaches and pecans, and cattle. In Bay county Michigan, the Klopf and Lather families grew wheat, oats, rye, corn, and navy beans. Our dad grew these same crops with his dad.

 Five-Points Farm began in the late 90’s with horses and grade brush goats in Letohatchee, AL, and in 2005 moved to the current location in Indian Trail, North Carolina. In 2015 we opened a Michigan annex of the main farm.
