About Morning Mist Farm

Morning Mist Farm is a registered family owned and operated multipurpose farm.  We raise poultry, waterfowl and grade paint horses out of quarter horse/mustang stock.  We are pleased with what we have accomplished here and look forward to many more years of working this farm. 

About Us

Tim and Laurie Spencer bought the land that became Morning Mist Farm in 1990.  Since then, they have made manyGadsden
                Flag improvements, built a house, and re-fenced and cross fenced the entire farm  There still remains a never ending "to do list" of further improvements as well as continuous maintenance.  The farm is operated and managed as family effort, with Laurie working on sales, Neekisha providing the basic ground work training for the horses, and Tim doing whatever else that needs to be done as his health permits.

Tim & Laurie have been married for 31 years, and have three adult children, Neekisha Gregory, David Spencer and Kelly B. Spencer.  They also have four grand children; Shane, age 12; Faith, age 10, Kaitlyn, age 11; and Nathaniel, age 5 years.

About Laurie...

Laurie manages the farm's finances, negotiates sales and works diligently to improve the operating environment of the farm through her expert evaluation techniques and her farsighted planning abilities.  She also assists and cares for her husband, Tim, a 100% disabled veteran.

Laurie's ability to gain the trust of horses is uncanny.  Because both her and her daughter, Neekisha, use training techniques that are highly effective but unconventional, they have "tamed" some of the wildest stock that one could imagine.

Before moving to Missouri in 1990, Laurie worked as a water survival instructor for the Department of Defense at Belle Chase, LA,  as a Water Safety Instructor and Lifeguard at Naval Station Charleston and as a contracted American Red Cross instructor for virtually every class taught by the Red Cross.  Additionally, she also worked at Berkeley County, SC EMS.  Here she has worked as a Swimming Pool Manager for the City of Salem, owned a video store and a game room, and has also worked at Wal-Mart.  Now she works on the farm and takes care of her husband, Tim.

About Tim...

Tim is a 100% disabled veteran due to combat related injuries.  As his levels of energy and pain permit, Tim works closely with Laurie and Neekisha to ensure maintenance items and improvements are made in a timely, proper and a cost effective manner.

Tim also raises poultry as hobby, but this hobby also provides a good amount of meat and eggs for the family.  Tim has constructed his own incubators and brooders, mostly using "junk" that he has found and recycled for useful purposes.  Tim hatched out well over five hundred birds in 2009; surplus birds, when available, are offered for sale and are always listed here. 170 Pixel Adv.

About Neekisha...

Tim and Laurie's daughter, Neekisha, is married to Mr. Daniel Gregory and they have two young sons ages seven years and thirteen years old and as of 31 July, 2013 a new daughter to add to the family, Mary-Jane Louise.  Neekisha is an invaluable asset to the farm and enables the farm to not only survive, but to succeed.  She is primarily responsible for most equine training accomplished at Morning Mist Farm and is also our primary "go to" person for veterinary needs.  Daniel works off of the farm as a professional roofer, but his help on the farm is invaluable.

Additionally, Neekisha owns and operates Agri-Host.US a  web hosting service that is tailored to the needs of the rural and agricultural community.
