RockSpan maps and overview

RockSpan is the name for our 12 acre farm and house in western Greene County, Missouri. 

The project is the West end of Division street, 11 miles from Springfield, Missouri.   The colorful plan below shows the family farm: approximately 227 acres outlined in red with a possible land use plan.  Our 12 acres are inside the larger farm.
