About Jo Lisby
I am the vacation rental property manager for Dr. Jerry and Teresa Givens. My husband, Steve and I lease the farm for our cattle operation. I am a retired teacher/coach of 30 years. Jerry bought "The Farm" property in 2012. They both work in medical services and raised their family in the Branson community.
Jo Lisby purchased this House in 2012
Why Jo Lisby chose Omaha
At that time the property was used by hunters and had only a Hunter's Cabin on it. Extensive investment was made to turn the property into an active cattle ranch with 150 acres pastureland. The house was built in 2013. It is used as a second home by Dr. Givens and his family.
What makes this House unique
The farmhouse is an ICF (concrete walls). It is furnished with quality furnishings and stocked with everything you need away from home. It is extremely quiet inside and private, surrounded by beautiful views and a variety of wildlife. Dr. Givens has developed 200+ acres with private hiking trails and a secluded picnic area. All of this is just a few miles from Branson, MO and all it's tourist and outdoor attractions. This property has the best of all worlds for our guests.
Minimum age of primary renter:25

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. We try to make The Farm a comfortable and peaceful place for our guests to relax.
a few minor details
overall I liked the property, there were a few issues that should be addressed. The sign for Millard Ln is hidden behind the bushes and way too high. Even if the bushes were cleared, it is impossible to see the sign at night. It would have been helpful if a picture of the Millard turnoff and the correct turn immediately after the concrete bridge were included in the instructions instead of just a written description. Also, it would be better to eliminate the "southern" route to the property. Instead, just have people turn off at the Pinecrest Rd. exit.
The front door latch bolt does not retract completely when the lever on the outside is pushed down. This makes opening the front door a bit challenging.
The master bedroom has an issue. The wooden platform on which the mattress lays protrudes out beyond the edge of the mattress. The corners of that platform are sharp. They should be rounded so that if you accidently hit said corners with your shin, you will only get a bruise instead of a scrape as I did.
Finally, please provide some better quality toilet paper.
The farm atmosphere is a treat for our guests. Thank you for your suggestions. The roadsigns are the responsibility of the county and unfortunately we have no control over their placement. Adding pictures of the concrete bridge turnoff is a good idea. The northern and southern directions that I have listed lead guests to the same exit and turn off on Pinecrest Road. The front door latch has been lubricated and the bed frame will be checked.
Really enjoyed the stay
The house was very nice. It’s very remote, we weren’t expecting how rual it was but it turned out to be very nice. A nice secluded place to relax after a day in Branson.
Thanks, Jason! We are glad you enjoyed our farm as your home away from home. We try to make it the perfect hideaway for our guests.
Nice house. Everything probided. Close to Branson
Worth the money. Clean and quaint. Highly recommend
Thank you for choosing our Farm for your families Thanksgiving. We love providing everthing our guests will need in their home away from home.
Beautiful, clean, perfect!
Well stocked, close to harrison and branson. We absolutely loved it and will surely be back.
Note to others, long rock road to the property is sometimes steep. 2 wheel drive compact cars may have a chore.
It was awesome! Thanks to the owners and caretakers!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at The Farm. The Ozark Mountains can make for a steep driveway but the beauty makes it worth it.
Idyllic Arkansas retreat
Actually, everything was great...beautiful farmland, cows close by and mooing, surprisingly clean house, privacy...only criticism is the access to the property...still unsure if my or my son's car were damaged by the jagged rocks on the lane leading to the property (rain caused the tires to sink in the ruts, thereby causing the underside of the cars to scrape bottom in the middle part of the lane)...and, most definitely, there needs to be a sign directing visitors away from the fork in the lane that leads to another person's property...my son mistakenly drove onto the lane that leads to this neighbor's house...landed in a huge pothole and scraped bottom on a HUGE rock...with his brand new car...had I known the problems of the terrain, I would have driven my truck
We are glad you enjoyed the peaceful farm life. We will work on more signage to better direct guests onto the proper gravel road.
