About Us

Company Background and History
Morning Meadow was established in 1998 as a registered trade name for Green Pastures, Inc.  Earlier in 1998, Green Pastures, Inc. was incorporated in Louisiana as a private company by Ralph and Fern Owens.  Both Ralph and Fern have extensive rental property management and ownership experience dating back to 1984.  Their challenge was to develop a new rental property business from the ground up.  Strong market competition, coupled with their personal goals, dictated that their business needed to be more than simply a superior operation.

In mid-1998 the Company purchased the initial property conveniently located on New Natchitoches Road, just outside the city limits of West Monroe.  Later that year construction for the first phase of development began (20 Manufactured Home Sites and 58 Self-Storage Units).  We were excited to receive our first customers in 1999.

As our business grew we purchased adjacent properties on Arthur Street, Bailey Street, and New Natchitoches Road, integrating them into the facility.  We have incrementally expanded the business and most recently added an additional Climate and Humidity Controlled storage building.

Today, our core business consists of 124 Manufactured Home Sites and 700 Self-Storage Units located on a 30+ acre land parcel.

North Louisiana's Premier Manufactured Home Community
"Morning Meadow is a GREAT place to live!"
Our modern, well-maintained community is located at 305 New Natchitoches Road (1/4 mile West of Thomas Road), just outside of the West Monroe, LA city limits.  We are convenient to shopping, schools, churches, healthcare, businesses, work commutes, dining, recreation, sporting activities, and more. If you're looking for a starter home site, down-sizing, retiring, or simply looking for your next ideal place to live, you'll find Morning Meadow is a place you will be proud to call home. What makes us different?
  • All our residents own their homes. We rent home sites (lots) for owner-occupied manufactured homes; no third-party rentals are permitted.
  • All homes must be recently manufactured and in good condition; modern manufactured housing units are built to meet high construction standards similar to those for conventional "stick-built" homes.
  • We have various sizes and rates for lot sites that will accommodate single-section and multi-section manufactured homes.
  • We provide a set of amenities and extras that exceed those provided by most other facilities.
  • We have a set of "Community Guidelines for Occupancy, Living, and Maintenance" which are designed to keep our neighborhood a friendly, desirable, peaceful, clean, and aesthetically pleasing place to live.
  • Our owners, management, and staff are actively involved and engaged daily with keeping all aspects of our community standards and facilities at the highest levels.
