People from ALL over the Tri-State Area & beyond flock to Green Pond!

People are always asking us where our buyers 'come from'....many assuming that our buyers are all either Green Ponders or related to an OGP (Old Time Green Ponder).

If there is one thing I can say about the Community of Green Pond is that in all the places I have lived, I have NEVER seen more community spirit than with Green Ponders.
