Mead is a cute little welcoming town which is quite small where most everyone is friends with one another. Although Mead doesn't have a grocery store or a local gas station there is a tractor feed and supply store where you can find all your gardening/farming needs. We have our very own schools which two of the three are right in the center of our town. These two schools are the elementary and middle school which are also very friendly and inviting to all.

Mead is the best place to live! The neighbors are so friendly, kind and helpful! The town puts together all sorts of wonderful events to bring the community together. It's very small town and has a wonderful hometown feeling.
I've lived in Mead for a few years now with my family and we've thoroughly enjoyed it. However, we would love it if there was a coffee shop or even a grocery store.
