FARMS AND RANCHES
Not far from the lakes, but far enough, bigger parcels of land with more agrarian uses are found.
513 ACRE WORKING CATTLE RANCH
This property adjoins the Mark Twain National Forest and is accessed by an Ozark County gravel road six-tenths of a mile from a paved road near Thornfield, Missouri. The owner normally runs 80 to 100 mother cows but states that the maximum capacity is definitely higher. Three-quarters of the land is in fenced pastures and unfenced hayfields, and the balance is wooded and contains many cedars, oaks, and walnut trees of sawlog size and quality. There are springs here, a creek, and 13 ponds. The average annual rainfall for this county is 44 inches.The owner’s home is high quality and custom built with a unique multi-level floorplan and has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.
SECLUDED 360 ACRE FARM
The county road fronting this 360 acre farm dead-ends at the adjoining neighbor, which is the Missouri Department of Conservation Caney Mountain Refuge, a wild turkey factory including lots of whitetail deer. Some of these protected big bucks visit this place during the fall hunting seasons. Ain’t love grand!
The 3 bedroom farmhouse is livable, but could use some upgrades. There’s a good well here, plus a spring, and a modern septic system. There is also a newer garage/shop building near the house.
The land is a mix of pastures and woods and has at least 3 ponds.
