Auction Details

Located 54 miles south of Springfield Missouri and 60 miles NE of Branson Missouri on Hwy. 5 North. This property has plenty of road frontage with easy access off Hwy. 5 as well as country road access off County Road 411. Property boasts 126 acres of irrigated pasture land. 

Hwy. 5 Frontage fields (approximately 15-20 acres ) produce 260 round bales weighing 640 pounds a bale. The fields are rich with an abundant variety of orchard grass, fescue,  timothy, bermuda, alfalfa, white clover, red clover. 

Heirloom apple, pear, plum, and peach trees in a small orchard near the home. 

The farm is irrigated with 2 wells. The second well services the 120 acre pasture land and was drilled in 1998 with 3800 feet of waterlines to maintain the 7 automatic heated watering tanks with shut off valves for livestock. The tanks are constructed with a concrete base surrounded by a tractor tire which absorbs the heat from the sun and prevents freezing.  The pasture also contains 4 ponds including a stocked pond with bluegill and 8-12 pound catfish, along with a seasonal stream and 2 springs. The entire farm is fenced and cross fenced. The perimeter of the farm is fenced in with 4 strand barbed wire with approximately 100 acres being reinforced with webbed wire to keep small livestock safe. 

The entry way of the property, off country road 411, has a natural 7 foot high cedar privacy fence with an entry gate that runs along the residential frontage area. 

The property has 2 barns - The main barn is 43’ wide x 37’ deep x 40’ long with a dirt floor.
The second barn (machine shop) is 24’ x 37’ x 10’ with a sliding door and a concrete floor. 
A one car garage is attached to the second barn with electricity running through each barn and garage. 

There is a garden shed and a small well house. 

The house is well maintained with many recent updates including a new roof (2015), 643 sq ft. multilevel deck and gazebo, new Pella windows, doors and storm doors, heating and air system, floors, updated kitchen.
