Some of the best Ozark countryside that joins over 50,000 acres of Mark Twain National Forest on 2 sides, with the majority down the eastern property line. The land is a mixture of pasture and the remaining is a mixture of hardwoods and cedar.

Last time checked it is producing 981,000 gallons a day. One of the largest privately owned springs in Missouri. Has a lake, along with 4 running creeks throughout the property. Mature hardwoods with potential of more income. Has 6 cabins: 1 four bed cabin, 2 one bed cabins, 2 two bed cabins, and 1 two bed large. Perfect for guests for a weekend getaway or for future business opportunities. Currently has a large pavilion with seating capable for 200 rough guess. It overlooks the spring.

Agent Comments

BROKER PARTICIPATION AVAILABLE- If you have a buyer contact us to learn more about registering your buyer for this auction.

ATTENTION:  All bidding is CASH BIDS.  That does not mean you can not use bank financing to purchase the property.  CASH BIDS means there are no financing contingencies and you are bidding as if you are spending cash.

The previous owner registered the spring and began to sell it in bulk. He was selling 60,000 gallons a day and getting $2400 for the 60,000 gallons. He was selling to Chapelle International and LaCroix Spring Water. The current owner has bought a bottling line that can produce up to 3000 bottles per hour. So you could sell bulk water to a bottler or build up a customer base to bottle on your own. One huge advantage to this property is owning your own spring and being so close to the St. Louis market. This natural spring has won an award for taste in Chicago back in the mid 90's. Not only is it a great investment but has great deer and turkey on the property, especially adjoining the national forest.
