  • Drilled well and legal septic required before occupancy
  • No mobile homes

The Hay Meadow Parcels: Jacks Fork Farmsteads Parcels C, D.

These parcels are all quite similar, having once encompassed a large hay meadow. They all front on the South Prong of the Jacks Fork River, a year-round creek large enough to have the occasional swimming hole. They are also all primarily open, level ground covered in pasture.

The only outlier is Parcel C, which slopes down to the northwest corner providing kinda-easy access to the creek, there’s still a small jungle you’ll need to tunnel through. Accessing the creek from the other parcel requires a steep climb through the very old-growth forest between the creek and the meadow. The meadow is about 50 feet of elevation above the water. (That’s why we reserved a section of the creek downstream with the best swimming hole as greenspace for all the property owners.)

If you’re looking for small acreage, and you want to do some serious cropping or pasturing, then either or both of these parcels will probably be the best choice you’ll find on the market (which tends to be mostly woodsland). It would take a decade or two, and lots of seriously hard work to turn five or six or eleven acres of forest into such a level, nearly rock-free meadow as these parcels. If this is the place for you, you’ll know it, but you should also bear in mind that if you buy either of these properties, you’ll need to be able to keep five-plus acres mowed at least once a year.

Legal Description
Jacks Fork Farmsteads Parcel D as shown in the Official Plat of Jacks Fork Farmsteads recorded in the Texas County Survey Record at Book 18, Page 13, Texas County Missouri Recorder's Office.
We will pass Fee Simple Title to the purchaser conveying 100% of the ownership of the property including all timber, mineral and water rights. We own this property free and clear of all tax liens, judgments mortgages or other encumbrances. As purchaser, you are not assuming any existing liens. We will record a Warranty Deed to the property in your name after you have made six monthly payments.
Access from Missouri State Highway 137 is by a single-lane farm road. You should be prepared to maintain this road yourself.
We do not supply water or water systems to any of these properties. Purchasers of these parcels need to arrange to drill their own private water well. For information on drilling procedures you should contact local well-drillers. Current prices charged by local well-drillers run around $8 per foot to drill and $9-13 per foot to install a 6-inch casing. Missouri law requires a minimum of 80 feet of casing in all locations and more in some. Permits are not required to drill water wells for single-family dwellings; however, you are required to hire a state-licensed well-driller.

The State of Missouri says that any septic tank and leach field on less than three acres must be installed to Missouri Department of Natural Resources specifications. You can get information on these by speaking to the Health Department in your respective County Seat.

Since they do not endanger the ground-water, properly operated and maintained composting toilets are not restricted, and thus are permitted at all locations.

Just before the highway begins it’s long downgrade to the Jacks Fork, you'll see the entrance to Jacks Fork Farmsteads your left. There’s a small sign, so you’ll know you have the right place. Follow this road just past the black double gates. Once you've passed through the double gates, follow the road to the bottom of the hill.

Parcel F begins in the middle of the second pond on the right, and Parcel E includes the big shade tree and a grove of smaller trees, Parcel D starts at a post in a pile of large rocks, and Parcel C ends with a fully fenced west line. All of these are on the right, or north, side of the road. We’ve placed “T” posts where each front corner meets the road.

    No Down Payment - Warranty Deed after Six Months

    Welcome to OzarkLand.com where, since 1982, we have dedicated ourselves to making Ozark Mountain land available to anyone who sincerely wants to own it, on a first-come, first-served basis. You don’t need to make a sizeable down payment, or any down payment at all—just start making the monthly payments.

    All of the properties we sell are owned by us, free and clear. That means that when we pass title to you, you don't need to worry that some disinterested third party—such as a bank—may own an interest in the property. This is frequently not the case in the real estate world at large.

    We give you a Warranty Deed guaranteeing the title—no lease-options, no long-term land contracts, but fee-simple title to the property after only six months' timely payments.

    All of the properties featured in our inventory are available to you via our very liberal financing plan. In fact, we’ll finance your whole land purchase with less paperwork and frustration than you'd experience buying a used car, and with no hidden expenses and one low-interest rate that’s remained unchanged since 1982.

    We'll set up a contract with you in return for one monthly payment. After six monthly payments, we give you a Warranty Deed to the property, and we hold a Deed of Trust and Quit-Claim Deed as security. We record the deeds at the county courthouse at our expense, and we pay all closing costs.

    There are no penalties for pre-payment.

    Terms are 9% simple interest for 15 years.

    You may consider moving to the property after you have paid a $1,000.00 deposit. You must receive approval from us before taking up residence.

    Requirements expected to be completed prior to moving, include:

    1. Sign up with a local trash collector. Proof of paid invoice will be required.
