Property Details

Jacks Fork Farmsteads Parcel O

Have you ever done anything really, truly stupid? Something so patently simpleminded that you want to wear a disguise when you leave home?

Personally, I do stupid things quite frequently.

Recently, for example, I thought it would be a good thing to do, before moving our bulldozer out of Jacks Fork Farmsteads, if we were to build stock ponds on several of the parcels there. These make the parcels more attractive to you, the land-lusting public, and we can add them for free without raising our prices.

That wasn’t the stupid thing I did, though.

The stupid thing I did was the same stupid thing I am always whining about clients doing. That is, when I went out to instruct our operator on where to dig the ponds, I went to the location without taking a paper map.

Stupid, stupid, stupid. As a result, while my good intentions were to put one pond on Parcel O and one more on Parcel N, my memory of the JFF plat map failed me, and we now have two ponds on Parcel O and no ponds on Parcel N. That’s why it’s good to do your own heavy equipment work in-house: there’s nobody to sue you.

Anyway, Parcel O now enjoys the luxury of two stock ponds to complement its 6.85 acres. Perhaps you could stock the upper pond with fish, and dedicate the lower one to your goats, horses, cattle, porcupines, or whatever. The parcel is mostly pasture on a moist north slope, with a little less than an acre devoted to young timber.

I just almost did another stupid thing. I almost forgot to mention the most important part: with an elevation of about 1,300 feet, and much surrounding open land, the south side of Parcel O presents the visitor with a pastoral view down the valley that will make your heart pause.

If you’re looking for a place to keep livestock, or start an orchard or vineyard, this is the place.

Driving Directions to Locate Jacks Fork Farmstead Parcel O

From Willow Springs, drive north on State Highway 137 exactly 9.0 miles after you pass the city limits, the property begins on your left. At the top of the next hill and before you begin down the long downgrade to the Jacks Fork, you'll see the entrance on your left. Sorry, we don't have any markings. Follow this road through a concrete cattle guard and you're inside JFF. Now follow the road to the bottom of the hill. There's not much way you can go wrong here, but just to be sure, it's a little less than 4/10ths of a mile to the small creek. Parcel O begins on your right a 3/10-mile after you cross the creek. (Caution: We do not have signage up yet.)
