Jacks Fork Farmsteads Parcels V and W
- Grid electricity available
- Private access road (low-water bridge)
- Drilled well and legal septic required before occupancy
- No mobile homes
Jacks Fork Farmsteads Parcels V and W have frontage on a high ridge road that will afford you a view far down the Jacks Fork Valley.
Both parcels are open ground and require annual mowing of the established turf or pasture animals, but there’s a bit of forest with some pretty-large trees along the south boundary line and the creek frontage. There’s also a small stock pond. The two parcels have a combined road frontage of just shy of half a mile from the low-water bridge down on the creek up to the high, scenic ridge.
These combined parcels have quite a bit of steep ground, and there’s a one-hundred-foot building setback from the road, so choosing a building site will probably involve some trade-offs. The property is about 3/5 miles from a paved road, including a low-water bridge which can be depended on to flood occasionally. Willow Springs, Missouri is about 10 miles to the south, and grid electricity is just across the road.
Jacks Fork Farmsteads is 230 acres of rolling ranch-land with three greenspaces, including one on a swimming hole on the South Prong of the Jacks Fork River. While buildings are not restricted (except for mobile homes), all the current residents live in small cabins on one to four of the 33 parcels. Due to our mild restrictions and our wonderful, responsible clientele, JFF is one of our cleanest locations.

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. The estimated cost of a complete well, casing and pump system in this area is $7,500. Permits are not required to drill water wells for single-family dwellings; however, you are required to hire a state-licensed well-driller.

Driving Directions to Locate Jacks Fork Farmstead Parcels V and WFrom Willow Springs, drive north on State Highway 137 exactly 9.0 miles after you pass the city limits, the property begins on your left.

Follow this road through a concrete cattle guard and you're inside JFF. Now follow the road, bearing left, 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. After you cross the creek on the low-water bridge, the road forks. Go left. Parcel W includes the creek frontage on this side of the creek and west (left) of the road. It also includes all the property on the left to the curve at the top of the hill and about 300 feet beyond the curve.
No Down Payment - Warranty Deed after Six MonthsWelcome 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.
