Enjoy water sports? We're surrounded by water with Stockton Lake to the Southeast, Truman Lake to the Northeast, Pomme de Terre to the East and Schell City Wildlife to the North. You can make it to the water in 20 minutes.
Our creeks and streams provide a good soil base for crop production such as corn, soybeans, milo and wheat, with a 192 day growing season that allows for double cropping. Most areas are conducive to running cattle with the more popular breeds being Angus, Limousin, Polled Herford, etc.
The mild climate and long growing season make it possible to run cow/calf pairs on two to five acres per year. Southwest Missouri leads the state in cow/calf production and the state ranks second in the nation.
People come here to raise their families, start or relocate their business, or just retire because of our location, mild climate, fresh air, low cost of living, low crime rate, slow pace of life, access to hunting and fishing, and our own shopping areas.
