Overview of Jacks Fork Farmsteads


Access from Highway 137 is by a single-lane farm road for 4/10ths of a mile.  You should be prepared to maintain this road yourself.. 



We do not supply water or water systems to any of these lots. Purchasers of these lots will have to arrange to drill their own private well if they desire water. For information on drilling procedures you should contact local well drillers which are listed in the yellow pages of local phone books or we will recommend some to you.

All lots within the subdivision are five (5) acres or greater, thus making the subdivision exempt from needing a Residential Housing Development Geohydrologic Groundwater Evaluation Rating. Missouri State Regulation Number 10 CSR 20-6.030, section (1)(C)(4) states “Lots of 5 acres or larger are exempt.” There is no assurance of a sufficient supply of water for the anticipated population.

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.

Well depths will average between 250 to 500 feet throughout the Ozarks. In the event that a productive well cannot be installed, you may exchange your lot for another.

Permits are not required to drill water wells for single family dwellings; however you are required to hire a state-licensed
well driller.

Purity and chemical content of water cannot be determined until each individual well is completed and tested.


Electrical lines have not been extended in front of, or adjacent to, all lots. Acquiring electrical service is the responsibility of the purchaser, not Ozark Land Company Incorporated. Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, West Plains, MO 65775, (417) 256-2131 provides electricity to Jack’s Fork Farmsteads. Electrical hook-up is free to permanent residences; however charges could
change at any time.




We do not provide telephone lines or service to any of these lots. You may provide telephone service at your own expense by CenturyTel 1-800-201-4099. Due to the unique nature of each situation, a quote for installation of new telephone lines cannot be given until a technician has come to the site.


We do not provide any means of sewage disposal for these lots. Being in a rural area, the most common methods of sewage disposal are by individual on-site septic tanks or septic-lagoons. Ozark Land Company Incorporated does not allow septic-lagoons, however composting toilets and out-houses are permitted.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has given general approval for this usage of this site for individual sewage
treatment systems.

Septic systems must be constructed in accordance with County and State standards, and you must obtain permission from the Texas County Health Department, 950 N. Highway 63, Houston, MO 65483, (417) 967-4131 to install a septic tank. The average cost of a septic tank and drain field is $3500.


Propane gas is available from local dealers.

Mail Delivery:

Mail is delivered to the Jacks Fork Farmsteads entrance on Hwy. 137.  To establish a mailbox there, contact the postmaster at Willow Springs Post Office.
