Selby Farm Horse Retirement

10 sites · RVs, Tents75 acres · Wooldridge, MO
Summary: Easy access from I-70 Great views. Usually very quiet except for wildlife sounds Portapottie at both camping areas Great star viewing. Excellent conditions for pets Hosts live nearby and are good communicators via text or phone. Hosts can direct you to several local attractions and shopping options. Hosts are happy to take questions before, during, or after your stay. Narrative about Selby Farm: Selbys have lived on this 75 acre farm since 1990. Doug and Brenda are retired from teaching at nearby public schools. Our Farm is now dedicated to boarding retired horses for their owners. Feel free to review the Selby Farm Horse Retirement webpage if you are a horse fan. We encourage you to visit our business website where you will see more farm pictures, videos, and where you will learn more about us. We practice rotational grazing for the health of the horses and the health of our pastures. The horses live in a herd as they would in the wild. Basically, they are hanging out with their friends! They also get regular care and feed and so are VERY happy. You will see and probably interact with the horses if you wish. They are guaranteed to come closer if you have treats like carrots and apples slices. Our quiet county road used to be the main road along the river. A hundred years ago it was called "Shanty Road". The shacks that were along it housed workers that harvested food from farms in the river bottom. The only evidence of those shacks now is perrenial flowers growing in unusual places. The area is inhabited by professionals working in nearby towns and cities. In fact there are only five homes along our 1.5 mile section of Copps Chapel Road. The native Americans who used this area did so because of the great diversity of wildlife and availability of water. Also the view is amazing in all directions. Was using this ridge top encampment for security, or just because the view is so satisfying? The Missouri River is on the far side of the bottoms now, but has been very close historically. There is also a large spring flowing from a cave nearby. Witness the flint chips when you walk through our barn lot. You are likely to see a broken stone tool that was once worked on by a native American. These river hills are composed of soils blown in from the end of the last ice age. Being near the river, erosion has cut down the surrounding area making the scenic topography associated with Missouri River valleys and river hills.

D'Ranch at Clearwater

10 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents40 acres · Gravois Mills, MO
D'Ranch at Clearwater is a small, 40 acre hobby farm located on the north side of the Lake of the Ozarks in Central Missouri. What started as a simple love of backyard chickens has now become a dream farm for Tracey Durant and her husband Theodore. Nestled in the valley between two forest covered hillsides, and running adjacent to Clearwater Creek on the east and the lake on the south, D'Ranch could not have been a more perfect location for the Durants to plant their roots and get their feet wet. While they continue their love of backyard chickens with their small egg and hatchery operation know as HeebyJeeby Chickens, they have expanded their interests to an array of friendly farm animals including horses, cows, pigs, goats, sheep, ducks, and an occasional turkey or two.

Dewberry Acres Homestead

16 sites · RVs, Tents40 acres · Dixon, MO
Enjoy a break from the hustle and bustle on our 40 acre homestead. Enjoy watching our animals graze and frolic for a unique ambiance. We have rare chickens & sheep breeds, goats, Norbie (the pig), 2 old horses, a few mini dexter cows and geese to bring delight to everyone! We are always excited to let you help with animal chores if you want an immersive experience of homesteading life. Make sure to bring mud boots! We have several unique activities if you are intrigued to learn, or you can chill and have a quiet time in nature. Some interests we teach: wildcrafting and using medicinal weeds/herbs, gardening, milking sheep/goats, and working with/spinning wool! We are under major repairs and are slightly messy in some areas as we are renovating a broken-down bluegrass festival campground that has been falling apart for a few years. We are 30 miles north of Fort Leonard Wood on easy access roads. We can accommodate big and small rigs and tents. We are 20 minutes from kayaking on the Gasconade River, and approximately 45 minutes from Lake Ozark area.

Bittersweet Pasture Camp

6 sites · RVs, Tents80 acres · Long Lane, MO
The property has been a working farm for many years and about 25 years in my family. There are multifaceted features in this immediate area. There’s a creek that begins in open pastures and winds through rugged Ozarks hill terrain and a natural phenomenon of a historic sinkhole area now home to grass and trees. The property lies adjacent to another property with campsites owned by our farm and leads to extensive hiking and exploring opportunities.Learn more about this land:Right at the crossroads of a couple gravel roads, Bittersweet and Bluegrass, you can pick which side of the road you want to camp but explore both + more. One side is mostly wooded with scenic trails and the other side is mostly pasture with a surprise, a very large natural sink hole that has been there for many many years. Lots and lots of hiking potential and wildlife observation.
