Turnkey Cattle Operation Bordering St. Francois River With Two Cozy Cottages



Cedar Bottom Farm is so much more than a well-equipped cattle farm. This is the place you want to be if you like to hunt, hike, and fish, ride horses, or simply relax and enjoy the beautiful vistas. The farm is surrounded by the gentle slopes of the St. Francois Mountains and the foothills of the Ozarks. The pastures are lush, ready for grazing cattle or cutting hay.  The wooded acreage is home to an abundance of wildlife, especially deer and turkey. The St. Francis River borders part of the western property line and provides the opportunity for boating and fishing. Cedar Creek runs along the entire southern edge of the farm, is an exciting place to hike and explore. The two cottages, built in 2012 and 2014, are well designed for permanent lodging or as retreat getaways for visiting family and friends.
