Depends on Experience 

 

Ozark Mill and Finley Farm Description: Located in the heart of the Ozarks, Ozark Mill & Finely Farm is a historical and cultural destination for a new generation of travelers. Set along the Finley River in Ozark, MO, just a short drive from Springfield. We have taken great care to restore the working grist mill (built 1833) along the riverbank, to continue a long tradition of being the center of the community. The mill creates a unique place that embraces our heritage and supports a modern shift towards a more simple way of living. These inspired spaces offer events and programs that will allow people to experience an Ozark way of life in a whole new way. Inspired by the spirit of the Midwest, we are committed to delivering memorable experiences and genuine hospitality.

Modeled after the family farms that once dotted the Ozark landscape, Finley Farms honors the true spirit of the Ozarks agricultural beginnings—through time honored techniques, education and a sense of pride. Finely Farms is a multi-parcel, small plot, high-yield farm that will include a variety of edibles from vegetables to fruit and herbs to mushrooms. The farm produces seasonal products for the on-site farm market and restaurants. The farm is dedicated to being a resource and an educational amenity for the area. The farm grows produce that is incorporated through a myriad of food, drinks and products throughout the entire property.  

Our business focus is outdoor retail and destination hospitality. We have deep roots and a deep love for the Ozarks which is why we are committed to the conservation and restoration of our land and our landmarks.
