Journey south for the perfect day trip or weekend getaway nestled in the heart of the Ozarks. Finley Farms, a nature-based gathering place and farm-forward dining destination, rests on the banks of the Finley River in Ozark, Missouri.
Located just south of Springfield, Missouri, guests can shop, tour the urban farm, grab coffee or cocktails, and dine along the river in the historic Ozark Mill.
Preserved with care, The Ozark Mill has a rich history including being the last commercially operating watermill in Missouri before its retirement in 1992. Overlooking the picturesque rolling Finley River waters, enjoy a welcoming dining experience with open beamed ceilings and cozy lighting that makes for the perfect family-friendly dining experience. Try one of the delicious dishes on The Mill’s farm-inspired menu, like Shrimp and Grits or the Midwest Rubin, featuring herbs and ingredients sourced directly from the property. Before leaving, indulge in the Green Tomato Cake, an absolute must-try for all guests.
Once a street, now converted to a prosperous urban farm, The Farm produces a variety of produce that supports the on-property restaurants with seasonal produce and materials for hands-on workshops. Stroll the vibrant farm and enjoy views of a buzzing apiary, bloom-filled flower fields, and a wooded mushroom yard making The Farm a top attraction at Finley Farms and an ideal location for small events and elopements.
Originally built in the 1930s as a MoDot Garage, The Workshop has been reimagined as a charming coffee shop and makerspace overlooking the urban farm. Grab your favorite morning drink along with a bite to eat featuring flavorful toasts, homemade pastries, and made-to-order specialty coffees. Large garage doors open to a lush patio offering sun-soaked seating and photo-worthy views of the farm. At night, the space also offers hands-on education workshops ranging from floral arranging to cocktail making.
Then take a leisurely mile-long walk across the beautiful historic property which encompasses The Farm, The Riverside Bridge, and The Chapel. We also offer a variety of seasonal workshops and events to participate in. Learn more to plan your unforgettable Ozark getaway https://finleyfarmsmo.com/
