Historic farm goes on sale near Carthage

Fox Fire Farm Sale at 6

CARTHAGE, Mo. - Carthage artist Lowell Davis is happy to reminisce about his time on the Fox Fire Farm. Following a career as an art director for an advertising agency in Dallas, Davis was eager to return home.

"All that 13 years, all I could think about was getting out of the traffic and everything. I was thinking about getting the hell out of there, and getting me a farm back in Missouri," said Davis. 

Davis created his Missouri farm, but never lost his artistic touch. He built the Fox Fire Farm and created and restored numerous buildings which are scattered among the farm's five acres. And the farm managed to find its way into Davis' art work.

"All these building have been in paintings shown all over the world," said Davis. 

Davis gifted the farm to his daughter who has decided to sell the property now that her kids are grown up. 

"Starting a new chapter. My kids are raised and gone so I'm going to try and sell and downsize my life, and make things a lot simpler," said Davis's daughter Wren Vickers. 

She says selling the farm she grew up in was a tough decision and hopes whoever buys the Fox Fire Farm takes advantage of all it has to offer.

"If it was somebody who wanted to start a business here, a bed and breakfast here, there's a ton of tourists who come through here. I think there's a lot of possibilities for someone," said Wren.
