Highway construction detours

Hwy 166 east of Chetopa

Hwy. 166 is now closed for construction between 50th St. & 60th St., 4 miles east of Brenda's Berries. Those coming from the east (Joplin, Baxter Springs, etc.) should go 1.0 mile north on 50th St., 1.0 mile west on Greenlawn Rd., & 1.0 mile south on 60th St., then turn right onto Hwy. 166 & go 3.5 miles west to 95th St., our road. Those coming from the north (Columbus, Pittsburg, etc.) should take Hwy. 160 west from Columbus to 90th St. (just before Angelo's Deli), take 90th St. south for 10.0 miles, then turn right onto Hwy. 166 & go 0.5 miles west to 95th St., our road. Those coming from the south (Miami, etc.) should take Hwy. 59 north from Welch, OK to Chetopa, KS, then take Hwy. 166 east for 4.5 miles to 95th St., our road.

Hwy 59 between Oswego and Chetopa

Hwy 59 from Oswego to Chetopa is being repaved this summer. The Hwy will remain open during construction but there will be major traffic delays. If you are driving to our farm from points north and west (Oswego, Altamont, Parsons, Chanute, etc.) you can totally avoid construction delays by driving east of Oswego on Hwy 160 to the small community of Hallowell. Just past Angelo's store turn right onto 90th St. (a paved road).  Drive south for 10.0 miles, then turn right onto Hwy. 166 & go 0.5 miles west to 95th St., our road.
