Barton County, MO     

At the Center of Americas Heartland where the Ozark Mountains meet the majestic golden prairie you’ll find just the right location for starting your own business, new factory, or farm.  With a strong, hard working workforce, growing incentives, and a business minded leadership We're Barton County Missouri, and We're Building It Better.

Barton County’s long term success has been on a strongly diversified economic base and this continues to be the case today. Encompassing major industry employers such as Epoch, Golden Business Forms, and Thorco Industries to strong retail, combined with a solid agricultural base we feel we are set up for success. Barton County is home to several entrepreneurs that took a great idea and made it a successful national business in Fast Eddies Hot Rods, Washburn Farm and Home,  Standley Composite and Milling and Versacourt International. These companies are the model of what entrepreneurship can be and have helped Barton County to continue to grow.

Here in Barton County, agriculture is our backbone and has been since the late 1800s. Barton County has consecutively been one of the leaders in crop production throughout the entire State of Missouri. With this being one of our leading industries we have taken a big step in looking at value added agriculture and new ways to increase the 90 million dollars that the Agriculture Industry brought into our community just a few short years ago. With renewable energy at the front of the new business boom in this country, Barton County is ready and is looking forward to being the leader in renewable energy as we have in crop production in the State of Missouri.

Barton County is centrally located to the rest of America. With Interstate 49 running through the center of our county we are able to reach major transportation intermodal in Kansas City and Tulsa in about 2 hours. We are also located in one of the largest distribution, warehousing, and logistic areas in the State of Missouri. With Interstate 44 only 30 minutes south of us and three major rail lines running through our county, having this type of infrastructure located only minutes from your location we feel that we are ready for the future needs of warehousing, distribution, and logistic companies in this area and throughout the United States.
