Blue Ridge Farms is a mostly unpopulated neighborhood in Kansas City, Missouri. The neighborhood is part of the 64146 zip code and located south of Blue Ridge Boulevard, west of Prospect Avenue, north of 139 Street, and east of Holmes Road.
Homes in Blue Ridge Farms are quite varied in age and very spread out with a considerable amount of greenery surrounding the different communities. This additional space provides excellent tranquility for residents of the neighborhood. The wide mix of ages and styles makes the neighborhood accessible to a wider group of people. This seclusion does come at a slight disadvantage for those looking for big city offerings as it requires a bit more driving, but the benefit is a wide variety in recreational offerings.
One interesting attraction in the area is the Harry S Truman farm home off of Blue Ridge Road to the east. This home has been restored with many period pieces that provide it with a great deal of authenticity although most of the items in the home were never actually owned by the President himself. The home provides a great look into what a farm home looked like many years ago.
Near the Harry S Truman farm home is US Highway 71. Along this stretch of road is where much of the major retail shopping can be done. While the area isn’t substantial it does provide a decent variety of major brand name retailers such as Dollar Tree, CVS Pharmacy, Radio Shack, Payless Shoe Source, and Sam’s Club. The area is also a popular place for restaurants with several big name quick service options such as Mcdonald’s and Arby’s along with a moderate variety of casual dining as well. Overall the area provides a solid mix of day to day goods, services, and foods.
