Deep Underground Food Storage Facilities

A few years back I spoke to an over the road driver who told me about deliveries he had made to this underground storage facility in Carthage, Missouri. He claimed it was operated by the military, but I have no proof of that. He also stated that only deliveries are made to these facilities, no loads are taken away. I decided to research these facilities online and was amazed to see the videos I have posted here.

These underground storage facilities are deep underground which tells you that what is being placed in them is meant to be protected from some major catastrophic event on the surface. It makes me ask myself, "what is our government preparing for"?

*** After reviewing some of the e-mails I received on this article I wanted to share some information that was brought to my attention. It appears that the facility in Carthage, Missouri is operated by a company called Americold. Though I do not doubt that this company does indeed use some of the space inside these massive cave facilities it is hard to imagine that they are the only one using them.

As you view the video will notice how massive they are and as the truck drives through the cave please notice the shear number of loading docks it passes. In my opinion these simply is no way that one company could use this amount of warehouse space alone.

I would love to hear your comments on this subject so please leave a comment.

No big deal. There are several large cave complexes in Missouri for storage of food and IT/telecommunication equipment. It's safer to store underground and it's easier to keep cool. Kraft has a huge underground complex in Springfield, MO. These caves are developed by mining companies that lease the space out to other companies as warehouses or secure facilities. Nothing out of the ordinary, I've been in several.

No big deal? Did you happen to hear the guy in the second video saying it was an "undisclosed location"??
If this is so normal then why all the secrecy??
Sorry but, it looks to me like the PTB are stocking up and preparing for something big.

Wonder what kind of trouble the guy got into for posting a video of this place. The gov't doesn't like people ratting them out to the sheople.

This is for the US surplus of food. Remember Government cheese? It came from surpluses like these. See:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_cheese

Just stumbled upon your article. I live in Carthage and the Underground is not a secret. Everyone who lives here knows about it, where its at, and the "secret" ways to get into it. There are even "secret" passages from underneath the city square and county courthouse. They were used for bootlegging during prohibition and some suggest the caves and passages were even used for smuggling slaves prior to emancipation. Anything that has been in use that long is not "top secret". So far as the notion that things are only delivered and never leave, that is poppycock. A few years back we had a blizzard that dumped 20 inches of snow on the ground and shut down the highways. Truckers were stuck at the Underground and other locations and were unable to deliver the loads of food that they were taking FROM there to regional stores (including Walmart's distribution centers) and thus many stores even outside the blizzard area ran out of their stock that typically comes from the Underground. It is possible that other things are stored there that belong to the government, but Americold is the main company. There are about 20 other companies that use the facility as well, I know people who work for several of them.

I agree with last comment 100% i have taken food out and brought stuff in from there. Secret they are not by any means. its due to the location and type of rock that make these facilities very effective long term storage facilities.. I.e. Butterball turkeys are frozen there and stored southwest cheese of clovis new mexico ages their cheddars there. Lipton stores ingridients there as well yes ibhave seen some gov. Vehicles there but only the jasper county disaster command rv. While there are train tracls there as well they were lilely used in the construction of the facility.

They also give significant amounts of frozen food to local charities, both in Carthage and in surrounding areas. They weekly give out dozens of pallets of frozen veggies and other foods that the food pantry I volunteer with collects and distributes to the area poor.

I know FOR A FACT that the underground in Carthage is NOT a secret. They store food that is brought in and they also ship food out. There are also several other companies that use the caves for their own companies. They export orders to other countries also. There is nothing that is secret about Americold. Even when you drive by on the road there is a big sign that says Americold on it. If it was a "secret", why would they put their name on a huge sign by the road?! Get your facts straight.

Hey wait untill you have to make a delivery to the caves, it is beautiful and an even temp. all year round.I have been there and done that, back in the late 90's

What better way is there than to hide something important in plain sight. Obviously food is a necessity for survival. A civilian
camouflage serves to assuage fear.
Is there a qualified engineer/contractor who can speak to the economics of retrofitting
versus building an above ground insulated facility.

I worked down there and there are sub levels that the general public does not know about. As for the underground being a secret, it is not at all. Now the government does store stuff down there, but nothing top secret.

Yep Missouri actually has lots of these underground storage locations. Several in the KC area, whre they have a fitness center and tennis courts in one. I guess you got to get your exercise when the world comes to a end. I have been to several of them because my father worked for the USDA and had to inspect them for proper storage processing. Carthage, Neosho, Springfield, KC all over the state. The state of Kansas has several they store old theater movies in one, pump natural gas in others for storage. And even in Oklahoma where their is a commercial mushrooms farm in one. I guess the midwest is a good place to hide stuff underground.

Oh and by the way most of these "caves" are the result of mining. In Missouri its for limestone, which is used in roads, cement and other products. In Kansas it was salt mining for some, and Lead and Zinc in Oklahoma. All these leave big holes where they remove those items, so why not use the area for storage.

ok folks i have several questions.1. why the hell would somebody build some place this big? 2. you name it, its down there. production, assemble, fitness etc.. and 3. where does the funding come from to build something this huge??? very multi millions of clams here.
im not going to say what im thinking because im keeping on the safe side.

Hello, I have lived in Carthage for a little more than 15 years. There is nothing secret about this facility. It is very large, measuring over a mile from end to end in several areas. It is used primarily as cold food storage by many companies. Including hostess as of last week. I have several family members who have and still do work in the caves. They were created by a local rock quarry, which if you look on say google maps you will see has now moved down the road, where it continues to mine and sell its stone as well as supply an onsite asphault company with gravel. Locally these caves are always talked about. There are many many local rumors of a large cave network which snakes around under carthage as well as connects with surrounding cities. This is partly true. There have been several small caves found over the years (all on privately owned property)but most don't really go anywhere. The city of carthage, not that long ago, spent a rather large sum of money digging around town, in hopes of finding the large cavern (which is a 100+ year old rumor) and exploiting it as a tourist attraction. In closing, All in all, there is nothing out of the ordinary here, just a small town with small town rumors.
