Our creeks and streams provide a good soil base for crop production such as corn, soybeans, milo and wheat, with a 192 day growing season that allows for double cropping. Most areas are conducive to running cattle with the more popular breeds being Angus, Limousin, Polled Herford, etc.

People come here to raise their families, start or relocate their business, or just retire because of our location, mild climate, fresh air, low cost of living, low crime rate, slow pace of life, access to hunting and fishing, and our own shopping areas.
