"I have been looking around your site this morning and love it! It has lots of very valuable information for my family. We live on 3 acres and some of the information on your site is exactly what I've been looking for. In June we'll have lived in our house for 4 years. I love living where we do. This is the first time I've lived in the country. I've wanted to live in the country since I was a little girl." Jennifer, Midlothian, Texas

"Great site. I am an extension agent in Townsend, Montana. A friend sent me the address to the Urban Rancher web page. I will be teaching a series in Townsend called Neighboring in Montana that addresses urban movement to the country and some of the "conflicts" that occur when people with no ag background move to the county. I will mention your site as a resource that the participants can use for future information. Granted there are some differences between Montana and Texas, but the principles still apply." Virginia Knerr, MSU/Broadwater County Extension Agent, Townsend, Montana.

"We read about your website in our small town local newspaper. We moved from Ft. Worth in 1998 after purchasing 132 acres in Voca, Texas, population 145. Our property runs along the San Saba River, but we have no pond. We have planted a small Vineyard and raise Boar Goats as well as a few longhorns. This is all very new to us and while we are really enjoying the experience...we have gone through a lot of ups and downs. We think your site is great!" Judith and Greg Dustin, Starbright Ranch and Vineyard, Voca, Texas.

"Just found the Urban Rancher Site from an article in the Mason County News. I am a city guy and have owned a small ranch in Llano County for eight years. Information about rural maintenance is very hard to come by. I haven't read all of your site, but it looks like it will be of great benefit to me. Please keep up this good work!" Kenneth Gilliam.
