The Big Country has a long tradition of farming and ranching and we are excited to display two such families in this issue. Farming and ranching is a legacy to be proud of. My family has farmed and ranched for 8 generations in Jones and Taylor counties, so these articles are near and dear to my heart. My brother, uncle, and cousins are still working the land that their forefathers procured, as is the Bellah family in Throckmorton. Read how they were featured on a national documentary calling ‘Farmland.’ Also check out
‘Home on the Range’ featuring John and Lauren Clark’s longhorn operation making their mark in Buffalo Gap.
We feel so blessed here at With You In Mind Publications and we thank God for His many blessings to our business, community, and state. Read how He is working in the lives of your neighbors. “For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. (Philippians 2:13).” Remember He has a plan for you too!
