Promoting Rural Opportunities and Lifestyle

Business Beyond the Farm, a non-profit organization with a mission to “bring our own back home” to rural Nebraska, has launched a major redesign of their Web site, http://www.businessbeyondthefarm.com 

The site features profiles of towns, rural lifestyles, and successful entrepreneurs in the region, as well as databases of the “best” housing, “best” commercial opportunities, and “best” jobs in the area. In addition, the site has a database of all high school graduates from the South Platte and Republican River valley region from 1940 to 2005, which allows registered users to contact other registered users in the database by email.
 
Although aimed at influencing ex-residents to return to the area, the site is designed to be a resource to anyone considering a change to a rural lifestyle.
