Ranch&Country Blog Notes

to get out of the city and still conduct business. However, it didn't change the need to "go to the office" for most urban professionals. As time went by, more and more interactive internet platforms were developed. More and more urban professionals began to "cut the cord" of going to the office. And then in the Spring of 2020, something amazing happened called COVID19. Even at the height of the pandemic "stay at home" phase,

Ranch&CountryMagazine was first published in 1995 - a resource for people who wanted to get out of the city. It was all about small towns, country living, rural values. It talked about "slowing down, and listening to the stars." But who knew that the stars would align over the next decades to make country living and the rural lifestyle readily available to millions of professionally employed urban Americans! www.RanchAndCountry.com went online in 1997. At that time,

many urban professionals were able to keep doing business using interactive internet programs such as Zoom, Webex, etc. Online meetings were so easy - no driving, no parking, no shoe polish. Employees enjoyed the convenience of working from home, so much so that when companies lifted their "stay at home" policies, many employees expressed a preference for continuing to work from home. And the logical next step has been, “Why not work from home in a beautiful bucolic environment, free from traffic, noise, smog, and crime!” So again, the same question first asked by Ranch & Country back in the '90’s is, “Are you ready for the country?” -RC Editor
