Ranching in the Information Age

Written by: Christine
April 19, 2011


The time has finally arrived! We are announcing the makeover of our website and the improvement of our other internet related services. Golden Acres Ranch has become involved with an increasing number of activities and is offering more products than ever. We want to reach more people about the benefits of supporting local, sustainable food producers. We want to support other small ranchers and farmers by sharing what we learn. And we want to do this in ways that give you an entertaining, informative and convenient experience.

This is Bobbie’s daughter, Christine. Back in 2008, Bobbie asked me if I would see what I could do to make her small website a little more useful and attractive. I had no idea it would lead to a career change. Turns out, doing web design allows me to practice a combination of art and logic that I love.

I’ve been looking forward to the day when I could bring our clunky and limited website to one that is a pleasure to use, provides better performance and security, and is “future-proof,” meaning it has the capacity to grow with us. The old website was also turning into an archive for future generations, so we needed to better protect that data.

I hope you will find the organization of our new website logical and the performance improved, especially on the slow connections so common in rural areas. We will continually strive to make the content informative and enjoyable. Please let us know what you think and how we can make the new website a better experience for you. It’s at the same address:

Best regards,
Christine Golden
