Hays County farms and ranches produce more than $10 million a year in market value of agricultural products sold, but their contribution to the community goes far beyond providing food and fiber. Because open and agricultural lands require less in county expenditures than they generate in taxes, this resource can be a fiscal asset to a county struggling to manage unprecedented growth.
